Jeff Cunningham scored in the final minute of stoppage time last night to give FC Dallas a 2-2 tie with the Revolution at Frisco, Texas, extending its club-record unbeaten streak to 16 games.

Shalrie Joseph scored his first goal of the season to put New England (7-14-4) ahead in the fifth minute, and Ilija Stolica made it 2-0 in the 66th minute with a shot from the top-right corner of the goalie box.

FC Dallas (10-2-13) scored twice in the final 10 minutes and has eight wins and eight ties during the streak, which is two shy of the MLS season record set by the Columbus Crew in 2004.

David Ferreira’s penalty kick in the 80th minute pulled FC Dallas within 2-1. Ferreira assisted on Cunningham’s tying goal.

Revolution coach Steve Nicol made two adjustments after the team’s 3-0 loss at Colorado last Saturday. Darrius Barnes took over for Emmanuel Osei in central defense and Kenny Mansally started at left midfield, which pushed Chris Tierney to left back in place of Seth Sinovic.

The move paid off immediately, with the Revolution pouncing for an early strike by Joseph. New England limited FC Dallas to one shot in the first half.

The draw snapped the Revolution’s two-game losing streak, but New England is 1-10-2 on the road this season.

The Revolution return to Foxborough Saturday to play Columbus at 7:30 p.m.

Wizards 4, Dynamo 3 — At Kansas City, Kan., Josh Wolff came on as a late sub and scored on a diving header seven minutes into second-half stoppage time as Kansas City overcame a two-goal deficit to top Houston.

Wolff, who entered in the 85th minute, connected on a cross from Michael Harrington to complete the Wizards’ first winning rally from two goals down since a 4-3 victory over New England May 26, 2007.

Kansas City (9-9-6) has lost just one of its past 10 and beat Houston at home for the first time in five meetings. Houston (6-14-5) lost its fourth straight.
