It is the fourth straight loss for Dallas, which is 1-6-1 over its last eight
The Rapids now move to within a point of Dallas in the Western Conference
standings thanks to a Drew Moor goal midway through the first half.
In the 26th minute, a corner kick from Sanna Nyassi found Moor, who slipped
past his defender to head home the lone goal of the game.
FC Dallas received a bit of hope to turn things around in the 74th minute when
Miguel Comminges was sent off after being issued a second yellow card, but it
failed to turn its man-advantage into an equalizer before time expired.

solidify places in the postseason.
