Fabian Castillo, Je-Vaughn Watson and Michel scored in a 15-minute span of the second half Saturday night to keep FC Dallas unbeaten with a 3-1 victory over Chivas USA.

Dallas (2-0-1) sits atop the Western Conference with an MLS-best seven points.

Castillo opened the scoring in the 71st minute off a Mauro Diaz set piece, and Watson outran defender Tony Lochhead on a long ball and then juked goalkeeper Ian Kennedy for the eventual game-winner in the 78th minute.

Chivas forward Erick Torres grabbed his third goal of the season in the 81st minute to put the pressure back on the hosts, but Michel, a second-half substitute, slotted in a low, left-footed free kick that deflected off the Chivas wall in the 86th.

Chivas (1-1-1) lost for the first time this season.

Dallas midfielder Adam Moffat came out in the 11th minute with a left-leg injury but was able to walk off on his own, and Chivas’ Oswaldo Minda was replaced with an apparent right-leg injury during first-half stoppage time. Both walked off the field.

Andrew Jacobson, Moffat’s substitution, was carted off on a stretcher in the 67th minute and replaced after getting tangled with a Chivas player. He gripped his left ankle while lying on the ground, kicking the ground in pain with his right foot.
