MLS Weekend Review

A look at this weekends action in Major League Soccer.

LA 1 Galaxy Columbus 1
Lewis scored his first goal of the season in second-half stoppage time Sunday to help the Galaxy salvage a 1-1 tie with the Columbus Crew. The Galaxy (1-1-7) extended their unbeaten streak to seven games – their longest stretch without a loss in two years.

Guillermo Barros Schelotto scored his fifth goal of the season for the Crew (1-2-6), who lengthened their own undefeated run to five games but have yet to win on the road.

Chicago 2 Toronto 0
Second-half goals from Chris Rolfe and Brian McBride kept the Chicago Fire the only unbeaten team in MLS with a 2-0 win over Toronto FC on Saturday. The victory ended the Fire’s (3-0-6) run of five straight ties.

Toronto FC (3-3-4) had its first loss under interim coach Chris Cummins.

D.C. United 2, Chivas USA 2
D.C. United once again left it late, with two goals in the last 15 minutes against the toughest defense in MLS to get a draw with Chivas.

Luciano Emilio scored in the 77th minute when he re-directed a shot from Santino Quaranta off the left post and into the back of the net. Quaranta ripped a shot from 25 yards out to tie it in the 85th.

Maykel Galindo opened the scoring in the 25th minute in his first start since May 11, 2008. D.C. (3-1-6) is unbeaten in six games. Chivas (7-1-2) has allowed five goals all season.

Wizards 2, Real Salt Lake 0
Josh Wolff scored twice to help Kansas City upset Real Salt Lake (3-5-1) and give RSL their first home loss of the season.

Jack Jewsbury scored on a breakaway in the 20th minute and Kansas City (4-4-2), which ended a three-game winless streak, extended its lead in the 67th minute when a Michael Harrington cross was met by Wolff. Wolff, who has scored in three straight games, has six this season to tie for the most in MLS with Chicago’s Brian McBride.

Real Salt Lake (3-5-1) nearly tied the game, but Kyle Beckerman’s shot in the 47th minute hit off the post. Javier Morales’ follow-up shot was deflected wide.

Dynamo 1, Red Bulls 1
Houston conceded its first goal in more than a month when John Wolyniec scored in the 88th minute for the 10-man New York Red Bulls. Substitute Chris Wondolowski had put Houston (3-2-3) up in the 78th minute after getting a nice pass from Brad Davis.

But New York (2-5-3) responded in the 88th. Wolyniec received a great pass from Dane Richards deep inside the box, turned and drilled his first goal of the season. Though the Dynamo hadn’t allowed a goal in 491 minutes since a 1-0 setback to D.C. United on April 4, their unbeaten streak reached five games.

Revolution 1, Rapids 1
A Steve Ralston penalty in the 18th minute help the Revs earn a draw at home against Colorado.

New England (2-2-4) has scored just two goals in its last four matches. The Revolution had five starters including striker Taylor Twellman and goalkeeper Matt Reis out due to injuries.

Forward Conor Casey put the Rapids (3-2-3) ahead in the third minute. Casey’s goal was his fifth of the season putting him just behind McBride and Wolff.

Sounders 1, FC Dallas 1
Andre Rocha scored in the third minute of first-half stoppage time for FC Dallas as Dallas and Seattle shared the points. The Sounders (4-2-3) extended their unbeaten streak to four games while last-place Dallas (1-6-2) failed to score more than one goal for the seventh time in eight matches this season.
