[MLS REWIND: Week 19] Yes, it can be said: MLS produced plenty of fireworks on the day before the Fourth of July.

Goals: 19/5 GP (avg.: 3.80)
Video: Midweek Timeline

Real Salt Lake and Montreal rallied to tie after falling behind, and the Fire spotted San Jose a goal before scoring three of its own to win. Two games featured two goals in as many minutes. The five games played Wednesday generated 19 goals, and only one team – lowly D.C. United – failed to score.

RSL REBOUNDS. TWICE. The Philadelphia Union swaggered into Rio Tinto Stadium and twice took the lead, only to concede a pair of equalizers, including a Javier Morales penalty kick deep into stoppage time.

Leading 1-0 on a Sebastien Le Toux goal in the 13th minute, Philly gave up a tying goal to Luis Gil in the 75th minute, then took back the lead a minute later when Conor Casey fired a shot into the bottom corner. A handball call against Raymond Gaddis proffered Morales the spot kick he converted.

GOALS DAY UP NORTH. Two days after celebrating Canada’s independence, two of its teams shared six goals at BMO Field, with Montreal rallying from a 3-1 deficit to get a tie.

Andres Romero scored after just 23 seconds, the fifth-quickest goal in league history, shooting the visiting Impact into the lead, after which the home team took over when three players scored their first league goals.

Jeremy Brockie equalized five minutes later, and in the 21st minute assisted on a go-ahead goal by Steven Caldwell, whose new contract was announced by the club Tuesday. In just another three minutes, TFC led, 3-1, on a Darren O’Dea goal provided by Luis Silva.

But the Impact scored twice in less than two minutes to get the point. Marco Di Vaio’s equalizer and league-leading 11th goal of the season followed a strike by Hassoun Camara. However, the defensive gaps exploited by Colorado in a 4-3 defeat last weekend continue to plague Montreal.

CAMILO LEADS ‘CAPS. The third Canadian representative, Vancouver, visited a tough place to play and also secured a point. Camilo’s goal just before halftime matched one by Sporting Kansas City defender Aurelien Collin and Graham Zusi smashed a shot off the goalpost in the 75th minute as the ‘Caps held on for a 1-1 tie at Sporting Park.

Fatigue might have affected both teams. While they generated 35 shots, only five were on target.

GOONIES GROUNDED. The Quakes got another goal from Alan Gordon, his third in the last two games, and shut out Mike Magee, and still lost to the Fire, 3-2. Magee -- who had scored in his last six matches -- assisted on Chris Rolfe’s winner in the 84th minute after Dilly Duka had scored Chicago’s first goal and set up the second for Patrick Nyarko.
