Josh Wolff and Clint Mathis, heroes of the U.S. win over Costa Rica in World Cup qualifying, both scored sensational goals in their first matches since returning to MLS. Wolff scored on a free kick to give Chicago a 1-0 win over Tampa Bay. The game marked Fire captain Peter Nowak's first appearance of the season. Mathis scored with a blast past Dallas keeper Matt Jordan after a long run for the deciding goal in the MetroStars' 3-2 win over Dallas. For the second straight game, the Metros had one of their Colombians ejected. Alex Comas went off for an accumulation of yellow cards. Cobi Jones, who was suspended from the USA-Costa Rica, had two excellent goals in the Los Angeles Galaxy's 3-2 win at Colorado. Miami improved its record to an MLS best 4-1-0 with a 1-0 over winless New England thanks to Alex Pineda Chacon's MLS-high fifth goal of the season. The match attracted 14,381 fans, the fourth highest crowd in Fusion history. San Jose held Kansas City to a 0-0 tie before 14,521 fans at Arrowhead Stadium in Landon Donovan's first start for the Quakes. San Jose has not scored against Kansas City in 506 minutes.
