The highest regular-season attendance since the inaugural season's 17,406 was 15,822 in 2002. Last weekend's biggest crowd was the 66,237 at the Beckham game at New York Red Bull, but games at Toronto, Columbus, Salt Lake and Houston had announced attendance of more than 18,000. ... Luciano Emilio's goal against Columbus upped his league-leading total to 14. ... New York's five goals against L.A. upped its goal-per-game production to a league-leading 1.70.
