Real Salt Lake's defense hadn't allowed a goal in 566 minutes, but FC Dallas wasn't content to just snap that streak. The Red Stripes scored two goals for good measure to knock off their Western Conference rivals.

Colombian striker Milton Rodriguez made an impressive debut for Dallas in its 2-0 victory against Real Salt Lake at Pizza Hut Park on Saturday night. He blasted a shot at Nick Rimando that led to a Brek Shea blast to make the score 1-0. Shea helped make it 2-0 when he set up Atiba Harris for a 76th minute insurance goal.

The victory improved FC Dallas' unbeaten streak to six matches, while ending a 10-match unbeaten run for Real Salt Lake. It also moved Dallas into sole possession of third place in the Western Conference.

Real Salt Lake's 566-minute streak without allowing a goal is the third longest in MLS history.

What did you think of FC Dallas' performance? Think Rodriguez can make Dallas a serious Western Conference contender? Surprised to see RSL's defense finally crack?
