Final Score: San Jose 2, FC Dallas 1
Frisco, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - FC Dallas saw its poor run of form continue
on Saturday as the club suffered a 2-1 loss to the San Jose Earthquakes at
Dallas, entering the match on a seven-match winless streak, made a bright
start in Saturday's affair, taking the lead in the 16th minute when Blas Perez
got on the end of Fabian Castillo's cross and slammed the delivery past Jon
Busch with an acrobatic volley.
But San Jose answered in slightly controversial fashion 11 minutes later as
Steven Lenhart appeared to settle a cross with arm before laying the ball off
for Atiba Harris to tuck home from close range.
Things went from bad to worse for Dallas as Adam Moffat was sent off in the
37th minute with a second caution of the match.
The 'Quakes eventually capitalized on the one-man advantage as Jean-Baptiste
Pierazzi uncorked a sublime shot from distance that eluded the outstretched
arm of Chris Seitz and nestled into the top corner.
Castillo had a tremendous opportunity to level the score for the home side
when he drew a penalty in first-half stoppage time, but the Dallas striker was
denied by Busch on the ensuing attempt.
A scoreless second period allowed San Jose (4-4-4) to collect its third
victory in its last four league outings to climb to 16 points on the season.
Dallas (5-7-3) remains in search of its first league win since April 19.
