MOST COMMENTED

[MLS SCHEDULE: Week 30]The San Jose Earthquakes scored their ninth goal in stoppage time to earn a 3-3 tie with FC Dallas. Steven Lenhart's goal was his second of the game for Quakes, who came back from 2-1 and 3-2 down to deprive FC Dallas of a chance to take over fifth place in the Western Conference.

-- Graham Zusi scored two goals as first-place Sporting Kansas City extended its lead and became the first team to clinch a playoff berth in the Eastern Conference with a 2-0 win over the Chicago Fire.

-- The New York Red Bulls got a goal and three assists from Thierry Henry to beat Toronto FC, 4-1, and move into a tie for second place with Chicago.

-- The Seattle Sounders clinched a playoff berth in the Western Conference with a 0-0 tie at the Vancouver Whitecaps.

-- First Omar Gonzalez, now A.J. DelaGarza. The other former Maryland Terrapin in the Los Angeles Galaxy's central defense has been injured. DelaGarza went down in the Galaxy's 1-1 tie at the Colorado Rapids with a knee injury. The Galaxy will know in a few days the extent of the injury, but it looked serious.

    I can't believe how terrible and one sided the refereeing was during the SKC vs Chicago match, I'm happy it help NYRB's but I'd rather not see ref's like this allowed to ref games!!!
