FC Dallas blanks Orlando City 4-0
A fourth-minute red card to Orlando City goalkeeper Sean Kelley paved the way to a comfortable 4-0 win for FC Dallas in the nightcap of the Disney Pro Soccer Classic in Orlando on Tuesday.
Kelley took a sloppy touch in the box while being closed down in the box, then kicked the feet out from Dallas forward Blas Perez trying to recover. David Ferreira converted the ensuing penalty, and Dallas were well on their way to a command performance in their second contest in the round robin tournament.
Ferreira would turn provider for the second of the night, putting Colombian countryman Fabian Castillo in behind the OCSC defense. Castillo bent his left-footed shot around backup 'keeper Miguel Gallardo to make it 2-0.
Perez - who did yeoman's work on both sides of the ball - got the third goal of the night when he turned home a Castillo cross in the 55th minute. Sub Andrew Wiedeman added the coup de grace in the 89th when he buried Jair Benitez's cross with a diving header at the near post.
Dallas are back in action on Thursday, when they face Toronto FC at 5 pm CT.
