FRISCO, Texas (AP) Fabian Castillo scored in the 62nd minute and FC Dallas snapped an eight-game winless streak with a 3-2 win over the Colorado Rapids on Saturday night.

Dallas (6-7-3) had failed to score more than one goal in a game during its skid.

Castillo took possession of the ball near midfield and dribbled around Rapids defender Drew Moor before curling a left-footed volley from 15 yards and into the right corner of the net.

Colorado's Jose Mari tied it 2-all in the 52nd minute when he angled a header into the left corner of the net from inside of 6 yards. Dillon Powers set up the goal with a corner kick from the left side.

Zach Loyd scored in the second minute of first-half stoppage time to give Dallas a 2-1 lead.

Loyd's shot from 19 yards grazed the right leg of Colorado defender Chris Klute, causing Rapids goalkeeper Clint Irwin to misplay the shot and the ball bounced off Irwin's right hand and into the left corner of the net. It was Loyd's first goal since July 4, 2012 - a span of 51 games.

Dallas' Andres Escobar tied the game 1-1 in the 33rd minute after Benitez's free kick bounced off of Escobar's back and into the left corner of the net.

Deshorn Brown chipped a shot from the top of the penalty box over the head of Dallas defender Walker Zimmerman to give the Rapids (6-5-4) a 1-0 lead in the 25th minute.
