FC Dallas earns road point despite two PKs and a red card

FC Dallas overcame two penalty kicks and a red card to earn a road point on goals by Maicon Santos and Brek Shea at Philadelphia Union on Saturday night.

Santos opened the scoring in the 16th minute after pouncing on a miscue by Carlos Valdes to then loft a ball over the Union net minder. Sebastien Le Toux scored the first Philly PK after Justin Mapp and Ugo Ihemelu got tangled up and went down in the box.

Brek Shea grabbed the 2nd FCD goal after Santos and Marvin Chavez combed for a shot Chavez put off the post. A charging Shea grabbed the rebound.

George John got a 2nd caution in the 80th minute putting FCD down a man. Union capitalized in the 84th minute when Jackson fouled Gabriel Farfan in the box and Le Toux notched his second PK of the night.

With the point, FC Dallas maintains its hold on second place in the Western Conference with a 12-6-7 (43 points) mark, while Philadelphia is also second in the Eastern Conference at 8-5-10 (34 points).
