FC Dallas left it late, but scored a dramatic winner to put an end to their two-game losing streak in a 1-0 win against the New England Revolution on Thursday evening at FC Dallas Stadium. FCD is tied for fifth place in the Western Conference with 7 points from 5 matches.

- Ugo Ihemelu's goal five minutes into second-half stoppage time was the second-latest goal scored in FCD club history. On May 25, 2002, Chad Deering scored nine minutes added time to give Dallas a dramatic 1-1 draw with Columbus.

- In the first 4-1/2 years of his MLS career, with LA and Colorado, Ihemelu scored one goal in 118 appearances. He now has five goals in 63 appearances since joining FC Dallas midway through the 2009 season.

- Striker Fabian Castillo was able to return to the lineup for the first time since being forced out of the opening match after just 31 minutes with a knee contusion. Castillo was partnered with Blas Perez in attack as Hyndman went with a twin-striker scheme, after Perez had played as a lone striker for the most part in FCD's opening four matches.

- FCD was forced into a change in central defense when George John took a ball to the face in the 71st minute. John was making his second start in three matches. In his place, rookie Matt Hedges was given his professional debut.

- FC Dallas was also forced into a change just after the hour mark when Ricardo Villar couldn't continue and was replaced by Bobby Warshaw. "He twisted his foot. We'll get an X-ray on it and see how he is," said Hyndman.


The Montreal Impact won their first-ever game in Major League Soccer, returning home for a 2-1 triumph against arch-rival Toronto FC on Saturday afternoon at Olympic Stadium. The Impact are tied for seventh place in the Eastern Conference with 4 points from 6 matches.

- For a second consecutive match, Marsch made five changes to his team. Justin Mapp and Davy Arnaud each did not start for the first time this season.

- It was the first time in three weeks where the Impact will have two games in quick succession. Following the trip to Dallas, the Impact will play at D.C. United on Wednesday.

- Sinisa Ubiparipovic made his first appearance of the season after suffering an injury to the MCL in his knee during preseason. It was his first appearance in an MLS game since Sept. 4, 2010, when he was playing for the New York Red Bulls.

- Andrew Wenger, the No. 1 overall selection in the 2012 MLS SuperDraft, made his fifth appearance as a substitute this season and scored the eventual winning goal. Wenger is still completing his degree at Duke University.

Schellas Hyndman: Montreal's play reflects coach

April, 11, 2012
I asked FC Dallas head coach Schellas Hyndman several questions about his side’s next opponent, the Montreal Impact, whom FCD will face on Saturday night in Frisco and here’s what he had to say.

What are your general thoughts on Jesse Marsch’s club?

Hyndman: Expansion team, glad to see them get their first win, I didn’t want them to be hungry after us. A home team, not surprisingly they’ve worked hard. They’ve been pretty intense. They lead the league in fouls with I think 95 called on. The second team is Colorado with 72, big jump from second to first. I think that’s because they’re hungry and it’s the coaching mentality. Jesse Marsch is a guy that’s always been a battler, very courageous, a fighter. A lot of times your team will reflect the coach and there’s things that he wants, some players that he wants that will do the things he wants. So I think they got their first three points. They have to be real excited about that. They’re coming in trying to get success on the road.

Has Andrew Wenger, the top overall pick in the 2012 MLS Super Draft, been every bit as good as advertised?

Hyndman: Yeah, I think he was on everyone’s list for the first pick in the draft. He’s another very good player but also very versatile.

Shavar Thomas, who played for the Dallas Burn back in 2003, is a guy who has hung around in MLS for some time and had a nice career. Talk about him.

Hyndman: He’s really taken care of himself, a guy that plays in the league and in a position like that who continues to play. They’re athletic. They’re courageous. They’re able to overcome pain and then as they get older, they’re able to keep a good lifestyle, keep shape, keep good recovery because as you get older and the pain starts to come, you need just a little bit more time. You need an extra day, an extra two days. I think he’ s had an excellent career. By no means is it over. I don’t mean it that way, but he ought to be really proud of himself.
Major League Soccer held today the 2011 Expansion Draft for the Montreal Impact who begin MLS play in 2012. The Impact selected 10 players none of them from FC Dallas.

FC Dallas will return to ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World Resort for the 2012 edition of the tournament in late February as defending champions having won the 2011 Disney Pro Soccer Classic.

FC Dallas will be joined by in-state rivals Houston Dynamo as well as Toronto FC, Vancouver Whitecaps FC, Montreal Impact, Sporting Kansas City, Sweden’s B.K. Hacken and Orlando City SC. FCD will face B.K. Hacken, Orlando City, and Toronto FC in pool play.

“This is unquestionably the best Disney Pro Soccer Classic field we’ve had so far,’’ said Disney Sports manager Patrick Dicks. “This will be a rare opportunity for fans to see so many marquee pro soccer teams in one place and experience the game in an intimate, family-friendly atmosphere.’’

The Classic begins with a week of pool play Feb. 24-March 1, followed by the championship game March 3. The tournament will offer fans unique interaction with players, such as the Orlando City SC “Fan Fest” on Feb. 25 when fans can meet Orlando City players and pose for photos with the team’s trophies.

Placed in Pool 2 with Toronto FC, Orlando City and B.K. Hacken, FC Dallas will kick off the tournament with an 8 p.m. matchup against B.K. Hacken on Feb. 25. Three days later, FC Dallas will meet Orlando City for the third time in two seasons in a match also scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. FC Dallas’ final match of pool play will be on March 1 against Toronto FC. That game is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m.

FC Dallas knocks off Toronto in CCL, tops Group C

August, 25, 2011
FC Dallas traveled to Toronto for a mid-week CONCACAF Champions League match and over a game and a half defeated TFC by a 2-0 score line... sorta of. After Wednesday's match was rained out at halftime with a 1-0 FCD lead, the replay went off Thursday morning with FCD again winning 1-0. (CONCACAF matches is called before full time are replayed in full).

With the shutout win FCD tied the Montreal Impact's record of posting shutouts in its first 4 #CCL games.

New defender Jack Stewart, added last week for defensive depth, started in the back line and scored the loan goal off a cross from FCD's other center back, Ugo Ihemelu.

There are some concerns of a possible injury to Jackson, who left the game after 30 minute for Fabian Castillo. It's unclear at this time if Jackson is injured, but a sub at the 30 minute mark is very unusual.

FCD now sits atop Group C with 6 points in two games. FC Dallas will next host Tauro from Panama at Pizza Hut Park in CCL play on September 14th at 7 PM CT.

Scoring Summary:

DAL – Jack Stewart (Ugo Ihemelu) 45+

Toronto FC (CAN): 30- Milos KO I; 6- Julian DE GUZMAN, 7- Joao PLATA, 9- Ryan JOHNSON, 15- Matthew STINSON (80’: 4- Doneil HENRY), 20- Ty HARDEN, 22- Torsten FRINGS, 25- Danleigh BORMAN (54’: 5- Ashtone MORGAN), 27- Richard ECKERSLEY, 28- Gianluca ZAVARISE (56’: 21- Leandre GRIFFIT), 70- Peri MAROSEVIC.
