[MLS NAMES & NUMBERS] Houston, FC Dallas and New York finally won, leaving defending champ Columbus, which had a bye, and Los Angeles, the league's only winless teams. The Chicago Fire is undefeated after five games for the first time in club history. Jaime Moreno hit another milestone. Chivas USA remained undefeated by handing Seattle its second straight loss.

PAT ONSTAD. Houston's 41-year-old Canadian goalkeeper saved Colorado's Conor Casey penalty kick, pawing the shot upward, where it bounced off the crossbar and to Terry Cooke. Onstad got to his feet in time to block Cooke's header and preserve the 1-0 lead created by Brian Ching's first-half header, which broke a 234 minutes Houston scoring drought. The win was Houston's first of the year. VIDEO

100. Jaime Moreno became the first player in MLS history to hit the century mark in goals and assists when he set up Ben Olsen's stoppage-time header, which earned D.C. United a 1-1 tie with New England. The Revs got their goal from Shalrie Joseph in the 50th minute. VIDEO

KENNY COOPER. The FC Dallas striker shares the league scoring lead with Chicago's Brian McBride and Colorado's Conor Casey with four goals. Like McBride, Cooper scored twice on the weekend. His goals led FC Dallas to its first win over the season, a 3-2 victory over Toronto FC. VIDEO

2. Former teammates on the U.S. national team -- Josh Wolff assisted Brian McBride on the first goal in the historic 2-1 second-round win over Mexico at the 2002 World Cup - Wolff and McBride scored twice apiece in Kansas City's 2-2 tie with Chicago. Kansas City's Argentine Claudio Lopez set up both Wolff goals while McBride was set up by Colombian Wilman Conde and Mexican Cuauhtemoc Blanco. VIDEO

JUAN PABLO ANGEL. After the Red Bulls' Colombian striker's salary was upped to nearly $1.8 million he played a lackluster four games before finally scoring his first goal of 2009, the second strike in New York's first win of the year - a 2-0 home victory over Real Salt Lake. VIDEO

15,862. That was the biggest crowd of the weekend, in Oakland, to where San Jose moved its game from its Santa Clara Buck Shaw Stadium home (capacity: 10,300) to accommodate a bigger crowd before the Galaxy's David Beckham decided to stay in Milan. The Quakes fans instead were offered a postgame firework show after a 1-1 tie. Brazilian Pablo Campos opened the scoring for the Quakes in the fifth minute. Bryan Jordan equalized in the 76th minute with a diving header after a feed from Landon Donovan, who notched his third assist of the season. VIDEO

JAMES RILEY. The Seattle defender opened the scoring with an own goal - rifling home a low cross from Chivas USA's Jonathan Bornstein - in the 34th minute. Second-half substitute Chukwudi Chijindu, a University of Connecticut  product, scored late in the match for his first career MLS goal. The 22-year-old rookie hails from Southern California. Undefeated Chivas USA leads the league with 13 points, three better than East leader Chicago. VIDEO
