Minnesota United prolong FC Dallas slump with 4-1 win
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Christian Ramirez had a goal and two assists and Minnesota United beat FC Dallas 4-1 Saturday night, extending Dallas’ winless streak to 10 games.
The Loons (9-15-5) trailed early when Tesho Akindele opened the scoring for FC Dallas (9-9-11) in the 14th minute. But Ramirez tied it in the 25th minute and Miguel Ibarra volleyed home Ramirez’s deep chip pass in the 35th to give Minnesota the lead for good.
Ethan Finlay finished a two-pass combo from Rameriz and Collin Martin in the 71st and Abu Danladi drove past goalkeeper Jesse Gonzalez for an easy finish after a breakaway from midfield in the 88th.
FC Dallas is 0-6-4 since its last win on July 22, a slide that has dropped the club from Supporters Shield contention to a four-team battle with Houston, Real Salt Lake and San Jose for the final two playoff positions in the West.
