MLS Review: Lamah hat-trick leads Dallas, NYC claim late win

Roland Lamah inspired FC Dallas to a huge win in MLS, while New York City left it late on Saturday.

The Belgian opened the scoring in the eighth minute, tapping in a cross from Michael Barrios at the back post.

Lamah doubled the lead midway through the half, finishing calmly after receiving a pass from Maximiliano Urruti.

Just after the half-hour mark, he had his hat-trick after being played in behind by Carlos Gruezo.
