FRISCO, Texas – Seattle’s Xavier Arreaga and Brad Smith scored own goals, helping FC Dallas end a six-game winless streak with a 2-1 victory over the Sounders on Saturday night.

Arreaga’s deflection of Ryan Hollingshead’s header gave FC Dallas (6-6-3) a 1-0 lead in the 33rd minute. Smith put Michael Barrios’ cross into the back of the net in the 38th to double FC Dallas’ lead.

The start was Arreaga’s first for Seattle. Joevin Jones made his first appearance for the Sounders since his 2017 move to German club SV Darmstadt 98.

Raul Ruidiaz scored in the 65th minute for the Sounders (7-3-5), netting a 20-yard shot with a deflection off defender Matt Hedges.
