[MLS REWIND: Week 27] Sporting Kansas City and the New York Red Bulls both won on Saturday by 2-1 scores to move into a tie for first place in the Eastern Conference with the Montreal Impact, which had to settle for a scoreless draw at Philadelphia. Wins by Los Angeles and Seattle moved them into second and third place in the Western Conference.

Goals: 17/7 GP (avg.: 2.43)
Video: Weekend Timeline

Sporting KC got great goals from Benny Feilhaber and Graham Zusi to beat Colorado, 2-1, and end the Rapids' unbeaten streak at nine games.

Two days after they had to be separated, New York Red Bulls coach Mike Petke benched star Thierry Henry. The Frenchman came on in the second half, but by then the Red Bulls had scored the two goals they needed to beat D.C. United, 2-1.

The Galaxy got two goals from Robbie Keane in its 3-0 win over San Jose before a sellout crowd of 27,000 -- the Galaxy's first of the season -- in the Cali Clasico. Keane also delivered an assist on Landon Donovan's goal -- the 132nd of his MLS career.

A sellout crowd was also announced in Columbus, where the Crew fell to Seattle, 1-0, in a game delayed two hours by bad weather.

The Sounders, who played with 10 men for the last 83 minutes after Leo Gonzalez was red carded, won for the fifth time in last six games on a header by Eddie Johnson, who celebrated by running around gesturing "show-me-the-money" with his fingers.
