FC Dallas 2 Colorado Rapids 2

October 12, 2010 3 comments

FC Dallas stumbled to a 2-2 draw against Colorado on a warm Saturday afternoon at Pizza Hut Park. Jeff Larentowicz, a thorn in Dallas’ side over the years, opened the scoring on what looked like a deflected shot that fooled Dario Sala to put Colorado ahead early.

FC Dallas would respond brilliantly, however, as Milton Rodriguez pulled things level with a poachers goal after Atiba Harris hit the cross bar and David Ferreira added another line to his MLS MVP resume with a great goal before halftime to put FC Dallas ahead.

Unfortunately, FCD came out with a lackluster effort in the second half allowing Larentowicz to score his second of the game in the 51st minute to tie the game up. FCD had many chances but was unable to find a winner and the teams shared the points.

Game Observations

Tough to make many observations on a game I wasn’t able to see. Due to the ridiculous inability to record FSSW+ on Time Warner Cable(Does anyone else have this problem), I missed an FC Dallas game for the second time this season(the first being the Seattle home game on the night I proposed to my girlfriend). Don’t even get me started on the game REPLAY being blacked out on the MLS online video package….pure insanity.

-Three games in a row with a goal or assist for Marvin Chavez. The speedy Honduran is playing his best FC Dallas soccer at the perfect time. Chavez is the secret weapon for FCD that teams haven’t had to game plan for this season and his success is a key to playoff success. Schellas has some tough decisions to make once Brek gets back from Philadelphia.
