[MLS WINNERS & LOSERS] San Jose, New England and FC Dallas broke their various streaks of futility while the Chicago Fire lost its first game of the season. The Galaxy came up with its usual result and saw another ejection of its veteran defender. Colorado kept up its strong form thanks to its red-hot striker.

WINNERS

SAN JOSE. The Earthquakes ended a five-game losing streak by downing visiting Real Salt Lake, 2-1. Quakes newcomer Cornell Glenn scored first and Arturo Angeles scored with a 25-yard strike before Robbie Findley ended Real's 350-minute scoreless streak. VIDEO

CONOR CASEY. The Colorado striker took the league scoring lead when his two goals in a 3-2 win over New York upped his total to eight goals, moving him ahead of Landon Donovan (Los Angeles), Robbie Findley (Real Salt Lake), Guillermo Barros Schelotto (Columbus), Brian McBride (Chicago) and Josh Wolff (Kansas City). The Rapids are unbeaten in their last five games. VIDEO

NEW ENGLAND. The Revs snapped their six-game winless streak with a 2-1 win over D.C. United that was decided on Steve Ralston's 90th minute penalty kick after Taylor Twellman was fouled by Bryan Namoff.

KENNY COOPER. The FC Dallas forward started his 43rd straight regular-season game - tying the league record held by Twellman (2005-2007) and Alejandro Moreno (2007-2008) - when he lined up against Chicago. Cooper scored Dallas' third goal in a 3-0 win with a 25-yard free kick as Dallas ended a three-game road losing streak and earned its first shutout. It was Cooper's fifth goal of the season. VIDEO

LOSERS

CHICAGO. The Fire's home loss to FC Dallas ended a club record 11-game unbeaten streak to start the season. Chicago, which has yet to beat Dallas at Toyota Park since it opened in 2006, helped Dallas along with a C.J. Brown own goal and the ejection of Bakary Soumare, whose foul on Brek Shea set up Dallas' third goal.

GREGG BERHALTER. The former U.S. international was red-carded for the second time in eight games since he joined Los Angeles this season. The 35-year-old defender was ejected in the 59th minute for  yanking on uniform of a breaking-away Claudio Lopez as the Galaxy notched its ninth tie of the season, a 1-1 at home to Kansas City. The Galaxy has won just once. VIDEO

SEATTLE. The Sounders did little to impress another big home crowd (29,126) in a 1-1 tie with Columbus. Freddie Ljungberg shot wide on a penalty-kick attempt and Tyrone Marshall was ejected as the Sounders spent much of the match bickering with referee Michael Kennedy.

TORONTO. A week after downing New England, 3-1, Toronto FC went to Houston and got thumped, 3-0. Toronto's Dwayne De Rosario, who helped the Dynamo win two MLS titles, got a standing ovation before the game, but after that it was all Houston, which scored three goals within five minutes in the middle of the first half. The strikes came from Brad Davis, Kei Kamara and Stuart Holden.
