Jader Obrian scored two goals to help FC Dallas tie New York City FC 3-3 on Tuesday night.

Dallas (6-10-9) has only lost one of its last six away matches -- with three draws. New York City (10-8-5) had its seven-game home winning streak snapped. The seven-match run was a club record.

Dallas' only lead came in the fourth minute when Obrian took advantage of a defensive mistake and easily sent it into the back of the net from close range.

Dallas tied it at 2 in the 63rd when Jesus Ferreira ran past the defense for Ricardo Pepi's through ball and sent goalkeeper Sean Johnson diving the wrong way.
