[MLS WINNERS & LOSERS]
After being sidelined for all but 65 minutes of the 2009 season, Taylor Twellman
hit the field on Sunday and made some history.
Last year's MVP indicated he's even hotter this year. It was a bad week for the coach most likely to get the sack. And the red cards flew again around the league, including an ejection for a
knee to the groin. WINNERS GUILLERMO BARROS SCHELOTTO.
Last year's league MVP scored twice for defending
champ Columbus in its 2-0 win over Kansas City. The Argentine now has eight goals, one more than he finished the 2008 regular season with. The 3-2-7 Crew, which started the season with a seven-game
winless streak, is now unbeaten in its last eight games. VIDEO TAYLOR TWELLMAN
scored his 100th MLS goal when he struck for the second time in New England's 4-0 win over the New
York Red Bulls. Twellman, playing in only his second game of the season because of a neck injury, is the fifth player in MLS history to hit the century mark in goals, joining Jaime
(126), Ante Razov
(114), Jason Kreis
(108) and Jeff Cunningham
(105). VIDEO ARTURO ALVAREZ.
The San Jose attacker went
to Texas, where he played his youth soccer, and scored the Quakes' second goal in a 2-2 tie with his former team, FC Dallas. Alvarez scored San Jose's winner last week, ending the Quakes'
five-game losing streak. VIDEO EDUARDO LILLINGSTON.
The Mexican striker, acquired by Chivas USA in the offseason, scored his fifth goal of the season, the decider in its 1-0
home win over the Seattle Sounders that keeps Chivas USA first in overall in MLS, six points ahead of Chicago and Houston. Lillingston connected on a rebound after keeper Kasey Keller
parried a hard drive from midfielder Paulo Nagamura
. It was Lillingston's third gamewinner of the season. VIDEO
EDSON BUDDLE. The striker scored his second goal of the season
against Toronto FC, one of his three former teams, to clinch a 2-1 win for Los Angeles, which had won just once before in 2009. Buddle scored 15 goals last season. VIDEO
CHAD MARSHALL. The Columbus defender ended a wrestling bout with Aaron Hohlbein
by kneeing the Kansas City defender in the groin and got a red card. VIDEO
JUAN CARLOS OSORIO. The New York Red Bulls' coach got closer to the chopping block when his team fell, 4-0,
at New England, three days after a 2-0 loss at D.C. United. As has happened often this season, the Bulls looked the better team in the first half, gave up a goal, and fell apart. They are 0-5-1 on the
road this season with zero goals scored. They play at Toronto FC on Saturday before returning home, where they also have a losing record (2-3-2).
NATE JAQUA. The
forward became the fifth Seattle Sounder to get red-carded in the team's 12 games this season. He was sent to the locker room in the 88th minute of Seattle's 1-0 loss to Chivas USA for a
second caution. VIDEO
ROBBIE RUSSELL. Real Salt Lake was headed to a 1-0 win over Colorado to end a six-game losing streak when the defender was ejected for his second caution, in the
82nd minute. Six minutes later, Colorado equalized with an Omar Cummings goal. VIDEO
FC DALLAS. Only 5,724 showed up for its Sunday game against San Jose, a 2-2
tie. It was the fifth sub-10,000 crowd at Pizza Hut Park in six games this season.
