Dallas goalie Kevin Hartman finished with two saves including one in the 90th minute after Nick LaBrocca drilled a shot from 20 yards away straight at him. Hartman set the club record for shutouts in a season with 12, breaking Matt Jordan's mark set in 1999.

Chavez had a goal disallowed in the 59th minute when he was ruled offside.

Dallas' Ricardo Villar almost scored in the 76th when he curled a shot from 15 yards away forcing Chivas goalkeeper Dan Kennedy to make a diving save to his right side. Kennedy finished with three saves.

The temperature at kickoff was 102 degrees-so hot that the teams took a brief water break in the 35th minute.
