Dallas Narrowly Keeps Series Alive With 2-1 Victory Over Kansas City

September 30, 1996|Associated Press

DALLAS — Dante Washington's header went off goalkeeper Garth Lagerwey's fingertips in the 32nd minute Sunday night as the Dallas Burn beat the Kansas City Wiz, 2-1, before 10,125 to tie the best-of-three Major League Soccer series.

Game 3 of the MLS Western Conference first-round series is Wednesday night at Dallas. The Wiz won the opener, 3-2, on Thursday night in Kansas City.

The Burn took a 1-0 lead on a fifth-minute goal by Jason Kreis, who was not expected to play because of a dislocated elbow. The shot was set up by Hugo Sanchez off a centering pass from Washington before 10,125 at the Cotton Bowl.

Preki, whose 89th-minute goal won the opener for Kansas City, tied it in the 30th minute with a lob over two defenders.

Washington scored the game-winner on a pass from Lawrence Lozzano, heading it into the right corner.
