On Wednesday night, FC Dallas defeated one of the league’s best teams, the Philadelphia Union, 1-0. Jesus Ferreira scored his 15th goal of the season, extending the team’s home winning streak to three games. To begin the game, the Union made it difficult for FC Dallas. In the first ten minutes, the visitors forced Dallas’ back line into some simple errors, forcing Maarten Paes to make a couple of big saves. The attack took over once FC Dallas managed to calm things down. Paul Arriola dashed forward on the right wing in the 34th minute and found Ferreira darting into the penalty box. Ferreira beat a defender with one clever touch of his left foot before firing past Andre Blake for the game’s lone goal. In contrast to previous 1-0 leads surrendered late by FC Dallas, the club’s defense was able to be tenacious and limit the Union’s chances on goal to just three in the match. Instant reaction: Could this be the season’s biggest win? I believe so. The Union are a very good team that is difficult to break down in the back. They were allowing less than a goal per game coming into this one, so the fact that FC Dallas was able to break through their defense is impressive. You also have to credit the back line for remaining steadfast in this one and not bending late in the game when the Union was piling on the pressure. This game would have ended in a tie a month ago, but the mentality of this team has shifted in the right direction. While FC Dallas does not currently have a game in hand on anyone in the Western Conference, they have recently picked up points where they should have. Man of the match: Pass it to Jesus for his goal here. FC Dallas’ future plans: On Sunday evening, the club returns to the road for the first time in their new home, visiting Nashville SC.
