CARSON, Calif. (AP) — Jorge Villafana's goal in the 69th minute snapped a 600-minute scoreless streak and also dealt a blow to FC Dallas' playoff hopes as Chivas USA forged a 1-1 draw Sunday.

With the point earned, FC Dallas sits four points behind Vancouver for the fifth and final Western Conference playoff spot, and each team has two games remaining. Vancouver would secure the playoff spot with a victory or an FC Dallas loss.

Villafana's goal tied the game and ended the second longest drought in league history.

FC Dallas Blas Perez opened the scoring in the eighth minute when Perez finished off a rebound from a shot by David Ferreira. Meanwhile, Villafana's tally came off a feed from Miller Bolanos.
