[MLS PRESEASON: Desert Diamond Cup]Yes, it rains (and even occasionally snows) in Tucson, and it came down hard Saturday. But it cleared up by the final of the FC Tucson Desert Diamond Cup that went to the Chicago Fire with a 2-0 win over guest team Guadalajara's sub-20s.

Ecuadoran Juan Luis Anangono scored in the 14th minute and Quincy Amarikwa added an insurance goal in stoppage time for the Fire, which finished preseason with a 7-1-0 record. Mike Magee, who had missed the first week and a half of the Tucson camp, came off the bench to make his first appearance at the Desert Diamond Cup.

The final day of play at the Kino Sports Complex began with a 1-1 tie between Real Salt Lake and Chivas USA, which finished the preseason unbeaten with a 4-0-4 record. Erick Torres opened the scoring for Chivas USA in the 10th minute, but Real Salt Lake equalized on a goal by Alvaro Saborio in the 70th minute. The game was the first Luis Gilplayed for RSL at the Desert Diamond Cup. Trialists Dani Fragoso and Leandro Barrera again started for Chivas USA.

New England and Colorado played to a 2-2 tie in the second game. Charlie Davies made his first appearance of the preseason after overcoming a calf injury. Five New England starters were held out: Andrew Farrell (leg), Jose Goncalves (quadriceps), Lee Nguyen (groin), Saer Sene (ankle) and Chris Tierney (hamstring). Trialist Shalrie Joseph(knee) was also unavailable. Like Gil for RSL, Shane O'Neill had spent January with the U.S. national team for the first time but made his first appearance in Tucson on Saturday for the Rapids.

Cato gives Quakes win over Portmore United

[MLS PRESEASON: Rose City Invitational] The San Jose Earthquakes wrapped up the Rose City Invitational with a 1-0 win over Jamaica's Portmore United at Portland's Providence Park on Saturday.

The Quakes are off next week because of their participation in the Concacaf Champions League, so they will play one more preseason game Wednesday against USL PRO affiliate Sacramento Republic FC at CSU Stanislaus’ Warrior Stadium in Turlock.
