Bulls finally snatch a point [VIDEO]

[MLS WINNERS & LOSERS] The Red Bulls finally got a point and FC Dallas notched a rare home win. The Los Angeles Galaxy lost a second straight as its it was once again let down by its backline leader.


NEW YORK RED BULLS. They didn't win, but for the woeful Bulls even a tie at home is an improvement. Juan Pablo Angeles scored his fifth of the season before Fredy Montero notched his seventh later in the first half in the 1-1 tie that ended New York's five-game losing streak. The Bulls are still winless in seven games and last in the East. But perhaps the tie bought Coach Juan Carlos Osorio some more time at the helm. VIDEO

ERIC AVILA. After starting the sequence by winning the ball at midfield, the 21-year-old Southern Californian curled a 20-yard shot into the Columbus Crew goal to ignite FC Dallas' 2-1 comeback win. Kenny Cooper hit the winner with a 87th-minute penalty kick to give Dallas its second home win of the season and end the Crew's undefeated streak at nine games. It was the first time that Dallas won a game this season after conceding the first goal. VIDEO

DOMINIC KINNEAR. The Houston Dynamo coach gets to coach the MLS All-Stars in the MLS All-Star Game against Everton FC on July 29 because his team's 1-1 tie on Saturday with Real Salt Lake makes the Dynamo MLS's point leader at the season's midway point.


GREGG BERHALTER. Since joining the Los Angeles Galaxy after a long career in Europe, the 35-year-old central defender has been red-carded twice for grabbing hold of a player after being beaten and on Saturday did the same - adding a trip - to give San Jose a penalty kick. Pablo Campos, the man fouled by Berhalter, converted the sixth-minute PK and the San Jose Earthquakes went on to win, 2-1, in the Oakland. The Quakes' Ryan Johnson scored his sixth of the season before Jovan Kirosvki, with his first goal of 2009, hit the Galaxy's consolation goal. VIDEO

JAMISON OLAVE. Already carrying a yellow card, the Real Salt Lake defender still decided to interfere with Brian Ching's throw-in and earned his second yellow and an ejection. With a man-advantage for the final 32 minutes, the Houston Dynamo came back for a 1-1 tie - Ching's 89th minute goal matching Fabian Espindola's first-half strike. The draw extended Houston's unbeaten run to 11 games. VIDEO.

D.C. UNITED. After coming back to tie 3-3 at Seattle on Wednesday, D.C. United showed it hadn't shaken off its road problems when it fell 3-0 at Colorado. Omar Cummings scored twice and Colin Clark hit the Rapids' third to extend the Rapids' undefeated streak to seven games. United is first place in the East but 1-3-4 on the road. VIDEO
