FRISCO, Texas – Second-half substitute Blas Perez scored in the 88th minute to lift FC Dallas to a 2-1 Major League Soccer victory over Toronto FC on Saturday.

Perez entered in the 70th minute for David Texeira and scored his third goal of the season when the ball fell to his feet 3 yards from the goal line.

The Panamanian rifled the shot off Toronto goalkeeper Julio Cesar’s right foot and into the net to give Dallas (5-1-1) a league-leading 16 points.

Dallas set a franchise record with 16 corners in the match, scoring its first goal from one of the set pieces in the 37th minute when Matt Hedges headed in a Michel corner.

Toronto (3-3) opened the scoring in the 21st minute when Issey Nakajima-Farran one-timed a second-chance effort past Dallas goalkeeper Chris Seitz.
