Kevin Hartman got his 100th career shutout and Martin Chavez scored in the 69th minute to give FC Dallas a 1-0 win over the Revolution last night in Frisco, Texas.
Hartman, 37, in his 15th MLS season, made just two saves for his league-leading seventh shutout of the season. Real Salt Lake’s Nick Rimando is second all time with 79.
The win extended Dallas’s unbeaten streak to nine (6-0-3), six of which have been shutouts, and solidified its second-place position in the Western Conference standings.
The Revolution lost their third straight game and are winless in six road games, with two ties.
After Dallas failed to convert numerous chances in the first hour-plus, Chavez finally broke through with an outstanding individual effort.
After receiving a lead ball from Fabian Castillo, Chavez charged down the right side and managed to slip around Revolution defender A.J. Soares about a yard from the end line.
Approaching the right post at a sharp angle, Chavez slotted a low shot between goalkeeper Matt Reis and the goalpost for his first goal of the season.
