Facing off with the unbeaten Montreal Impact, FC Dallas benefited from a pair of late goals to earn a statement victory, as well as recognition as SBI MLS Team of the Week.

Those efforts finally paid off in the 79th minute as Mauro Diaz pushed FC Dallas ahead with what turned out to be the game-winning goal. Maximiliano Urruti added the second just eight minutes later, earning FC Dallas an impressive home win against an Impact team that was dominant through the opening two weeks.
