There was a scary situation for Dallas in the 74th minute when George John went down with an ankle injury and immediately began signaling for the medical staff. He was stretchered off, and the extent of his injury was not immediately known.
Dallas kept throwing numbers forward knowing that they basically needed a win to stay alive in the playoff race. They thought the found the winner in the 90th minute minute, but Blas Perez was ruled offside after putting the ball into the net.
The home side would not be denied and, with five minutes of stoppage time thanks to John's injury, found their goal. De Guzman brought down a clearance with his chest and volleyed home the winner past Knighton.
