FC Dallas steamrolls AZ Sahuaros
By Buzz Carrick
FC Dallas ran roughshod over AZ Sahuaros 7-0 at the Reach 11 Sports Complex in Phoenix, Arizona Saturday night. Milton Rodriguez had two goals for the Red Stripes with David Ferreira adding a goal and two assists.
Aside form the injury debacle at center back, which Brek Shea pairing with Scott Gordon, most of the starting eleven took the field to start the match. It's perhaps not shocking that FCD was up 6-0 at halftime then. Eric Avila got the nod at left mid with Shea in the back line. Eric Alexander continues to hold down the linking midfield role.
It can't be good for Maykel Galindo or Kevin Gal that they failed to score in the 2nd half against this level of competition before being pulled for home grown players. Ruben Luna netted in the 90th plus minute for the 7th FCD goal.
