You’re hearing this correctly. For the first time in 2012 FCD can claim a win streak: two Western Conference foes faced, two downed. Wednesday’s victory in the Great White North against Vancouver was ideal. A Dallas side that was Brek Shea-less (and de Guzman-less for that matter) took it to the once high-flying Whitecaps. It was also a shutout, the first on the road for Dallas this year, and should do nothing but induce confidence amongst the squad as they head into Salt Lake.
For those that quashed Dallas’ playoff hopes weeks ago: you’re almost justified. FCD are one two-game collapse away from ruining minute playoff prospects some still cling to dearly. Out of the next eight matches, six of them will be played against teams currently ranked higher than Dallas. Despite the team’s inability to close out matches during the first half of the 2012 season the team is still actually “in it.”
