HARRISON, N.J. (AP) — Thierry Henry scored his first two goals of the Major League Soccer season and assisted on one of Kenny Cooper's pair Sunday to lead the New York Red Bulls to their first win of the season, 4-1 over the Colorado Rapids.
The 34-year-old Henry, who had three goals in seven games during a winter loan to Arsenal, scored in the third and 54th minutes. He assisted on a sixth-minute goal by Cooper, who also got a goal in the 89th off a pass from Roy Miller.
Henry has five goals in four MLS games against Colorado.
Omar Cummings scored the Rapids' goal in the 77th, preventing rookie Ryan Meara from getting his first shutout.
New York (1-2), which drew 21,024, was coming off road losses at Dallas and Salt Lake. Colorado (2-1) began with wins over Columbus and Philadelphia.
SPORTING KANSAS CITY 2, FC DALLAS 1
KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — Kei Kamara atoned for a missed penalty kick with a goal in the 88th minute, leading Sporting Kansas City to the victory.
Graham Zusi had two assists for Sporting (3-0), giving him an MLS-leading four in three games.
Dallas keeper Kevin Hartman saved Kamara's penalty in the 51st minute, but Kamara gave Sporting the win when he slashed into the area and fired home Chance Myers' cross. Zusi's pass to Myers set up the play.
Dallas (1-1-1) became the first team to score on Sporting this season on Ricardo Villar's free kick in the 25th minute.
Aurelien Collin equalized with a header in first-half stoppage time, off a free kick by Zusi. It was the 700th goal in club history for Sporting.
