FC Dallas back in Supporters’ Shield race after 2-1 win over Vancouver

After several days of frustration after frustration with Dallas-Fort Worth teams against Canadian teams, FC Dallas put up a brightest spot of any DFW team so far this week. Wednesday night the Hoops thoroughly dominated the Vancouver Whitecaps to the tune of a 2-0 win to solidify their spot atop the Western Conference. And with the New York Red Bulls losing to Toronto earlier in the evening, the Hoops are now level on points for the Supporters' Shield, though there is a minus-four goal differential to make up.

Western Conference likely to again boast of MLS Cup winner

To say that the Western Conference is stacked is an understatement. Last year, it was a brutal conference just to get into the postseason. Just ask the Portland Timbers, who finished the season with 49 points, a total that might have put them into the playoffs on the Eastern Conference side of the bracket (depending on how the tiebreakers went).

Time for FC Dallas to capitalize on momentum

The best part about FC Dallas' 2-1 win over Vancouver Saturday night wasn't that they actually won the game. It wasn't Blas Perez's half-cross, half-prayer of a goal to open the scoring. It wasn't even that they bounced back after the Whitecaps had tied to take the three points. Instead, the best part about that win is that they didn't let the past two loses turn into three and another late season swoon.

Cascadia Cup the best rivalry in American soccer

Rivalries define not only sports, but rivalries. How many times do we see an entire region or country defined by a rivalry between two teams? There's Manchester City vs. Manchester United, Boston Red Sox vs. New York Yankees and Dallas Cowboys vs. Philadelphia Eagles. But there's one rivalry that's under almost everyone's radar, but it'll likely come into the same conversation as the rivalries mentioned above. The Cascadia Cup.

FC Dallas can’t let draw at Vancouver mark beginning of the end

In the second half against Vancouver, FC Dallas would give that lead back with its own handball in the box for a penalty kick. Pedro Morales easily slotted that home to level the game once again and then Vancouver went on the attack. FC Dallas goal keeper Raul Fernandez had to make save after save to keep it at a draw. While a point on the road is fine, it has put FC Dallas in a bit of a difficult spot in the standings.
