CHESTER, Pa. (AP) — Tesho Akindele and Ryan Hollingshead scored second-half goals to give early-season pole-sitter FC Dallas a 2-0 win over 10-man Philadelphia on Saturday.

FC Dallas (3-0-0) is the only Major League Soccer team with maximum points after its first three matches.

Akindele forced a defensive turnover in the 49th minute, gathered his deflection, and slid in a breakaway goal for a 1-0 lead. Hollingshead rolled in a shot from distance through traffic in the 59th minute.

Philadelphia (0-1-2) played the entire second half with 10 men after Zach Pfeffer was given a red card in the 42nd minute for throwing an elbow during a challenge with Mauro Diaz.

The Union has never beaten FC Dallas in eight all-time matches, going 0-4-4.

The game was originally scheduled for Friday, but MLS postponed it due to poor weather conditions.
