FRISCO, Texas, Oct. 30 (UPI) -- Substitute Eric Avila fired the ball past Real Salt Lake goalkeeper Nick Rimando in the 88th minute Saturday, delivering FC Dallas a 2-1 playoff win.

Jeff Cunningham, subbing for injured Milton Rodriguez, tied it up for Dallas with a goal shortly before halftime.

The series moves to Utah next Saturday.
