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...
