Newcastle Jets 0 – Sydney FC 0 (A-League, September 13, 2008)
New York Red Bulls 2 – Real Salt Lake 1 (MLS, September 13, 2008) The Utah club went ahead in the 38th minute when Armenian striker Yura Movsisyan ran on goal and directed a deft shot past the goalkeeper. But Juan Pablo Angel and Dave van den Bergh both scored in the second half for New York, who move six points inside the playoff cutoff.
DC United 2 – FC Dallas 2 (MLS, September 13, 2008)
Toronto FC 1 – Columbus Crew 1 (MLS, September 13, 2008) Welsh midfielder Carl Robinson scored a rare goal to put Toronto ahead in the sixth minute. Crew forward Pat Noonan equalised in the 40th minute as he cut in from the right past some shoddy defending to score.
KC Wizards 2 – LA Galaxy 0 (MLS, September 13, 2008) The league’s glamor club remains rooted to the bottom of the Western Conference despite being the MLS’ highest scorers. A change of coach has not helped L.A.’s performance, with former U.S. national team coach Bruce Arena winless from four games. The return of a jet-lagged David Beckham from World Cup duty with England also had little benefit. Two goals in less than two minutes from U.S. internationals Josh Wolff and Davy Arnaud midway through the second half secured the points for Kansas City, which revived its playoff hopes by moving within four points of the cutoff.
