MLS Regular Season
KANSAS CITY, Kan.- Sporting KC sumó su cuarto partido sin ganar en casa al caer ante el Columbus Crew 2-1. Después de perder la oportunidad de obtener de nueva cuenta el liderato de la Conferencia del Este, Sporting KC se dice preparado y con la capacidad de retomar el camino de la victoria.
“Jugamos bien, movemos bien el balón, lo único que nos hace falta es conseguir los números”, explicó el DT del equipo Peter Vermes.
COMMERCE CITY, Colo. – Osvaldo Alonso’s 65th-minute volley handed the Seattle Sounders a 2-1 win over the Colorado Rapids on Saturday night at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park, sending the Rapids (7-14-1) to their sixth consecutive loss, which ties a franchise record for futility.
With the game tied 1-1 well into the second half, Eddie Johnson’s inch-perfect cross found an unmarked Alonso running into the box, and the Cuban midfielder one-timed a volley into the corner for a sensational first goal of the season and the decisive tally for the Sounders (9-5-7).
FRISCO, Texas — Playing without two of their three big stars, the LA Galaxy produced a fine defensive display and rode a second-half Mike Magee goal to a 1-0 win over FC Dallas on Saturday night in front of a record crowd of 22,565 at FC Dallas Stadium.
Magee, who hadn’t appeared in a match since July 4, scored his fifth goal of the season, and third in his last five matches.
KANSAS CITY, Kan. – It didn’t take Jairo Arrieta long to make an impact with the Columbus Crew – and to extend Sporting Kansas City’s home woes.
Arrieta, who joined the Crew at midseason from Costa Rican club Deportivo Saprissa, scored his first two MLS goals to lead Columbus to a 2-1 victory on Saturday night at Livestrong Sporting Park.
MONTREAL – Eight games into his MLS career, Marco Di Vaio has gotten the monkey off his back.
The Italian striker opened his acount with the first of the Montreal Impact's three goals in a 3-1 win over the New York Red Bulls on Saturday night in front of a sold-out crowd of 19,441 at Stade Saputo.
Montreal scored two quick goals at the start of the second half, including Di Vaio’s first and Davy Arnaud’s fourth, before Thierry Henry pushed his 2012 total to 11 goals in the 57th minute. Sanna Nyassi added the insurance tally in the 75th minute.
D.C. United anunció el sábado que el club ha fichado al mediocampista brasilero Raphael Augusto a préstamo del Fluminense de Río de Janeiro.

Augusto estará disponible una vez finalizado su certificado de transferencia internacional y su visa.
