COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Atiba Harris, Michael Barrios and David Texeira scored as FC Dallas beat the Columbus Crew 3–0 on Sunday night to move into third place in Major League Soccer’s Western Conference.
Harris opened the scoring for FC Dallas by firing in a Texeira headed pass in the 27th minute. Texeira redirected Kellyn Acosta’s corner kick with a header pass to Harris.
Barrios doubled the lead in the 69th minute with an end-to-end counterattack, and Texeira added his own two minutes later.
Columbus lost for the first time in five games and was held scoreless at home for the first time this season while playing without MLS scoring leader Kei Kamara (18 goals) because of international service.
With a victory, the Crew would have moved past the New York Red Bulls into a first-place tie with D.C. United.
