Seattle • Fredy Montero score in the 64th minute, Eddie Johnson added a clinching goal in the 87th minute and Seattle beat Cascadia Vancouver 2-0 in a key game at home for positioning in the MLS Western Conference playoff chase.
Just two minutes after coming off the bench, Montero got his eighth MLS goal of the season. Mauro Rosales took a free kick from about 35 yards out, but instead of going on net, chipped it into the penalty area. Defender Jeff Parke played the ball off his chest and directed it to Montero, who got just enough of his toe on the shot to bounce it past Vancouver goalkeeper Joe Cannon.
Chivas USA 1, Rapids 1 • Juan Pablo Angel scored in the 83rd minute to rally Chivas USA to a 1-1 tie with Colorado. Chivas USA (7-9-6) had only two shots on goal the entire game, both late in the game.
