[MLS NAMES & NUMBERS/VIDEO] Coach Bruce Arena finally celebrated a win with the Los Angeles Galaxy thanks to an explosive performance by Landon Donovan. Real Salt Lake finally fell at home, and Jeff Cunningham added to his plus-100 career scoring tally. For the weekend's MLS highlights. ...

LANDON DONOVAN scored a hat trick and upped his league-leading scoring total to 19 goals in the Los Angeles Galaxy's 5-2 win over D.C. United. The win ended the Galaxy's 12-game winless streak and gave Bruce Arena his win since taking the helm a month ago. VIDEO.

103. Jeff Cunningham scored twice for FC Dallas, which he joined in early August from Toronto, in a 4-1 win at Chicago that ended five-game winless streak for FC Dallas. Chicago had not given up more than two goals in a game prior to Sunday's defeat, in which Aaron Pitchkolan (on a Cunningham assist) and Bruno Guarda also scored for FC Dallas. Brian McBride headed home Chicago's lone goal in game-end stoppage time. Cunningham is fourth on the all-time MLS scorers list, behind Jaime Moreno (122), Ante Razov (114) and Jason Kreis (108). VIDEO

KEVIN SOUTER, a 24-year-old Scotsman who played college ball at the NAIA's Graceland University, scored his first MLS goal in Kansas City's 2-0 win over Toronto that keeps the Wizards in playoff contention. Souter, who played for the PDL's Des Moines Menace last summer, joined the Wizards after impressing in an open tryout. Souter had played 11 minutes of MLS ball before coming on as a 76th minute sub on Saturday and scoring in the 79th minute on assists from Josh Wolff and Roger Espinoza. Jack Jewsbury opened the scoring with a 63rd minute penalty kick.

26,391. In front of the third biggest home crowd in franchise history, Real Salt Lake lost its first home game of the season, 1-0, to Chivas USA, which moved into second place in the West. Alecko Eskandarian's 72nd minute goal - a gift from Real's Nat Borchers and keeper Nick Rimando, who collided and let the ball roll to Eskandarian for an open-goal sitter - was all Chivas needed. VIDEO

KENNY MANSALLY, New England's 19-year-old Gambian striker, scored his third goal of the season - a 50th minute equalizer - to earn the Revs a 1-1 tie at Colorado. Mansally's goal answered Colin Clark's first-half strike for the Rapids.
