Weekend MLS wrap: Frustration in Seattle, heartbreak in Philly, boredom in N.Y.

Posted on 12 July 2010 by ASN Staff

On the last weekend of World Cup action, Major League Soccer had a full schedule of games on tap. There were several results of importance, perhaps none bigger than the Landon Donovan-less LA Galaxy loss at the New England Revolution. In Seattle, the young Sounders provided a spark but it was 19-year-old Miguel Montano’s red card that changed the balance of the game and allowed FC Dallas to steal a late 1-1 draw from Seattle. Nick Schiffler has that report, complete with player ratings. A full photo gallery is available as well.

In front of a crowd of 17,158 at the second-ever game at PPL Park, two counter attacks led to two San Jose goals locking up three vital away points for the Earthquakes. In an otherwise engaging and entertaining performance, the Philadelphia Union defense on counter-attacks were best summed up by Piotr Nowak as “professionally naive”. Breton Bonnette reports from Chester, Pa., with Union player ratings supplied by San Toma.

The New York Red Bulls and DC United played a drab scoreless stalemate at Red Bull Arena on Saturday night, in a match that was short on highlights of any kind and from either team. The Red Bulls extended their MLS unbeaten streak to five and captured the Atlantic Cup – the regular season series between the two sides – for the first time since 2003. Short match report and full photo gallery.
