A stoppage-time goal from substitute Eric Avila helped FC Dallas steal a point from the visiting Columbus Crew in a 2-2 tie at Pizza Hut Park on Saturday. Jeff Cunningham opened the scoring for Dallas before Adam Moffat and Guillermo Barros Schelotto tallied for Columbus.

Cunningham’s goal came on a penalty kick after Dave Ferreira was taken down inside the area by Danny O’Rourke.

Moffat’s first goal of the year drew the game even in the 52nd minute. Steven Lenhart received a nice feed from Frankie Hejduk and sent a great pass to Moffat, who quickly knocked it into the left side of the net to tie the game.

Schelotto’s second goal of 2010 came after a penalty kick he took was stopped by Kevin Hartman in the 82nd. The Crew was awarded the kick after FCD center back George John took Chad Marshall down inside the box on a corner kick. Schelotto’s spot kick was stopped by Hartman, but the Crew forward headed the rebound into the right side of the goal to make it 2-1.

But FC Dallas was not through. After Ferreira was denied near post by Crew goalkeeper William Hesmer, the ball popped back into the midfield and appeared to strike Avila’s hand. No call was made by the referees, and Avila struck a low shot that caromed off the far post and into the net for the equalizer.


* Guillermo Barros Schelotto’s goal was the 26th of his MLS career and Adam Moffat’s was his fourth.

* Danny O’Rourke was assessed a red card in the late moments, following the controversial non-call and tying goal, and will be suspended for the Crew’s next game on April 24 against Real Salt Lake.
