Kevin Molino scored twice, Emanuel Reynoso had a goal and two assists, and Minnesota United beat FC Dallas 3-0 on Sunday night in the regular-season finale for both teams.

Minnesota will be the No. 4 seed in the Western Conference and will host a first-round playoff game.

Molino's eighth goal of the season opened the scoring in the 17th minute. Robin Lod stepped in front of a sloppy pass by Dallas' Ryan Hollingshead and tapped it to Reynoso, who played a one-touch pass to Molino for the finish.

Minnesota (9-5-7) has won three of its last four games and is unbeaten in its last eight, dating to a 2-1 loss to Columbus on Sept. 23.

The 24-year-old Reynoso scored his first career MLS goal in the 47th minute. Lod played a roller to Reynoso at the top of the area, where he blasted a left-footer into the net.

Molino capped the scoring with a side-netter in the 79th. It was Molino's third multigoal game of the season.

Dallas (9-6-7) had won three in a row.
