Scoring flurry helps Montreal upset New York

Marco Di Vaio got his first MLS goal early in the second half and Davy Arnaud scored two minutes later as homestanding Montreal upset New York, 3-1.

Sanna Nyassi also scored for the Impact (8-13-3), which had lost its first two meetings with the Red Bulls.

Thierry Henry scored his 11th of the season in the 57th minute for New York (11-6-5).

Di Vaio got the Impact on the scoreboard in the 48th minute, scoring in his eighth MLS match, and Arnaud made it 2-0 in the 50th.

Nyassi sealed the win with his fourth goal in the 75th minute.

Chivas USA 1, at Timbers 0: Danny Califf’s first goal of the season was all Chivas needed to send Portland (5-13-4) to its fifth straight defeat.

Califf, an early-season acquisition from the Philadelphia Union, broke a scoreless deadlock – which saw Chivas (8-8-5) on its back foot much of the night – with a set-piece header in the 68th minute.

Galaxy 1, at FC Dallas 0: Mike Magee scored in the 62nd minute to lift short-handed Los Angeles.

The defending MLS champion Galaxy (10-10-3), playing without stars Landon Donovan and David Beckham, extended its unbeaten streak to 4-0-1. Los Angeles has lost just twice in its last 10 matches (7-2-1).

Galaxy goalkeeper Josh Saunders needed to make just one save for his fourth shutout of the year.

Dallas (5-11-7) has split its last four games (2-2-0) since a franchise-record 13-game winless skid (0-7-6) dropped it to last place in the Western Conference.

Donovan sat out after he was suspended for the first time in his MLS career for yellow-card accumulation, while Beckham had not rejoined the team after participating in the Opening Ceremonies at the London Olympics on Friday night.

Dynamo 2, at Toronto FC 0: Calen Carr and Brian Ching both scored as Houston beat Toronto for its fourth straight victory.

The Dynamo (10-5-7) moved to second place in the Eastern Conference and extended its unbeaten streak to 5-0-2, having allowed just one goal in the last seven matches.

Toronto (5-12-4) snapped a three-game winning streak.

Crew 2, Sporting KC 1: Jairo Arietta scored two goals in his MLS debut, leading Columbus past Sporting KC.

Arietta, who joined the Crew (8-7-4) at midseason from Costa Rican club Deportivo Saprissa, scored in the 17th and 34th minutes. Columbus finished the match a man down after Cole Grossman was issued a straight red card in second-half stoppage time for a hard foul on Graham Zusi.

Sporting (11-7-4) saw its home winless streak extended to four matches.

Kei Kamara scored on a header off Graham Zusi’s free kick in the 8th minute, ending Kansas City’s scoring drought at home at 333 minutes.

At Earthquakes 1, Fire 1: Steven Lenhart returned from a four-game injury absence to score in the eighth minute of second-half stoppage time and lift San Jose into a draw with Chicago.

The goal neutralized a 37th-minute strike from Chicago midfielder Chris Rolfe.
