[DISNEY PRO CLASSIC] Playing up a man up for 86 minutes, FC Dallas defeated USL PRO champion Orlando City, 4-0, at the Disney Pro Soccer Classic on Tuesday. Former U.S. U-20 Moises Orozco broke a 1-1 tie in the 85th minute and Joao Plata added an insurance goal as Toronto FC beat FK Hacken of Sweden, 3-1, in the other game.

The Orlando-Dallas game turned in the fourth minute when  Orlando City goalkeeper Sean Kelley was red carded for a foul on Panamanian Blas Perez in the area. David Ferreira scored on the ensuing penalty, and FCD went on to get goals by Fabian Castillo, Perez and Andrew Wiedeman.

Orozco, who played for TFC academy director Thomas Rongen with the U.S. U-20s and has been in the youth system at Mexico's Tigres, is on trial with TFC. He broke open the 1-1 tie with Hacken with a curling shot into the corner.

Orozco, Plata and Dutchman Nick Soolsma, who assisted on both late goals, were the difference for TFC off the bench.

Ryan Johnson, back from national team duty with Jamaica, had the first Toronto goal.
