ATLANTA (AP) - Miguel Almiron scored twice in the first 23 minutes and Atlanta United beat New York City FC 3-1 on Sunday night.

Almiron, a 23-year-old designated player in his first MLS season, has five goals in the last two games and all of his seven goals have come in three matches.

Almiron opened the scoring in the 16th minute. Hector Villalba’s pass led Julian Gressel on a breakaway and he fed Almiron for the finish from just inside the spot.

Moments later, Villalba blasted a right-footer into the corner of the net. Almiron gave Atlanta (5-4-3) a 3-0 lead in the 23rd, tapping a feed from Gressel into a wide-open net.

Jack Harrison scored in the 71st minute for NYCFC (6-5-2).

DYNAMO 0, FC DALLAS 0, TIE

FRISCO, Texas (AP) - Tyler Deric made four saves for his first shutout of the season to help Houston tie FC Dallas.

FC Dallas (5-2-5) outshot the Dynamo (6-5-2) 16-5 and seemingly controlled the match, but extended its winless streak to four games. Houston has just two wins in its last 30 MLS road games (2-20-9).
