Romney’s suspension was for diving. The defender successfully feigned contact in the box to draw a second-half penalty, which Giovani dos Santos converted. It temporarily brought the Galaxy level with Dallas, though Dallas would go on to win the game.

Both Jones and Romney each also received a $250 fine. Both decisions were also unanimous.
