Colman and Lamah gave the FCD attack some punch it
was lacking after Fabian Castillo was sold in August and Diaz was injure in October.
The player of the game, though, was young American Kellyn Acosta with two goals. Colman grabbed the first goal on the half-hour mark and Michael Barrios completed a dominating second half by FC Dallas with the fourth goal in stoppage time.
