THE ANGELS – Editor’s Note: The Associated Press contributed to this story.
Despite an outstanding goal from Jesus Ferreira, FC Dallas fell to LAFC 3-1 at the Banc of California Stadium on Wednesday night.
Ferreira’s goal was his tenth of the season, leading Major League Soccer. So was he his first goal of his career in a free kick, believe it or not. Ferreira was allowed to take it quickly by the referee, much to the dismay of the goalkeeper who wasn’t prepared. 38 minutes into the game, 1-0 was the halftime score.
The USMNT standout rolled the ball with a right-footed shot and knocked it down on the crossbar with ease. Or at least it makes it seem easy. Ferreira’s goal leveled the bar, but LAFC’s talent turned out to be too much in the second half.
Christian Arango finished off a first-touch goal with an impressive deep pass from Mexican team captain and player Carlos Vela. Arango’s goal in the 57th minute put LAFC ahead again and Kwadwo Opoku threw the dagger in the 86th minute.
Maxime Crepeau saved two shots for the LAFC. Maarten Paes saved eight shots for Dallas.
The LAFC (11-3-3) plays next Saturday against the Vancouver Whitecaps on the road, and Dallas (7-5-5) will host Inter Miami on Monday. FC Dallas ranks fourth in the Western Conference standings with 26 points for the season.
