FC Dallas defeats Seattle 2-0 in Florida scrimmage
By Buzz Carrick
FC Dallas knocked off the Seattle Sounders on Monday 2-0 in a scrimmage at Disney's Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando, Florida. Marvin Chavez and Brek Shea scored for FC Dallas while new signing Andrew Jacobson was sent off for a straight red card.
Coach Schellas Hyndman named Brek Shea, David Ferreira, and Marvin Chavez as the stand out performers for his team and also praised his defense's performance.
What we've come to recognize as the first eleven played the first half with Ruben Luna getting the start instead of Milton Rodriguez. "I thought Ruben did a good job considering it was the first time he really started for us," coach Hyndman said. "He was strong, physical and became a real handful for them."
Alexis Pradie and Zach Loyd continue to get the bulk of time at center back for the injured Ugo Ihemelu and George John.
