[MLS: Week 14] The LA Galaxy's inconsistent form continued as it had to settle for a 1-1 tie with the Western Conference's last-place team, Chivas USA, in their SuperClasico. Meanwhile, Eastern Conference leader New England fell at home to the depleted New York Red Bulls for the first time since 2002, dropping a 2-0 decision.

Sunday's result extended the Galaxy's unbeaten streak to four games but it will head into the World Cup in seventh place in the Western Conference, albeit with at least several games in hand on the teams ahead of it. The game marked the first start of the year for Robbie Rogers -- at left back.

The Red Bulls were playing without Thierry Henry, Tim Cahill, Jamison Olave, Roy Miller and Dax McCarty but won on goals by Eric Alexander and Peguy Luyindula. Just a year out of high school, Matt Miazga got his first start for New York, while rookie Chris Duvall earned another start on the makeshift backline.



SATURDAY. The Seattle Sounders will enter the World Cup break with a seven-point lead in the Supporters' Shield race thanks to a 3-2 win at the Chicago Fire. Obafemi Martins had two goals to give him eight on the season before being sent off in the 42 minute.

Fellow Nigerian Fanendo Adi added to his growing reputation with two more goals for the Portland Timbers, who ended their 11-game winless streak against Real Salt Lake with a 3-1 victory in Utah. Adi, acquired on loan from FC Copenhagen, has four goals and two assists in five games.

The Sounders now lead RSL by seven point in the Western Conference. New England leads the Eastern Conference by a point over Sporting Kansas City and D.C. United, though United can take the lead at the break with a win at Montreal on Wednesday.

-- Jermain Defoe, overlooked for England's World Cup team, scored his fourth goal in four games, from the penalty spot, since the roster announcement to give Toronto FC a 1-0 win over San Jose.

-- Vancouver extended its unbeaten streak to a record seven games when Pedro Morales scored his sixth goal of the season in the 81st minute to give the Whitecaps a 3-3 tie at Philadelphia. Casey Conor had two goals and Cristian Maidana assisted on all three goals as the Union came back from 2-0 down to take a 3-2 lead it could not hold.

-- The D.C. United-Columbus game, the nightcap of the doubleheader at Fedex Field that opened with the Spain-El Salvador friendly, ended 0-0. Steve Clark’s penalty save on D.C. striker Fabian Espindola's penalty kick preserved the draw.
