HARRISON, N.J. (AP) - Benny Feilhaber and Dominic Dwyer scored to help Sporting Kansas City beat the New York Red Bulls 2-0 on Saturday night.

Goalkeeper Tim Melia had six saves - including a diving stop of a penalty kick by Bradley Wright-Phillips - for his MLS-leading third shutout for Sporting (4-1-0).

Dwyer beat two New York defenders on the dribble, then slipped a pass to a streaking Graham Zusi, who crossed to Feilhaber for a far-post goal in the 17th minute.

Dwyer spun around a defender and put away a left-footer, off a throw-in from Saal Abdul-Salaam, from just outside the 6-yard box to make it 2-0 in the 60th.

New York (1-4-0) outshot Sporting 22-7, including 10 by Wright-Phillips - the highest game total in MLS this season.

The Red Bulls, who won the Supporters’ Shield last season, have been shutout in each of their four losses.


WASHINGTON (AP) - Fabian Espindola and Alvaro Saborio each scored twice and D.C. United beat Vancouver to snap a six-game winless streak dating to last season.

Espindola opened the scoring with a putback of Chris Rolfe’s saved shot in the 38th minute.

Steve Birnbaum’s header of Taylor Kemp’s corner kick bounced off the bar and Espindola put it away from close range to make it 2-0 about nine minutes into the second half. Saborio replaced Espindola in the 79th and added two goals, both on feeds from Luciano Acosta, for D.C. United (1-2-3).

Vancouver (2-3-1) was outshot 24-7, including 13-1 in shots on target.


MONTREAL (AP) - Hassoun Camara scored his first goal of the season to help Montreal beat Columbus.

Camara scored on a header off Lucas Ontivero’s corner kick in the 48th minute. Kyle Bekker added a goal in the 86th minute for Montreal (3-2-0), and Evan Bush made one save for his second shutout of the season.

Columbus (0-3-2) was shut out for the second time this season.


FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) - Sebastian Giovinco tied it for Toronto in the 58th minute, and Clint Irwin had seven saves to hold off New England.

Jozy Altidore slipped behind the defense on a breakaway and dropped the ball to a streaking Giovinco for the tying goal for Toronto (1-2-2). Kelyn Rowe scored for New England (1-1-4) in the 14th.
