D.C. United vs. FC Dallas: United Take Early Lead, But FC Dallas Get Equalizer Before Halftime

D.C. United struggled for much of the first half at home against FC Dallas. Dwayne De Rosario bombed a couple shots on target, but for the most part FC Dallas looked to be in control. That is, until United forward Maicon Santos scored the first home goal of the season for United in the 28th minute to put the Black-And-Red up 1-0.

FC Dallas had a few early chances and forced United goalkeeper Joe Willis to make two fantastic saves in the first ten minutes. Willis made another fantastic save in the 20th minute, but the goalkeeper had no chance on FC Dallas' goal in the 41st minute. After Defender Emiliano Dudar misplayed a pass, Blas Perez walked in on goal and put low shot past Willis.

D.C. United and FC Dallas will both be looking for a winner in the second half. United need all 3 points, and cannot afford to drop their first two at home.
