COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Tim Cahill scored on a rebound moments after a penalty kick save by Luis Robles and New York defeated Columbus 1-0 on Saturday.
Cahill headed a rebound in the 80th minute after Andy Gruenebaum made the initial save off a shot by Jonathan Steele.
His third goal of the season came seven minutes after Robles went to his right to stop Federico Higuain’s penalty after Eddie Gaven was fouled by Brandon Barklage.
New York (5-4-2) has won three straight.
Columbus (3-3-3) had its 12-game home unbeaten streak ended.
IMPACT 2, EARTHQUAKES 2
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Sam Cronin scored in the first minute of second-half injury time to give San Jose a draw against Montreal.
Justin Mapp scored in the 24th and 47th minute to give Montreal a 2-0 lead, but San Jose rookie Adam Jahn got one back in the 59th.
Cronin took one touch off a knockdown header from Chris Wondolowski and lashed a shot home from 20 yards for his first goal of the season.
Montreal (5-1-2) extended its unbeaten streak to three matches.
San Jose (2-3-5) has tied four of the past five matches and is winless in six straight games.
SOUNDERS 2, UNION 2
CHESTER, Pa. (AP) — Mauro Rosales scored a goal in the 64th minute to give Seattle a draw on the road against Philadelphia.
Danny Cruz scored twice for the Union (3-3-3), who remained undefeated at home.
After Rosales got the equalizer for Seattle (1-3-3), the match got chippy. Seattle’s Lamar Neagle and Philadelphia’s Sheanon Williams were shown red cards in the 85th minute following a scuffle.
Five minutes later, Seattle’s DeAndre Yedlin was sent off at the beginning of stoppage time.
REAL SALT LAKE 2, WHITECAPS 0
SANDY, Utah (AP) — Luis Gil ended a scoring drought with a header just minutes into the second half and Javier Morales also scored to lead Real Salt Lake.
Salt Lake (4-4-2) played without its top three forwards as Alvaro Saborio, Robbie Findley and Olmes Garcia all were sidelined because of injuries. It forced head coach Jason Kreis to use his ninth different starting lineup this season.
The Whitecaps (2-4-3) extended their MLS winless streak to seven games. Vancouver has not won since a 2-1 home victory over Columbus on March 9. The Whitecaps have given up at least two goals in five of those seven contests.
RAPIDS 1, TORONTO FC 0
COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (AP) — Edson Buddle scored in the 86th minute to lift Colorado.
After finding the ball just outside the crease when Toronto defender Logan Emory gave it up, Buddle easily scored into the back of the net for his first goal of the season.
Colorado (3-4-3) has scored four goals in its past five games, though the Rapids have been outscored 9-8 overall this season.
Rapids goalkeeper Clint Irwin outplayed Toronto’s Joseph Bendik to improve to 3-2-2 with three shutouts since taking over for the injured Matt Pickens.
Toronto (1-4-4) has lost consecutive games after tying four straight, and dropped to 0-3-1 on road.
