Missed watching MLS matches on DSport? Let’s have a look here at what all happened across MLS during this week.
Sporting Kansas City 2, New York Red Bulls 0
Sporting Kansas City won their second game in a row, and fourth in five, on Thursday with a 2-0 victory over the New York Red Bulls at Children’s Mercy Park.
Sporting took the lead within in a minute of the restart, as Dom Dwyer was in the right place at the right time to beat Sal Zizzo, playing center back in this match. Dwyer doubled the lead and grabbed his second of the night in the 68th minute.

- New York Red Bulls with 16 points are at 5th spot in the Eastern Conference Club
- Sporting Kansas City with 18 points are at 2nd spot in the Western Conference Club
Colorado Rapids 0, Vancouver Whitecaps 1
The Vancouver Whitecaps took a vital road win for the second week in a row, as they defeated the Colorado Rapids 1-0 on Saturday at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park.
Brek Shea came off the bench and scored the game’s only goal on a breakaway in the 84th minute to claim all three points for the visitors. The Rapids played the final moments down a man, as defender Mekeil Williams was shown a second yellow card for a rough tackle in the 88th minute.
2017 promises to be a fascinating season for Brek Shea, who is seeking a mid-career resurgence with Vancouver after treading water a bit in the latter stages of his time at Orlando City. A knee injury in CONCACAF Champions League sidelined him for nearly all of April, but he returned with some style on Saturday, coming off the bench to stun the Rapids with a late winner for the Whitecaps at DSG Park. Will the lanky Texan find the form that once made him one of MLS’ most dangerous attackers?
- 84′ – VAN – Brek Shea
- Colorado Rapids with only 4 points are at 11th spot, bottom of the Western Conference Club
- Vancouver Whitecaps with 13 points are at 6th spot in the Western Conference Club
LA Galaxy 2, Chicago Fire 2
It was a tale of two halves, with the 2-2 draw between the LA Galaxy and Chicago Fire showcasing the triumphs and woes that have defined the seasons of both clubs up to this point in the season.
The first half proved a demonstration of the ways in which David Accam and the Fire can use speed to trouble defenses, with Chicago’s left winger involved in the buildup to both goals – ultimately scoring the first off a penalty kick. The Galaxy, for their part, looked a step behind, and head coach Curt Onalfo chose to sub out captain Jelle Van Damme to make a statement.
In the second half the Galaxy came out with a renewed purpose and used a pair of set piece goals to climb back into the match. Forward Giovani dos Santos was visibly relieved to manage his first goal since week 1 of the MLS season.
- 13′ – CHI – David Accam (PK)
- 16′ – CHI – Nemanja Nikolic
- 56′ – LA – Daniel Steres
- 65′ – LA – Giovani dos Santos
- LA Galaxy with 8 points are at 9th spot in the Western Conference Club
- Chicago Fire with 12 points are at 6th spot in the Eastern Conference Club
