FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – FC Dallas (2-0-3) defeated the New England Revolution 1-0 tonight at Gillette Stadium on a goal scored by Jacori Hayes in the 76th minute.
FC Dallas ramped up the offensive pressure in the 13th minute, when a long ball played over the top was brought down by Cristian Colman. As the forward neared the area, he was clipped from behind by a Revolution defender but referee Hilartio Grajeda judged that there was no foul on the play.
Three minutes later, Colman was at it again. The Paraguayan came free at the top of the six-yard box and Roland Lamah found him with a lobbed pass played to the back post. Colman got good pace on his headed shot, but New England goalkeeper Andrew Farrell made a diving save to his right side to slap the chance away.
The Revolution returned fire in the 23rd minute. Teal Bunbury chipped a header backwards toward the crossbar but the looping shot was guided over the bar at the last second by FC Dallas goalkeeper Jimmy Maurer.
Victor Ulloa fought through a challenge and then sent a pass forward for Lamah in the 40th minute. The pass deflected off a Revolution defender and skipped out in front of Lamah, who was in alone on goal. FCD’s leading scorer this season tried to beat Turner high to his left side with a hard shot but the goalkeeper made a diving save to keep the match level, 0-0.
Maurer answered Turner’s save at the opposite end in the 43rd minute. Scott Caldwell came free inside the area and had a first-touch shot on goal but FC Dallas’ goalkeeper was in perfect position to punch the shot away from goal.
After a long buildup FC Dallas got its first good look of the half when Santiago Mosquera crossed a ball into the area for Colman. The striker rose above his marker to head the ball on goal, but Turner was in position to make the save.
FC Dallas broke through in the 76th minute when a cross to the back post was half cleared by a Revolution defender. Lamah collected the loose ball, picked up his head and played a sharp pass into the feet of Jacori Hayes, who had made a cutting run towards the front post. Hayes finished off the chance with a sharp pass just inside the post to Turner’s left side to put the visitors ahead 1-0.
