SANDY, Utah (AP) — Olmes Garcia scored two goals in the final 10 minutes to help Real Salt Lake beat the Galaxy at home for the first time in more than two years, with 3-1 victory over Los Angeles on Saturday night.
Khari Stephenson scored late in the first half for RSL (8-5-3) and Landon Donovan scored an equalizer before halftime for Los Angeles (6-6-2) but it was not enough to help LA avoid its sixth loss in its past eight games across all competitions.
Garcia headed home a cross from Javier Morales in the 84th minute to put RSL ahead, and then the two hooked up again two minutes into stoppage time. Morales sent a through ball into the center of the box. Garcia latched onto the pass and buried it inside the left post to assure RSL of the three points.
TIMBERS 2, FIRE 2
BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. (AP) — Substitute Daniel Paladini scored on a 26-yard free kick in the 82nd minute to lift Chicago into the draw with Portland.
Chicago (3-7-3, 12 points) also got an open-net goal from Mike Magee in the 68th minute in coming back from a 2-0 second-half deficit to extend its unbeaten run to three games. Portland (5-1-8, 23 points) stretched its unbeaten streak to 12 games, not having lost since a 2-1 decision to Montreal on March 9.
Timbers forward Diego Valeri scored in the 34th minute and Ben Zemanski added a goal in the 58th.
SOUNDERS 3, WHITECAPS 2
SEATTLE — Lamar Neagle ran onto a pass from Obafemi Martins and scored in the 81st minute, lifting Seattle over Vancouver.
Neagle's goal was his fifth of the season.
The Sounders (6-4-3, 21 points) took a 1-0 lead in the ninth minute on a goal by Andy Rose before Camilo Sanvezzo scored a pair of first-half goals for the Whitecaps (4-5-4, 16 points).
Servando Carrasco converted a penalty kick in the 70th minute, lifting the Sounders into a 2-2 tie.
Sanvezzo's goals in the 10th minute and the 26th were both assisted by Russell Teibert.
UNITED 0, REVOLUTION 0
FOXBORO, Mass. (AP) — New England and D.C. United battled to a scoreless draw in which Revolution goalkeeper Bobby Shuttleworth had to make just one save for his seventh shutout of the season.
New England (5-4-5) is unbeaten through its last five (3-0-2) matches and has lost just once in its last eight (4-1-3).
D.C. United (1-10-3) was shutout for the third straight match, for the eighth time overall this season and is winless in its last 12 (0-9-3) matches.
New England, which suffered three one-goal losses to D.C. United last season, saw its unscored upon streak stretch to 395 minutes before 14,163 at Gillette Stadium.
