HARRISON, N.J. (AP) — Fredy Montero came off the bench in the second half to score his fifth goal of the season, giving the Seattle Sounders a 2-2 tie with the New York Red Bulls on Sunday.
Montero took a feed from Brad Evans in the 67th minute and pushed it past goalkeeper Bill Gaudette, who was making his debut after being acquired from the Los Angeles Galaxy on Friday.
Alvaro Fernandez scored in the 16th minute to give Seattle (8-5-7) an early 1-0 lead.
Sebastien LaToux, also making his debut with the Red Bulls after coming over in a trade Friday with Vancouver, tied the game later in the first half. Joel Lindpere gave the Red Bulls (9-5-5) a brief lead in in the 61st minute with his third goal of the season.
The Red Bulls remained unbeaten at home at 5-0-3.
DYNAMO 4, D.C. UNITED 0
HOUSTON (AP) — Brad Davis and Will Bruin scored in the first half, Oscar Boniek Garcia and Brian Ching scored in the second and Houston extended its unbeaten streak to four games.
Brad Davis put the Dynamo (7-5-7, 28 points) ahead 1-0 in the 19th minute on a penalty kick that hit inside the far post. Houston earned the penalty after D.C. United goalkeeper Bill Hamid tripped Macoumba Kandji as he was going for a ball in the box. Hamid was given a red card on the play.
United's Branko Boskovic was replaced by backup goalkeeper Joe Willis after Hamid was ejected, and D.C. United (10-6-3, 33 points) played the final 71 minutes a man down.
