Matchday 14: LAFC takes on FC Dallas in the clubs second meeting this week. On Thursday, LAFC took a 2-0 win at the Banc. Today, the Black and Gold travel to Texas. LAFC and Dallas have faced off three times before and LAFC are 1-1-1, with the 2-0 win on Thursday.
LAFC and FC Dallas were back and forth for the first half, with LAFC having more chances, but FC Dallas goalkeeper Jesse Gonzalez continued to come up big. As my friends at Heart of LAFC said earlier this week, this would be a goalkeeper match. Tyler Miller and Jesse Gonzalez continuously made big saves to keep the match low scoring.
But late into the first half, FC Dallas got on the board. LAFC Defenders left a man open and he buried it off a cross. Down 1-0 going into the half.
As the second half begun and went on, the Black and Gold could not find the back of the net. But late in the match, the league leading goalscorer showed up and put one in the back of the net from the spot, making it 1-1.
That was basically it from the match, ending all tied up at one a piece. Glass half full mentality is what we need to continue to push and be better when we play the Montreal Impact, this Friday at the Banc.
