CITY TAKES LEAD IN CUP DERBY
Dallas Blanks Vaqueros 2-0
FORT WORTH---Karhim Gattaz had a goal and an assist to lead Dallas City FC to a 2-0 win over the Fort Worth Vaqueros in the first leg of the Trinity River Cup at LaGrave Field in front of 2,116 fans.
The series now heads to Dallas on June 7 where the Vaqueros will have to crawl out of the two-goal hole.
“I thought the team played well. We stuck to our game plan,” Vaqueros coach Mark Snell said. “Overall, pleased. Not many teams can dominate a team being a man down and I think we did that. I think we were a little unlucky we should have scored three or four goals.”
The Vaqueros struck the framework on two occasions after trailing 1-0 at the half. Dallas City picked up a stoppage time goal as Fort Worth was engaged in an all out offensive push for the equalizer.
Fort Worth’s Tyler Humphrey was issued a straight red card for what the referee deemed violent conduct. Humphrey committed a hard tackle in the 52nd minute and as the players were entwined the referee saw something that he felt was an ejection offense.
