FC DALLAS
FC Dallas saw their winless skein reach four games, playing two men short from the first half on in a 2-0 loss to the
Colorado Rapids on Sunday evening at FC Dallas Stadium. FCD is in sixth place in the Western Conference with 12
points from 10 matches.
LAST MATCH
     FC Dallas were two men shortbefore the first half was over. In the 34th minute, Daniel Hernandez sent Rapids
         midfielder Martin Rivero to the turf and earned a second yellow card for the game. Just minutes later, FCD was
         reduced to nine men when Blas Pérez was issued a straight red card for a reckless tackle on Rapids’ defender
         Drew Moor.
     The Rapids finally broke through in the 61st minute when Jaime Castrillón got on the end of a Brian Mullan
         cross to head the ball past FC Dallas 'keeper Kevin Hartman.
     Martín Rivero sealed the victory with a 74th-minute goal, his first in MLS, collecting a Mullan pass in the heart
         of the area and turning himself around to stroke a left-footed shot into the corner of the goal.
     FC Dallas head coach Schellas Hyndman made one change to the team that played to a 1-1 result with the LA
         Galaxy at The Home Depot Center. Scott Sealy started in place of Brek Shea.
     FC DALLAS (4-4-2): Kevin Hartman - Zach Loyd, George John, Ugo Ihemelu, Jair Benitez - Jackson (Ruben
         Luna 82), Daniel Hernandez (sent off 34), Andrew Jacobson, Fabian Castillo (Hernan Pertuz 46) - Blas Perez
         (sent off 36), Scott Sealy (James Marcelin 46).


MLS GAME INFORMATION
TEAM NEWS
    FC Dallas saw their winless run reach four games, having taken just two of a possible 12 points since their last
      win, April 12 vs. Montréal.
    “I was really proud about how much they gave,” said FCD head coach Schellas Hyndman. “I mean look at Jair
      [Benítez] attacking, defending, attacking, defending and until you really play the game you don’t realize how
      much space you have to cover.”
    After playing two men down for nearly a third of the match, FC Dallas finally broke with Colorado scoring two
      goals in a 13-minute span.
    “We tried to go two banks of four to try to frustrate them and maybe get a free kick, a breakaway or give the
      referee a chance to pull a card out,” Hyndman said.
    Brek Shea was held out of the match after the contest at LA, when he was substituted after 76 minutes. Shea is
      also dealing with turf toe.
    “He got a turf toe and he’s been working his way through it,” Hyndman said. “This week he didn’t train. With the
      three games coming up this week, it was really hard to not be able to count on him for the next two. So we did
      the safe thing and gave him a little bit of a break.”
    Kevin Hartman made his return to the lineup after missing three games with back spasms. He was credited
      with seven saves on the evening. “He did real well,” Hyndman said. “Kevin’s our No. 1 [goalkeeper].”
    When Hernandez and Perez were sent off, James Marcelin was given his FC Dallas debut, coming in for Scott
      Sealy as Hyndman tried to readjust his line. He could figure in the first XI for the Seattle match with Hernandez
      suspended.
    “He did fine,” Hyndman said. “It’s a difficult game and he hadn’t been playing a lot up in Portland but we
      needed somebody in there for Daniel.”
    Once again, Hyndman will be forced to make changes in his side – he has yet to keep the same team from one
      game to the next, and has run out 10 different lineups this season.
    “We won’t be putting our best team on the field because of the red cards and the injuries,” Hyndman said, “but I
      know I have a lot of guys in the locker room looking for an opportunity, and so they’ll be given that opportunity.”

