CARSON, Calif. (AP) -- David Ferreira converted a second-half
penalty kick to help FC Dallas beat Chivas USA 2-1 on Saturday
Ferreira scored in the 61st minute after Chivas' Osael Romero
tied it in the 59th minute with his first MLS goal. Ante Jazic
accounted for FC Dallas' first goal, scoring an own goal late in
the first half.
FC Dallas (4-6-2) scored more than one goal for the second
consecutive match and for just the fourth time in 12 MLS games
Chivas, meanwhile, dropped its sixth consecutive match to fall
Romero, though, gave the club a bit of offensive spark. Romero
scored on a header in the 59th minute. But on FC Dallas' next
possession, Jazic knocked Marvin Chavez down inside the penalty
Ferreira fired the spot kick into the left side of the net as
Chivas goalkeeper Zach Thornton dived the opposite way. The goal
was Ferreira's second of the season.
Ferreira also was involved on the club's first goal. In the 45th
minute, Ferreira sent a corner kick toward the goal. FC Dallas'
Brek Shea stood outside the 6-yard box with Jazic behind him,
and the ball bounced off Jazic and past Thornton.
