Check out the highlights of Sounders FC’s 4-2 home win Saturday against FC Dallas above, and I’ve collected some postgame notes below:

— FC Dallas lost for the first time since March 10, ending a nine-game unbeaten streak.
— Sounders FC has won three straight, four of five and is on a six-game unbeaten streak (3-0-3), which is tied for third best in team history.
— Sounders FC is on a 4-0-3 run in all competitions.
— Sounders FC improved to 5-1-4 head-to-head against Dallas (3-1-1 at home), with wins in four of the last five games.

— Sounders FC hasn’t been shut out in five games.
— The Sounders are 29-0-8 when scoring the game’s first goal (4-0-2 this year), the longest active unbeaten run in MLS dating to the end of 2010. The league record is 58 games set by New York.
