Road teams run wild on weekend of fireworks

[MLS: Week 10] A good weekend for road teams continued on Sunday, with Chivas USA stunning the Rapids, 3-1, as snow flurries fell at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park, and Real Salt Lake maintaining its unbeaten start to the season by beating the Dynamo, 5-2, at Houston. The outbursts pushed the weekend total to 35 goals in nine games.

A run of eight winless games ended for Chivas USA, for which Marvin Chavez scored two goals just days after the Rapids traded him upon his request. He scored twice within nine minutes after Erick Torres’ goal ended nearly an hour of goalless play. Another former Rapid, Martin Rivero, earned the assist on Torres’ eighth goal of the season.

RSL exploited a man advantage at Houston, which lost Servando Carrasco to a red card in the 27th minute and squandered a penalty kick when Nick Rimando thwarted Giles Barnes nine minutes later during an incredible first half that ended with RSL ahead, 3-1.

Four road teams – Chicago, D.C. United, Sporting Kansas City, and Vancouver – had won on Saturday. The only home team to win, San Jose, prevailed over FC Dallas, 2-1, despite playing the entire second half a man down after the ejection of midfielder Shea Salinas shortly before halftime.

The victories of Chivas USA and RSL and the Galaxy’s 1-1 tie at Portland gave road teams a 6-2-1 mark over the weekend. Along with the Quakes, New England held serve at home by drilling Seattle, 5-0.

DREAM DEBUT. A day after Chicago’s Harry Shipp netted only the fifth rookie hat trick in league history, Mark Sherrod marked his first MLS start by scoring a pair of goals for the Dynamo. Sherrod, a rookie out of the University of Memphis, got the start up front in place of Will Bruin, who had scored in three straight games but wasn’t named to the game-day roster.

But Sherrod and the Dynamo couldn’t contain RSL maestro Javier Morales, whose hat trick included a goal just 17 seconds after the opening kickoff. He scored again before halftime and also picked up an assist prior to rounding off just fifth league hat trick in team history by converting a penalty kick in the final minutes.

2014 MLS Hat Tricks:
2 Bradley Wright Phillips, New York
1 Clint Dempsey, Seattle
1 Harry Shipp, Chicago
1 Javier Morales, Real Salt Lake

REVS ROMP. Seattle’s five-game winning streak crashed to a halt at New England, which continued its own strong run by thumping the Sounders, 5-0, at Gillette Stadium. Diego Fagundez, who led the Revs last year with 13 goals, netted his first two goals of the season as the Revs won their fourth game in the last five and retained a piece of the Eastern Conference lead along with Sporting KC.

Despite the loss, which was their third game in nine days, the Sounders stayed atop the overall MLS standings with a 7-3-1 record. RSL (5-0-5) is second, two points back.
