Walker Zimmerman sends FC Dallas into Western Conference Finals

New, 1 comment

Entering the last few minutes of the Western Conference semi-final, Seattle seemingly sealed their fate in earning a spot in the Conference final because of Chad Marshall's goal in the 89th minute. But not quite.

Enter Walker Zimmerman. Lawrenceville, GA born Zimmerman, after entering the game in the 84 minute, flipped the script and came up with the late game heroics in stoppage time to provide the equalizer to send FC Dallas into extra time.

But that's not all! After a scoreless additional 30 minutes FC Dallas and Seattle Sounders went into penalty kicks to find a winner. After FC Dallas goalkeeper saved two penalties, former GSA defender Walker Zimmerman stepped up and scored the penalty to seal the deal and earn a spot in the Western Conference final.

That stare though.
