LA Galaxy 2-0 FC Dallas: Substitute Villarreal undoes stalemate

LA Galaxy 2-0 FC Dallas: Substitute Villarreal undoes stalemate

Ric Tapia

Juninho and Todd Dunivant scored the goals deep into the second half to lead the Galaxy to a 2-0 win over Dallas in the Home Depot Center.

Jose Villarreal was only off the bench for a few minutes when he unknotted a tangled match with FC Dallas, leading the LA Galaxy to a 2-0 home win on Sunday.

The first goal was all Villarreal. The 18-year-old stripped Matt Hedges of the ball and then burned Kevin Hartman before teeing up Juninho. The Brazilian midfielder's acrobatic twirl-flip was probably more impressive than his simple tap-in.

Todd Dunivant iced the match with barely five minutes left to play. The left back worked the ball to Robbie Keane in the box. The Irish striker pulled back and found Michael Stephens, who fed a jutting pass into the path of Dunivant's continued run. A one-touch shot under Hartman marked Dunivant's second goal of the season.
