[MLS: Week 3] There are only three unbeaten and untied teams left in MLS, and they are all in the Eastern Conference. The Columbus Crew joined Toronto FC and Houston at 2-0-0 with a 2-1 win over the Philadelphia Union on a pair of first-half goals by Bernardo Anor, the second a golazo from more than 30 yards.

The Crew, which opened the 2014 campaign with a 3-0 win at D.C. United two weeks ago, has back-to-back victories for the first time in the club's 19-year history.

WEEK 3 GOALS: 13 in 7 games (average: 1.86).

-- FC Dallas took over the lead in the Western Conference with a 3-1 victory over Chivas USA in a match that saw all four goals scored in the last 19 minutes.

SCORELESS IN NEW ENGLAND. New England, one of the most exciting teams in MLS last season, remained scoreless in the 2014 campaign as it had to settle for a 0-0 tie with Vancouver in its home opener. The Revs, who had the benefit of fielding all their starters for the first time this season, had a 17-8 edge in shots but could only put three on frame. Their 270-minute scoreless streak is the longest to start a season.

-- Colorado got a pair of second-half penalty kicks to beat struggling Portland, 2-0, in the Rapids' home opener. The Rapids also got a late penalty kick to tie New York, 1-1, in their opening game.

-- Defending champion Sporting Kansas City needed a penalty kick to hold off the San Jose Earthquakes, 1-0, for its first win of the season.

-- Robbie Keane's goal canceled out an early Alvaro Saborio goal in the LA Galaxy's 1-1 tie at Real Salt Lake. It was the second meeting between the Western Conference giants in three weeks.
