FC Dallas finally clinches

[MLS SPOTLIGHT] FC Dallas, the 2010 MLS runner-up, ended a four-game losing streak with a 2-1 win at Chicago to clinch a berth in the 2011 playoffs. The loss all but extinguished the Fire's postseason hopes. As for D.C. United, the games it has carried in hand most of the season are doing it no good as it dropped its third straight, a 2-1 decision at Vancouver.

Brazilian Jackson and Colombian Daniel Cruz scored for FCD, which keeps the Brimstone Cup for the 10th straight year. It had not scored a goal in more than a month.

Jackson's goal -- a roller Fire goalkeeper Sean Johnson failed to stop to his left -- was followed by Cruz's first MLS goal -- a bicycle kick over his right shoulder.

The Fire had already gone down to 10 men following Pavel Pardo's ejection when Argentine Sebastian Grazzini scored on a 18-yard blast in the 86th minute.

The Whitecaps won their second straight game at B.C. Place Stadium thanks to goals by Camilo -- his 12th of the season -- and Long Tan -- the first for the Chinese forward. The goals were scored in the first minute of each half.

Brandon McDonald had D.C. United's goal in the 58th minute.
