With FC Dallas visiting CenturyLink Field this weekend to face Seattle Sounders FC, it’s a great time to look back on what to date has been FCD’s lone win in the Emerald City. It happened on May 25, 2011 when Brek Shea scored in the 18th minute to send FCD back to the Lone Star State with the full three points thanks to a 1-0 win. Here’s some other pertinent notes from that win:
Lineups and Some Such
Fabian Castillo and Marvin Chavez were paired together up top for FCD.
FCD kept its scoreless streak intact, with that goalless stretch running to a franchise-record 489 minutes after this win.
Seattle had just one shot on goal in the opening frame, coming late in the half when Mauro Rosales tested Kevin Hartman at fairly close range after a nice chip from Fredy Montero into the FCD box.
This game marked the MLS debut for Seattle’s Mike Fucito, who figured into several of the game’s more interesting moments.
Zach Loyd made a great save of a Fucito shot with a header in the 19th minute that likely saved a goal.
Fucito also forced Hartman to tip a shot over the crossbar in the 64th minute.
Andrew Jacobson’s through ball on the Shea goal in the 18th minute was a true thing of beauty.
And apparently, according to Loyd, Shea had a beer dumped on him by some disgusted Seattle fan after his tally.
