HARRISON, N.J. (AP) - Bradley Wright-Phillips scored 2 minutes into second-half injury time and the New York Red Bulls beat D.C. United 1-0 on Sunday to advance to the Eastern Conference finals.

The Red Bulls, who won the first leg of the two-game series 1-0 last week in Washington, advanced on aggregate goals 2-0, marking the second straight year they have beaten their I-95 rivals in the semifinals.

New York will face the Columbus Crew in another two-game series.


COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Kei Kamara scored his second goal in the 111th minute to lift Columbus past Montreal, after they split the two legs 3-3.

Ethan Finlay tied the series score at 3 and gave Columbus a 2-1 lead in the 77th minute.

Kamara opened the scoring in the fourth minute, and Dilly Duka tied it in the 40th.


VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - Fanendo Adi scored off a feed from Diego Valeri in the 31st minute and Diego Chara added the capper in second-half stoppage time, sending Portland past Vancouver and to the MLS Western Conference finals for the second time in franchise history.

Portland will face FC Dallas in the Western Conference finals, with the first leg Nov. 22 in Portland.
