MLS: This Weekend ...

D.C. United moved back into first place in Major League Soccer with two second-half goals from Chris Rolfe in a 2-1 comeback win over the New England Revolution. In Sunday's other game, Real Salt Lake edged Sporting Kansas City, 2-1, on Olmes Garcia's stoppage-time goal.

The Vancouver Whitecaps moved into a tie for first place with the Seattle Sounders in the Western Conference when they beat the New York Red Bulls, 2-1, and the Sounders fell at home to the San Jose Earthquakes, 2-0. The star for the 'Caps was keeper David Ousted, who stopped two Bradley Wright-Phillips' penalty kicks.

The Portland Timbers won their fourth straight MLS game with a 2-0 win over the Houston Dynamo on goal by Maximiliano Urruti and Gaston Fernandez. New York City won its third straight match as two David Villa goals were the difference in a 2-0 win at Toronto FC.

The weekend results left seven teams in the Western Conference with winning records and just two teams in the Eastern Conference above the .500 mark. The Houston Dynamo is ninth in the Western Conference but would be third if it was still in the Eastern Conference.
