Beckham’s 3 assists lead LA; De Rosario hits trips as DC draw 3-3 with Toronto; Chivas & Seattle win on the road

Los Angeles Galaxy 3 – FC Dallas 1 (MLS, August 6, 2011) Marvin Chavez scored in the 9th minute for Dallas, but then the Galaxy took control. Omar Gonzalez levelled with a header from a Beckham cross, Juninho put LA in front in the 62nd minute from yet another Beckham cross, and Beckham made it a trio of assists when he delivered a dead-ball for Mike Magee to head home in the final stage.

DC United 3 – Toronto FC 3 (MLS, August 6, 2011) After DC keeper Bill Hamid was ejected in the seventh minute for a brutal tackle outside his box, United rallied behind Dawyne De Rosario’s first goal twelve minutes later – a blaster from 30 yards. United’s lead lasted until seven minutes into the second half when Peri Marosevic levelled matters. De Rosario scored again after Toronto failed to clear an attack in the 64th minute. United’s second was erased only five minutes later by Julian de Guzman’s 35-yard bullet. Toronto took a late 3-2 lead in the 86th minute when Andy Iro redirected Koevermans’ shot, but Iro went from hero to zero moments later when he gave away a penalty that De Rosario converted for his hat-trick.

New England Revolution 2 – Chivas USA 3 (MLS, August 6, 2011) Alejandro Moreno scored two goals and Chivas USA extended its unbeaten streak over New England to five matches.

Philadelphia Union 1 – Houston Dynamo 1 (MLS, August 6, 2011) Jack McInerney’s first goal of the season for the Union in the 15th minute held up until the 85th minute when Geoff Cameron pulled the Dynamo level.

Sporting Kansas City 1 – Seattle Sounders 2 (MLS, August 6, 2011) Sporting looked like they would extend their 14 match unbeaten streak when Kei Kamara put them ahead after 20 minutes, but when Omar Bravo received a straight red card just before the hour mark, Seattle were back in the contest. With time ticking away it seemed like Sporting would hold on for the win, before injury time goals to Mauro Rosales and Lamar Neagle stunned the home crowd and gave the Sounders all three points.

Real Salt Lake 3 – New York Red Bulls 0 (MLS, August 6, 2011) Nat Borchers and Luis Gil each scored in the first half as Real Salt Lake ended a 200-minute scoring drought. Alvaro Saborio scored on a penalty to seal the win.

San Jose Earthquakes 1 – Portland Timbers 1 (MLS, August 6, 2011) Kenny Cooper tapped in a low cross from Jorge Perlaza to put Portland ahead in the 23rd minute, but Alan Gordon struck a powerful header from 14 yards off Steven Beitashour’s long, looping pass in the 67th minute.
