Carson, CA (Sports Network) - David Ferreira and Ramon Nunez came off the bench in the second half to spark FC Dallas to a 3-1 win over Chivas USA at the StubHub Center on Wednesday.

The result brings an end to FCD's 11-match winless streak, and is even more impressive considering that the visitors played the final 10 minutes a man down.

Chivas took a 1-0 lead late in the first half when Bryan de la Fuente scored his first career MLS goal by bringing down a chip from Marco Delgado inside the penalty area and beating goalkeeper Raul Fernandez.

Dallas then brought on both Ferreira and Nunez in the second half, and the result was three goals in the final 20 minutes.

The equalizer was started by Ferreira, who played Fabian Castillo down the wing, where he dropped the ball back to Blas Perez, whose shot took a deflection on its way past goalkeeper Dan Kennedy.

It looked like Dallas would be happy to get a point when Jackson was sent off after picking up a second yellow card for an elbow on Chivas defender Carlos Bocanegra in the 81st minute.

However, Nunez played Ferreira into the area on the left five minutes later, allowing him to chip the ball past Kennedy and watch it settle inside the far post.

With Chivas pressing for an equalizer, Nunez got behind the defense and lashed a shot into the upper right corner to seal the win.
