Ferreira’s late goal lifts Dallas over Sporting KC 2-1

FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Alan Velasco scored early in the second half, Jesús Ferreira scored late and FC Dallas celebrated a 2-1 win over Sporting Kansas City on Saturday night.

Sporting KC took an early lead when Dániel Sallói struck without a assist in the 11th minute. It was Sporting KC’s first goal of the season and Sallói’s seventh goal against Dallas, his best against an opponent to date.

Dallas (2-1-1) didn’t get on the scoreboard until Velasco took a pass from Sebastian Lletget and scored 10 minutes into the second half. Ferreira’s match winner came without a template in the 84th minute.

Dallas clinched a win after going 1-1-1 for the fifth straight game. Dallas have conceded a goal in 10 straight games from last season, including the playoffs, the longest active streak in the league.

Sallói has scored five of Sporting KC’s last eight goals of the series. The club had gone 274 minutes without a goal or goal, having drawn their last two games goalless and giving the Portland Timbers a goal six minutes into the season.
