YOUNG MIDFIELDERS SHINE. Playing its eighth game of the month and without injured attackers Carlos Ruiz, Roberto Mina and Ronnie O'Brien, FC Dallas still managed an emphatic win, thanks much to the midfied play of Arturo Alvarez, 21, and Ramon Nunez, 20. Nunez scored twice and assisted on Kenny Cooper's goal in a 4-1 win over Colorado in front of 18,329 fans in Pizza Hut Park. The game was part of a doubleheader that included Mexico's Club America beating England's Everton on PKs after a 1-1 tie.

FAIR PLAY. There were no cards and referee Alex Prus called only 14 fouls during FC Dallas' 4-1 win over Colorado

DE RED
. Two minutes after scoring the penalty kick that earned the Houston Dynamo a 1-1 tie with the Red Bulls, Dwayne De Rosario received a red card for hitting Red Bull Danny O'Rourke, who received his second yellow after the scuffle.

STREAK STOP. The league's worst team ended its best team's undefeated streak. Real Salt Lake, with a pair of penalty kicks in the 90th minute and five minutes into stoppage time by Jeff Cunningham, beat D.C. United 2-1, ending a 14-game undefeated streak. Jaime Moreno's 104th career goal had given United the lead in the 36th minute. United now has two losses on the season.

NO-WIN SITUATION. With a 0-0 tie, Chicago and Columbus helped each other extend their winless streaks to four and 11, respectively.

WOLFF BITE. U.S. World Cup player Josh Wolff scored his third goal of the season to give Kansas City an early 1-0 lead over New England, but fellow Germany 2006 player Clint Dempsey set up Steve Ralston for the equalizer in the fifth minute of stoppage time. Kansas City did snap a seven-game losing streak.

HIGH AND LOW. The announced attendance in Salt Lake City was 20,027; Colorado's 1-0 win over Houston on Wednesday drew 4,220 fans in Denver.
