WINNERS & LOSERS: Rey hits a winner; Big fine for Mexico

SERGIO GALVAN REY, who's scoring touch had deserted him upon arriving to MLS in 2004, notched his fifth goal of the season to provide the MetroStars' gamewinner in a 3-2 triumph over Dallas that takes them into the All-Star break with a winning record.

COLUMBUS downed Fulham, in town for Saturday's MLS All-Star Game, 2-1 in a Wednesday friendly on goals by Marcus Storey and Domenic Mediate. Fulham finished 13th in last season's English Premier League.

Los Angeles developmental player HERCULEZ GOMEZ, set up by a Landon Donovan pass, notched his fourth goal of the season, allowing the struggling Galaxy to escape New England with a 1-1 tie.

CHRIS ROLFE, who earns less in a year than most AC Milan players earn in a week, scored against the 2005 Champions League runner-up with a searing 20-yard shot Chicago's 3-1 friendly loss on Wednesday. The Fire created numerous opportunities in the lively game before 21,954 at Solder Field, including two shots against the post and two breakaways by Andy Herron.


Wednesday's loss to the MetroStars marked the first time DALLAS has suffered back-to-back defeats this season and leaves it even on points at the top of the Western Conference with San Jose, which has a game in hand.

FIFA has fined the MEXICAN SOCCER FEDERATION (FMF) $580,000 for its conduct during the doping scandal involving two players during the Confederations Cup. The FMF had drug tested its own players before the tournament, but apparently didn't receive Salvador Carmona's and Aaron Galindo's positive results (for the anabolic steroid nandrolone) until two games into the tournament. After a brief cover-up, the FMF admitted the true reason for sending the players home.
