[MLS REWIND: Week 10] The Houston Dynamo lost to the Los Angeles Galaxy in MLS Cup 2011 and MLS Cup 2012 and on its six previous trips overall to the Home Depot Center, but it beat the Galaxy, 1-0, Sunday night to join the New York Red Bulls, Montreal Impact and Sporting Kansas City in a four-way tie for the Eastern Conference lead. For all the weekend action ...

HALL STOPS DONOVAN. Landon Donovan beat Tally Hall from the penalty spot to give the Galaxy the go-ahead goal in MLS Cup 2012, but he shot weakly and Hally saved easily in the first half of Sunday's Galaxy-Dynamo game. Donovan had missed only three of 31 MLS regular-season penalties in his first 12 seasons in MLS, but he has already missed twice this season.

EASTERN CONFERENCE LOGJAM. The Red Bulls won their third straight game with a 1-0 win at the Columbus Crew on Tim Cahill's third goal in the last two games, while Sporting KC crushed Chivas USA, 4-0. Argentine Claudio Bieler scored twice to move into a share of the MLS scoring lead with six goals. Montreal has to settle for a 2-2 tie at San Jose as the Earthquakes got another last-minute goal -- this time from Sam Cronin -- to earn a share of the points.

KAMARA COMES HOME. Kei Kamara is headed back to Sporting KC following the completion of his loan spell at Norwich City. The Sierra Leone international played in 11 games with the Canaries, who have two games to play in the EPL. He had to return to Sporting KC by May 6 -- the close of MLS's primary transfer window -- or he could not have returned until the opening of the secondary window on July 9. Norwich City has not closed the door on seeking a permanent transfer nor will Sporting KC rule out seeking out other bidders for the popular winger.

ROUGH STUFF AT PPL PARK. The Philadelphia Union and Seattle Sounders played to a 2-2 tie in a incident-filled match marred by three late red cards and Union protests that a handball by Seattle defender Leo Gonzalez in the penalty area in stoppage time went unpunished. The Union's Sheanon Williams and Sounder Lamar Neagle were sent off, though Williams said he and Neagle were innocent. "The referee said we head-butted each other," Williams told the Philadelphia Inquirer, "but I never head-butted [Neagle] and he never head-butted me." Seattle's DeAndre Yedlin followed Williams and Neagle to the showers with a red card -- the first of his young career -- for a hard tackle from behind on Michael Farfan.
