[MLS GOLEADORES] Sporting Kansas City scored as many goals in Sunday's win over FC Dallas as it had in its previous seven games. For the latest on the Golden Boot race and video of extraordinary strikes by Sporting's Graham Zusi and Vancouver's Eric Hassli. ...

* Coming off two scoreless ties and having scored just four goals in its previous seven games, Kansas City thumped FC Dallas 4-1 at Pizza Hut Park. Luke Sassano and Aurelien Collin each scored their first MLS goals while Graham Zusi scored twice and notched an assist. Zusi, a second-round draft pick out of the University of Maryland in 2009, beat FC Dallas keeper Kevin Hartman with a 45-yard free kick.

* Vancouver's Eric Hassli, the Frenchman who already has three red cards this season, upped his scoring total to six with a penalty-kick strike and a magnificent volley from outside the penalty area that beat Seattle keeper Kasey Keller to the far post in a 2-2 tie.

* San Jose's Steven Lenhart scored a hat trick and added an assist in a 4-2 win over D.C. United. The fourth-year player's highest scoring season so far came when he notched six goals for Columbus in 2010. He has four goals this season.

* New York Red Bull Thierry Henry scored his seventh goal of the season in a 2-1 win over New England on Friday. Henry trails league-leader Landon Donovan, who is on Gold Cup duty with the USA, by one goal.