SEATTLE SOUNDERS FC
Seattle Sounders FC ran their winning streak to four games with another shutout, this time a 1-0 defeat of Philadelphia
Union on Saturday evening at CenturyLink Field. Sounders FC are in third place in the Western Conference with 19
points from 8 games.
LAST MATCH
     The game's lone goal came in the 63rd minute. Fredy Montero found Mauro Rosales on the right wing with a
         perfectly weighted pass from the top of the penalty area. The Argentinean took one touch and beat Union
         goalkeeper Zac MacMath to the far post.
     Sounders FC goalkeeper Bryan Meredith, making his first professional start, was credited with one save in the
         shutout.
     Sounders FC head coach Sigi Schmid made six changes to the team that defeated the LA Galaxy 2-0 at
         CenturyLink Field. Bryan Meredith came in at goalkeeper for Michael Gspurning; Adam Johansson, Patrick
         Ianni and Marc Burch came into the back four for Zach Scott, Jhon Kennedy Hurtado and Leo Gonzalez; and
         Andy Rose and Alex Caskey came into the team for Brad Evans and Eddie Johnson.
     SEATTLE SOUNDERS FC (4-4-2): Bryan Meredith - Adam Johansson, Jeff Parke, Patrick Ianni, Marc Burch -
         Mauro Rosales (Leo Gonzalez 82), Andy Rose (Eddie Johnson 61), Osvaldo Alonso, Alex Caskey (Servando
         Carrasco 93+) - Fredy Montero, David Estrada.
TEAM NEWS
     At 6-1-1, Sounders FC are off to the best start in the club’s MLS history. “Three games in a week is not an easy
         task, but we came out with nine points so that is something that we are very happy about,” said Sounders FC
         head coach Sigi Schmid.
     Sounders FC have recorded back-to-back shutouts, four in their last five games and in five games on the
         season. The shutout against Philadelphia came with three different players in the back four – only center back
         Jeff Parke kept his place from midweek.
     “We said we had three changes in the back, but to me I feel like we have seven starters,” Schmid said. “I have
         no problem whether it is the four guys out there today, or whether [Jhon] Kennedy [Hurtado] is out there,
         whether Zach [Scott] is out there, or Leo [Gonzalez] is out there, I feel like with any of those seven we don't
         miss a beat in back. I am not surprised by that.”
     Mauro Rosales scored his first goal of the season, in his third start after missing four matches with a knee
         sprain.
     “It was a great pass from Fredy [Montero]. I tried to score on my chance in the game, and tried to finish it the
         best way. I got lucky it was a good ball and we got the three points,” Rosales said. “ … I've been working really



MLS GAME INFORMATION
      hard to get my fitness and get the pain out of my knee and my ankle. The last two games I've felt very good
      and we'll have to keep going like that.”
     Fredy Montero collected his first assist of the season, setting up Rosales after opening his goalscoring account
      at midweek.
     “Obviously when they spend more time together they will have a better understanding. I think that everybody
      who has seen us the last couple of seasons knows how important Mauro [Rosales] is to our creative side of the
      game,” Schmid said. “Eddie [Johnson] gives us a different dimension up front and Fredy, although he was
      unlucky again today not to get a goal, is a guy who gets around the goal, as well, and gets those opportunities.
      Those three, and then eventually you add [Alvaro Fernandez] to the group, those four will be fun group to
      watch. We just need to make sure we defend enough behind them.”
     Bryan Meredith was given his first professional start in goal, after making his full debut at midweek when first-
      choice goalkeeper aggravated a hip injury in the first half of the LA Galaxy match.
     “It was a lot of fun – very exciting,” Meredith said. “I wasn’t too nervous. It was a relatively easy game for me.
      The back four didn’t really allow much through and I don’t think I saw any shots on target so I think it was a
      good way to start my first game.”
     Schmid said Gspurning will likely miss both matches this week. He said there is an outside chance he will
      available to return for the May 19 contest vs. Vancouver Whitecaps FC.
     “There’s an outside shot that he would be able to be back by the time we play Vancouver, or maybe that week
      after,” Schmid said. “They feel pretty confident in terms of it’s something that will take two to three weeks to
      ramp him up to full activity.”
