FC Dallas eliminated from US Open Cup by Seattle
Andrew Jacobson started in the back line for FCD, despite the return of George John to FCD. John came on at half time for Daniel Cruz, who had been carded, with Coach Schellas Hyndman shifting Jacobson into midfield. The changes at halftime solidified the Dallas defense and the addition of Jacobson to midfield helped FCD get forward more but the Red Stripes were unable to score.
The Seattle goal come on a pass from Alvaro Fernandez, who found Montero at the top of the box. Montero faked right to make space and shot back to the left side for a well placed goal.
