Akindele, Orlando City beat FC Dallas 2-0

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) Tesho Akindele scored against his former team in the 13th minute and Orlando City held on to beat FC Dallas 2-0 on Saturday night.

Defender Ruan put in the leg work to get Akindele open. Ruan penetrated from the touchline into the middle of the attacking the third and sent in a through ball that allowed Akindele to directly challenge the goalkeeper with a one-timer.

Carlos Ascues secured the victory with a second-half stoppage-time goal, finishing Sacha Kljestan's flick pass from close range. It was Ascues' first goal with Orlando City (8-11-5).

Brian Rowe had two saves for his sixth shutout of the season.

FC Dallas dropped to 9-9-6.
