Carson, Calif. • Kellyn Acosta scored in the 69th minute and FC Dallas beat the Los Angeles Galaxy 2-1 in a Major League Soccer opener Saturday.

Dallas spoiled Curt Onalfo's first game with Los Angeles after replacing Bruce Arena as coach.

Rapids 1, Revolution 0 • At Commerce City, Colo., Dominique Badji scored, Zac McMath made three saves and Colorado beat New England in their opener.

Badji drew a foul on Benjamin Angoua, setting up a free kick by Dillon Powers near the right corner. Kevin Doyle's header bounced off the far post before Jared Watts and goalkeeper Cody Copper converged on the ball, sending it high in the air and Badji's header from inside the 6-yard box found the back of the net in the 52nd minute.

Fire 1, Crew 1 • At Columbus, Ohio, David Accam turned a defender around and scored in 73rd minute to give Chicago the draw with Columbus in the season opener.

Dax McCarty intercepted a pass at midfield and quickly put the ball forward to John Gossens, who slotted it ahead to Accam. Accam dribbled into the box where he turned around a Crew defender before rolling a shot into the far right corner.

Ethan Finlay scored for Columbus in the 17th minute.

D.C. United 0, Sporting Kansas City 0 • At Washington, Bill Hamid made five saves, including one late against Dom Dwyer, to help D.C. United tie Sporting Kansas City in the team's last Major League Soccer home opener at RFK Stadium.

Dynamo 2, Sounders 1 • At Houston, Romell Quioto had a goal in his Major League Soccer debut and the Dynamo scored two first-half goals to beat defending MLS Cup champion Seattle.
