FC Dallas (13-11-7) lost it's fourth straight, all by shutouts - extending its scoreless streak to 360 minutes, four shy of the franchise mark set in 2003.

Before Moor's goal, Colorado had several shots go wide of both posts. Kouke Kimura broke free and sailed a shot over the crossbar in the 6th minute. FC Dallas goalkeeper Kevin Hartman had to flick away Sanna Nyassi's from 25 yards out in the 23rd.

Hartman couldn't stop Moor's header from in front of the crease off a corner kick by Nyassi.

Pickens had to make a diving save of a shot by Marvin Chavez in the 40th minute and he batted aside Ricardo Villar's low shot in the 42nd.

Pablo Mastroeni was stopped by Hartman in the 51st and Nyassi missed a wide-open net in the 52nd.

FC Dallas had its first scoring chance of the second half in the 61st minute as Shea's header was blocked by Pickens.

Colorado defender Miguel Cumminges received a red card and was ejected in the 74th minute after upending Zach Loyd at midfield. Dallas could not capitalize on the advantage the rest of the way.

Loyd kicked the ball over the crossbar in the 90th minute with Pickens out of position to make the save.
