It took the Los Angeles Galaxy some time, but they eventually figured out how to break down FC Dallas’ patchwork defense and keep the one-time West leaders heading in the wrong direction in the win-loss column.
Second-half goals from Marcelo Sarvas and Hector Jimenez helped give the Galaxy a 2-0 victory over FC Dallas on Sunday night at StubHub Center.
FC Dallas goalkeeper Raul Fernandez did his best to keep the Galaxy off the scoreboard, but LA broke through in the 65th minute when Keane streaked down the left flank and delivered a perfect short cross to an on-running Sarvas, who headed it home for the 1-0 lead.
Keane had a hand in the second Galaxy goal as well, laying off a pass to Robbie Rogers down the left flank, where Rogers then delivered a perfect pass to a wide-open Hector Jimenez in front of goal. Jimenez made no mistake, converting the chance and securing the victory for the Galaxy.
The loss drops FC Dallas to 0-2-4 in their past six, and it pulls the Galaxy to within a point of FC Dallas for second place in the Western Conference.
