    Cordell Cato scored his first goal of the season and the San Jose Earthquakes survived a full half playing a man down to beat FC Dallas 2-1 Saturday.

    San Jose (2-3-4) stretched its unbeaten streak at home to three matches despite losing winger Shea Salinas to a straight red card after a studs-up tackle on Dallas defender Zach Loyd just before halftime.

    FC Dallas (5-5-1) slid to its fourth straight loss despite a stinging 20-yard free-kick goal by Michel in the 76th minute.

    Cato burst in behind the Dallas defense to give San Jose a 1-0 lead in the 25th minute, and San Jose doubled its lead off an own goal by Dallas substitute David Texeira in the 73rd minute.
