Colorado Rapids 1-2 FC Dallas: Hoops herald first away win of 2012

Marc Piscotty

Fabian Castillo scored and assisted in Dallas' first road victory of the year, sneaking a result past Colorado.

FC Dallas' first road win of 2012 made sure it only spent a few minutes tied with Toronto FC for the least points in the league. The Colorado Rapids were the victims of the poached 2-1 result.

Colorado opened the scoring shortly after halftime. Conor Casey found Omar Cummings, who scorched infield from the right flank and beat Kevin Hartman near-post.

Fabian Castillo then created the equalizer and scored the winner. First, around the hour mark, he dumped a cleared corner back in the box, and Carlos Rodriguez, on the field barely two minutes, snuck unmarked to the back post to head home.

The hosting Rapids out shooting FCD 15 to 10 and holding 57 percent of possession came to nothing in the 81st minute when Castillo finished off a rebound after Drew Moor headed a chance off the line.
