Wednesday's MLS Capsules
Thursday, August 30, 2012
WASHINGTON (AP) — Wilman Conde scored in the 88th minute to lift the New York Red Bulls to a 2-2 draw against D.C. United on Wednesday night.
Joel Lindpere also scored for New York (13-7-7) on a night that, until very late, looked to be remembered for Dwayne De Rosario's 100th career MLS goal.
De Rosario scored in the 68th minute to pass the milestone and put United ahead 2-1. Nick DeLeon also scored for D.C. (12-9-5), which tied a club record set in 2007 by extending its home unbeaten streak to 13.
New York stretched its unbeaten streak to four matches as it closed to within a point of first-place Sporting Kansas City.
CHIVAS USA 3, REVOLUTION 3
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Shalrie Joseph scored two first-half goals in his return to Gillette Stadium and helped lead Chivas USA to a draw with New England.
Joseph, sent by New England to Chivas USA (7-10-7) on Aug. 1., scored in the 23rd and 45th minutes against the team he played nearly 10 seasons (2003-12) for and Miller Bolanos scored in the 47th minute.
Saer Sene had two scores and the Revolution (6-14-6) benefited from an own goal in the 11th minute. The draw extended New England's winless streak to a franchise record-tying nine matches (0-7-2).
CREW 2, UNION 1
CHESTER, Pa. (AP) — Eddie Gaven scored near the end of five minutes of stoppage time, lifting short-handed Columbus past Philadelphia.
Josh Williams got his first MLS goal in the 41st minute for Columbus (11-8-6), which won its third staight and extended its unbeaten streak to 3-0-2.
Carlos Valdes scored in the 29th minute as Philadelphia (7-13-4) dropped to 0-3-2 in its last five matches. The Union haven't won since beating New England on July 29.
Gaven scored from about five yards out to give the Crew the win.
