[MLS: Week 5] Michael Bradley scored his first goal since returning to MLS to lead Toronto FC to a 2-0 win at Columbus, ending the Crew's perfect start to the season. Maurice Edu also scored his first goal since returning from Europe in Philadelphia's 2-2 tie at Chicago. The Saturday results left only FC Dallas (4-0-1) and Real Salt Lake (2-0-3) as unbeaten teams.

Week 5 Scoring: 28 goals/8 games (average: 3.50).
Season Scoring: 118 goals/42 games (average: 2.81).

-- Despite being outshot 16-8, FC Dallas beat Houston, 4-1, to retain El Capitan. The game changed when Dynamo defender David Horst was sent off in the 60th minute with the score tied 1-1. Mauro Diaz then fed Je-Vaughn Watson for two goals and Giles Barnes added an own goal.

-- The rematch between MLS Cup 2013 finalists Sporting Kansas City and Real Salt Lake ended in a scoreless draw at Sporting Park.
