Eric Alexander had a goal and an assist and FC Dallas extended its franchise-record unbeaten streak to 15 games, tying the New York Red Bulls, 2-2, in Frisco, Texas, on Thursday.
Dallas (10-2-12) is 8-0-7 during the streak, three off the MLS season record set by Columbus in 2004.
The Red Bulls tied it in the 82nd minute on Dallas defender Jair Benitez’s own goal. Milton Rodriguez also scored for Dallas, and Mehdi Ballouchy connected for New York. Ballouchy’s first-half tally snapped Dallas’ scoreless streak at 415 minutes.
Dallas goalkeeper Kevin Hartman left the match following Ballouchy’s goal because of a foot injury sustained when Red Bulls star Thierry Henry attempted to triumphantly drill the ball from the goalmouth into the crowd but caught Hartman’s foot along with the ball.
D.C. United goalkeeper Bill Hamid has undergone season-ending surgery for a torn labrum in his right shoulder.
