The man better known as "Kobra" scored in just the fourth minute, sliding home a cross with a nifty finish for what would ultimately stand as the only goal of the three-period scrimmage.
FCD nearly doubled the advantage three times, first in the 30th minute off a feed from Kobra that set up Santiago Mosquera with a look on goal, but the shot was saved by the Austin goalkeeper.
The home side's final big chance of the match came on an 84th-minute free kick from Ema Twumasi, who just missed what would have been a gorgeous curling golazo.
The result moves FC Dallas to 3-2-0 through five preseason matches. The club will take the field for its next exhibition match on Wednesday at Toyota Field against another USL outfit in San Antonio FC.
