FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Dominique Badji scored twice, Bressan added another and FC Dallas beat Toronto FC 3-0 on Saturday night.
Badji’s short tap-in from the left of the goal at the 41st minute drew the ire of Toronto defenders who argued he was offside but the goal stood. Bressan scored his first goal of the season on a quick header off a corner kick in the 51st.
Badji finished the scoring in the 58th, taking a pass on an uncontested run down the left and bending a shot in.
Sixteen-year-old Ricardo Pepi made his MLS debut for Dallas (7-6-4), entering the game in the 84th minute.
FC Dallas has three wins in its last five games. Toronto FC (5-7-4) is winless since May 4.
GALAXY 2, FC CINCINNATI 0
CINCINNATI (AP) — Emmanuel Boateng and Favio Alvarez scored in a three-minute span early in the first half to help Los Angeles beat expansion FC Cincinnati.
Boateng scored his first goal of the minute in the 12th minute, taking a pass in stride running to the left side of the box and punching a left-footed shot across his body back to the right. Favio Alvarez connected in the 15th on a shot that resulted from FC Cincinnati’s failure to clear the ball out of its own end. A pair of defenders collided trying to head the ball from the right of the box, giving Alvarez a clear shot.
The Galaxy (10-6-1) have won three of their last four. FC Cincinnati (3-12-2) was shut out for the second straight game.
RAPIDS 2, WHITECAPS 2, TIE
VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Yordy Reyna scored on a free kick in the 80th minute and Vancouver overcame an early two-goal deficit to tie Colorado.
The kick from about 19 yards was set up when defender Lalas Abubakar was called for a foul. Reyna’s strike sailed over the wall and goalkeeper Tim Howard seemed to lose sight of the ball until it was in the net.
