WINNERS & LOSERS: Beasley celebrates Dutch title; Eddie Lewis out for season

Week 4 of the MLS season provided the HIGHEST SCORING WEEKEND of the season as 22 goals fell in six games for a 3.6 goals per game average. D.C. United and New England, in their first meeting since last season's 3-3 playoff barn-burner (followed by a United PK win), treated RFK fans to a 4-3 game, but this time the visitors were victorious. In other high-scoring affairs, L.A. downed Chivas USA, 3-1, in MLS's first derby and San Jose notched a 3-2 comeback win over Kansas City.

American midfielder DaMARCUS BEASLEY played the full 90 minutes in PSV Eindhoven's 3-0 win over Vitesse in which PSV clinched the Dutch Eredivisie title, its 18th. Beasley has made 28 league appearances and is the team's fifth leading scoring with six goals.

American keeper KASEY KELLER was Kicker Magazine's man of the match as he helped his relegation-threatened Borussia Moenchengladbach to a 0-0 tie at Nuremberg. Keller preserved the tie with a diving save off Marek Mintal's volley late in the game.


The METROSTARS' 1-0 loss to Chicago on Friday before 9,692 Giants Stadium fans gives them just two points from a three-game homestand to start the season. Amado Guevara missed a penalty kick for the Metros, who also saw defenders Jeff Agoos and Jeff Parke go off injured. The Metros were booed off the field.

Manchester United pulled of a 2-1 win over Newcastle but American keeper TIM HOWARD looked bad on Newcastle's goal, having mis-kicked a back pass to scorer Darren Ambrose.

PRESTON NORTH END, which is poised to earn a playoff spot for promotion to the English Premier League, has lost American winger Eddie Lewis for the rest of the season. Lewis, who underwent an appendectomy on Saturday morning, had appeared in 40 of Preston's 44 league games this season. Without Lewis, Preston fell, 2-1, to Millwall on Sunday. "It's disappointing for both Eddie and us. But the important thing is that he is all right and concentrates on getting a speedy recovery," said North End manager Billy Davies.
