FC Dallas had gone 13 matches without a win. A span of three miserable months that sucked the life out of a season that began with so much promise. There was very little reason to think Dallas would be able to go to Colorado and find that elusive victory in one of the tougher places to play in MLS, but FC Dallas found a way to end their misery, if only for one night.
Dallas overcame an Omar Cummings goal in the 50th minute to rattle off a pair of goals, including a Fabian Castillo winner in the 81st minute, to help FC Dallas post a 2-1 victory at Dick's Sporting Goods Park on Saturday night.
Just a day after announcing the addition of Canadian midfielder Julian DeGuzman via trade, FC Dallas trotted out a lineup with plenty of familiar faces, including 2010 MLS MVP David Ferreira, and U.S. national team midfielder Brek Shea. But it was Colombian speedster Castillo who would make the difference on the night, setting up a Carlos Rodriguez equalizer before finishing off a goal of his own to send the Rapids to a home loss and give Dallas a ray of hope after months of disappointment.
Here are the match highlights:
