2. MLS: Fire slows but can't stop D.C. United
July 24th, 2006 5:21PM



A 1-1 tie at Chicago ended D.C. United's win streak at six games but its undefeated run extended to 14 games thanks to Alecko Eskandarian's 74th minute goal while Chicago played a man down (yellow-red to Logan Pause, 51st minute). Nate Jaqua scored his fifth goal of the season for the Fire.

Peter Vagenas' first goal of the season earned the Los Angeles Galaxy a 1-1 tie with Columbus, whose winless streak stretched to 10 games. Eddie Gaven's diving header ended the Galaxy's shutdown streak at 521 minutes but the Galaxy remains undefeated in six games.

Mike Magee's goal gave the New York Red Bulls a 1-0 win over Kansas City, whose losing streak hit seven games in interim coach Brian Bliss' first game since taking over for Bob Gansler. The Red Bulls' win streak hit three games.

The Houston Dynamo's unbeaten streak reached 10 games with a 1-1 tie against New England, which got on the scoreboard thanks to a Craig Waibel own goal. Stuart Holden scored his first goal of the season, a low strike from 18 yards, to equalize for the Dynamo.

Abe Thompson scored his first goal of the season in the third-minute of stoppage time to give FC Dallas a 1-0 win over Real Salt Lake. The goal was Dallas' 500th in club history, joining Los Angeles and D.C. United as the third team to hit that milestone.
