Result: Perez, Akindele guide Dallas to comeback win
Dallas come from behind to defeat the Los Angeles Galaxy 2-1 in their MLS clash thanks to goals from Blas Perez and Tesho Akindele.

Goals from Blas Perez and Tesho Akindele guided FC Dallas to a 2-1 comeback victory over the Los Angeles Galaxy in their MLS clash.

The home side were the first team to threaten as Mauro Diaz lifted a free kick into the box and Je-Vaughn Watson powered a header at goal, but his effort was straight at Jaime Penedo.

Dallas came within inches of taking the lead when Ryan Hollingshead picked up the ball on the edge of the box and drilled a strike towards goal, but his shot crashed off the post and bounced clear.

Fabian Castillo tested the handling ability of Penedo with two powerful efforts from distance before the break, but the keeper was equal to both strikes to keep the score level.

In the second half, the Galaxy took the lead when Gyasi Zardes peeled off his man at the back post from a corner and guided a header past Dan Kennedy.

Dallas almost responded immediately as Perez released the run of Castillo down the flank, and he raced past Tommy Meyer, only to fire his strike across the face of goal and behind for a goal kick.

The home side got their equaliser as Diaz lifted a ball over the static Galaxy defence for Perez to collect and knock around Penedo before slotting into an empty net.

Diaz turned provider for the Dallas winner as he released the run of Akindele with an inch-perfect crossfield pass, and the forward made no mistake in blasting his strike past Penedo to earn his team the three points.
