FC Dallas’ Benitez Scores from Halfway
While the Dallas Cowboys were busy killing off the Night & Day curse, another local sports team had an incredible moment over the weekend. In the waning moments of FC Dallas’ come-from-behind victory over the Vancouver Whitecaps in Frisco on Saturday, the Hoops’ Jair Benitez saw Whitecaps goalkeeper David Ousted out of position and did this:
Yeah, that’s a goal from about 50 yards out. The goal sealed FC Dallas’ 3-1 win and provided a highlight-reel moment for the 34-year-old Colombian left back/winger, aided by Ousted being badly out of position. The goal reminded me of a similar one scored by David Beckham. The win aided the Hoops in their continuing quest for a playoff spot.
