FCD held onto the lead until the second half when Villafana knocked the ball into the net after Dallas goalkeeper Kevin Hartman had gotten a piece of a cross from Miller Bolanos.
The single point meant Dallas (9-12-11, 38 points) could only move to within four points of Vancouver for the fifth and final Western Conference playoff spot with two games remaining.
Chivas improved to 7-17-8.
