From combined dispatches

Crew 2, Wizards 1

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Adam Moffat and Robbie Rogers scored to give Columbus its best-ever start to a season with a win over Kansas City last night.

Moffat’s goal came in the fourth minute, when Columbus forward Guillermo Barros Schelotto floated a free kick to the far side of the penalty area. Crew defender Chad Marshall headed the ball back into Moffat’s path, and he jumped over a defender to net his second goal of the season.

Kansas City’s Claudio Lopez scored on a penalty kick in the 79th minute, after referee Mark Geiger ruled Danny O’Rourke had fouled Wizards forward Scott Sealy as the two fought for the ball inside the penalty area.

Fire 3, Revolution 0

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — John Thorrington and Stephen King scored goals in the second half and Chicago beat New England.

Chicago took the lead on Chris Rolfe’s goal in the 29th minute. Thorrington scored his third goal in the past two matches in the 50th minute, with a drive to the lower right corner past New England goalie Matt Reis. King, who came on in the second half, scored in the 76th minute.

Chivas USA 0, Dynamo 0

HOUSTON — Chivas USA’s Brad Guzan had five saves and Houston’s Pat Onstad made three as the two teams played to a scoreless tie.

Before the game, Houston received its championship rings for winning the MLS Cup. The two teams, who entered the game first and second in the league in fouls, tied the MLS season-high with eight yellow cards and one red card.

Galaxy 2, Real Salt Lake 2

SALT LAKE CITY — David Beckham scored twice for his first two-goal game in MLS while leading Los Angeles to a tie against Real Salt Lake.

Beckham thrilled the fans with two of his trademark long, curving kicks in the first half after Los Angeles had fallen behind 2-0. He nearly had a third but was upended by a defender before he could get off a shot into an open net early in the second half.
