SPORTING KANSAS CITY 1, TIMBERS 0

Peterson flicked a header, off a free kick by Benny Feilhaber, to the bottom-right corner.

Alec Kann made a diving stop on Darlington Nagbe - Portland’s only shot on goal - in the 10th.

The Timbers (7-8-8) had chances in stoppage time.

TORONTO FC 3, CREW 0

TORONTO (AP) - Tsubasa Endoh and Sebastian Giovinco score in the first half and Jozy Altidore added a late goal in Toronto FC’s victory over Columbus.

Endoh opened the scoring for Toronto (9-7-6) in the eighth minute when a shot from Giovinco deflected off his back, which provided a spin that threw off Columbus goalkeeper Steve Clark.

Giovinco scored in the 24th minute. He passed to Canadian midfielder Jay Chapman, continued his run, got the ball back from Chapman and hit the ball with the outside of his right foot past Clark’s outstretched right hand. Altidore, who came off the bench in the second half, had his 87th-minute shot deflected by Columbus defender Michael Parkhurst for his first goal of the season.

The victory gives Toronto the Trillium Cup, an in-season competition between the two teams that acknowledges their geographical proximity, after TFC and Columbus (3-9-10) had drawn their previous two meetings this season.

FC DALLAS 2, WHITECAPS 0

FRISCO, Texas (AP) - Kellyn Acosta and Maximiliano Urruti scored to help FC Dallas beat Vancouver.

Acosta buried a right-footer in the bottom-right corner off a feed from Michael Barrios in the 56th minute. Three minutes later, Urruti slipped behind the defense and beat goalkeeper David Ousted from the corner of the 6-yard box for his sixth goal of the season.

Dallas’ Chris Seitz made one save for his seventh shutout of the season, tied with Luis Robles of the New York Red Bulls for most in MLS. FC Dallas improved to 13-6-5, and Vancouver dropped to 8-9-6.

Morales made it 2-1 six minutes later with just enough loft on his chip shot to get past the leaping and outstretched hand of goalkeeper Andre Blake.

Roland Alberg opened the scoring for the Union (8-8-6) with a penalty kick in the 44th minute. C.J. Sapong drew the penalty against Aaron Maund, and Alberg drilled it past RSL’s Nick Rimando.

SEATTLE (AP) - Cristian Roldan scored his second goal of the season in the 49th minute to give Seattle the lead, and a defensive miscue allowed Los Angeles’ Sebastian Lleget to tie it in the 78th minute.

Seattle (6-12-3) was in position to get the victory in the debut of interim head coach Brian Schmetzer, taking over this week after the club and Sigi Schmid parted ways.
