&vid&catCode[MLS NAMES & NUMBERS] Los Angeles is no longer winless, but the defending champ Columbus failed once again to get its first victory of the year. Jamie Moreno added to his all-time league scoring record in a D.C. United win. New England keeper Matt Reis committed the biggest keeper blunder of the season so far. Chicago remained the league's only undefeated team, but couldn't notch its third win ...

MATT REIS. The veteran New England keeper let a 25-yard shot from Houston's Stuart Holden roll between his legs for the first goal in a 2-0 win by the Dynamo, which got its second from Brian Ching. VIDEO

1. Los Angeles celebrated its first win of the season, a 1-0 home triumph over struggling New York, to up its record to 1-1-4. Landon Donovan provided the goal from a penalty kick, which was awarded after Donovan slammed a cross into Seth Stammler's arm. Linesman Frank Anderson made the PK call although it looked like Stammler could hardly avoid the shot hitting his arm. Donovan's goal was his fourth of the season for a team that has seven so far. VIDEO. (PK call at 2:25 mark)

JAIME MORENO scored both goals -- the second on a sublime chip -- in D.C. United's 2-1 win over FC Dallas, upping his record as all-time MLS leading scorer to 124. VIDEO

0. Defending champ Columbus, after a 1-1 tie at Toronto, still has no wins this year (0-2-5) and remains winless (0-4-4) in all-time games against Toronto. Emmanuel Ekpo gave the Crew a 1-0 lead after dribbling through two Toronto defenders and past keeper Stefan Frei, but 10 minutes late Chad Barrett headed home from close range a Sam Cronin cross. VIDEO

MARCO PAPPA. Chicago's Guatemalan midfielder scored his third goal of the season -- a shot from 17 yards nicely set up by Cuauhtemoc Blanco -- to give the Fire a fleeting lead against Seattle, which was playing a man down after Fredy Montero's red card for throwing an elbow. But the Sounders came back to tie, 1-1, thanks to a Tyrone Marshall goal after a Freddie Ljungberg corner kick. Pappa's goal ended Seattle keeper Kasey Keller's 456-minute shutout streak and ensured Chicago remained the league's only undefeated team, with a 2-0-5 record. VIDEO

19. Chivas USA remains the league's top team after winning, 1-0, at San Jose on a Justin Braun goal. Chivas USA now has 19 points from a 6-1-1 record. Its six wins and five shutouts are also league highs. VIDEO

JAMISON OLAVE. A week after thumping New England, 6-0, Real Salt Lake fell back to earth with a 2-0 loss at Colorado, which benefited from Jamison Olave's red card for a studs-up tackle on Conor Casey. Nick LaBrocca and Kosuke Kimura scored their first goals of the season either side of Olave's red card. VIDEO
