Goals from Sebastián Driussi and Danny Hoesen helped Austin FC erase a two-goal deficit and earn a 2-2 draw against FC Dallas, in front of a sold-out crowd of 20,738 at Q2 Stadium on Saturday night.
Chances were hard to come by in the first half. Maxi Urruti nearly scored from outside the penalty area with a shot that went inches wide in the 17th minute, and Julio Cascante made a tremendous last-ditch tackle to deny Dallas’ Alan Velasco at the half-hour mark.
Arriola put the visitors ahead in the 58th minute, reacting quickest to a rebound in the area. Servania doubled the lead 10 minutes later, but Driussi pulled Austin back into the match in short order, beating two defenders and the goalkeeper with a clever low finish from Moussa Djitté’s assist.
Hoesen then completed the comeback in the 85th minute, powering in a header from a pinpoint Nick Lima cross to ensure the sides shared the spoils on the night.
