FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Roland Lamah scored two goals and Mauro Diaz had three assists to help FC Dallas beat the Los Angeles Galaxy 3-2 on Saturday.

Maximiliano Urruti rifled a right-footer inside the near post past a diving David Bingham to give FC Dallas (4-1-4) a 1-0 lead in the 28th minute. Diaz tapped it to Urruti, who dribbled around a defender and finished from well outside the area.

Lamah doubled the advantage in the 44th, side-netting a feed from Diaz. Lamah, who perfectly timed his run, slipped behind the defense and put away a through-ball, which split two defenders, from Diaz.

Ola Kamara scored in the 47th minute to trim the Galaxy's deficit to 2-1, but Lamah headed home a high cross from Diaz in the 52nd before L.A.'s Emmanuel Boateng capped the scoring in the 83rd minute.

Los Angeles (3-6-1) has lost four consecutive games.

FC Dallas' Reto Ziegler got his second yellow card for unsporting behavior and left the game in the 73rd.

CREW 3, FIRE 0

Niko Hansen started a counter in the 50th minute with a takeaway behind midfield and went all the way to about 5 yards from goal to set up Zardes, who finished with a left-footed stab to double the lead.

Zardes added his league-leading eighth goal of the season in the 70th minute. Mike Grella dummied Ricardo Clark's cross to give Zardes space to finish from a yard behind the spot.
