Vela’s late goal helps LAFC to 1-1 tie with FC Dallas
FC Dallas (5-5-3), which is winless in its last five games, played a man down after Matt Hedges was shown a red card for denial of an obvious goal-scoring opportunity by Carlos Vela in the 49th minute.
Vela converted from the spot in the 80th, after having a penalty kick stopped by goalkeeper José Luis González in the 45th minute, to tie it at 1-all. Vela leads MLS with 14 goals this season.
LAFC (9-1-4), which beat FC Dallas 2-0 at home on Thursday, is unbeaten in its last six games.
