[MLS REWIND: Week 21] Sporting Kansas City won the battle of conference leaders when Ike Opara, a replacement for Matt Besler, who is away on Gold Cup duty, scored seven minutes into stoppage time to give it a 2-1 win at Real Salt that moved it to within one point of Real Salt Lake for the lead in the Supporters' Shield race.

Goals: 19/10 GP (avg.: 1.90)
Video: Weekend Timeline

-- Missing Robbie Keane, who is injured, and Landon Donovan, who is also away at the Gold Cup, the LA Galaxy got goals from homegrown youngsters Jose Villarreal and Gyasi Zardes to beat Vancouver, 2-1, and climb three spots into third place in the Western Conference. Camilo had scored his MLS-high 13th goal of the season to give the 'Caps the early lead.

-- The Colorado Rapids extended their unbeaten streak to five games when they held the Seattle Sounders to a 1-1 tie before almost 40,000 fans at CenturyLink Field. Drew Moor put Colorado ahead in the 60th minute after Andrew Weber, playing in place of injured Michael Gspurning, failed to get hold of a Nick LaBrocca's corner kick, but rookie all-star DeAndre Yedlin equalized four minutes later with his first MLS goal.

-- Jose Goncalves and Diego Fagundez scored in stoppage time to give New England a 2-0 win at Columbus that dropped the Crew into eighth place in the Eastern Conference. It was the Revs' first stoppage-time game-winner since a Taylor Twellman goal gave them a 3-2 win over Dallas in 2005.

-- Montreal's 0-0 tie with FC Dallas drew 20,801 spectators, the biggest crowd ever at Stade Saputo.
