Toronto 0-1 Dallas: Birthday boy Gonzalez seals Dallas win - Via MLS (4:05)

Jesse Gonzalez's clean sheet in his first game of the season helped FC Dallas defeat Toronto 1-0, and move them to four straight games unbeaten. (4:05)

FC Dallas rode an early goal to a 1-0 win against MLS Cup holders Toronto FC on Friday night at BMO Field.

Oscar Pareja's team took the early lead when Max Urruti redirected a Kellyn Acosta shot past Clint Irwin in the 11th minute to make it 1-0.

Toronto should have been level minutes later, but Jesse Gonzalez kept out Sebastian Giovinco's spot kick after Matt Hedges fouled the Italian in the penalty area.

Urruti missed a golden chance to make it 2-0, heading wide of the far post in front of an open goal when Michael Barrios had set him up with a neat chip back across the six-yard box.

The hosts couldn't find a way through in the second half, with Gonzalez making several fine saves, including a stoppage time scoop in front of a wide-open goal when Toronto should have scored.

The loss sees Greg Vanney's banged-up team fall further adrift of the Eastern Conference leaders in a stuttering start to the 2018 campaign.
