    Orlando City SC verses Houston Dynamo:  The Lions get there first ever win against the Dynamo.  The game was even for the most part.  Pedro Ribeiro was tackled into the net with the ball, but it was Tyler Deric, the Dynamo keeper, that hit the ball in the net.   Kaka had some great shots that were stopped by Deric, but he couldn’t keep everything out of the net.  Donovan Ricketts earned a shutout for the Lions.  He didn’t have to make a save because none of the shots were ever on frame.  Orlando City SC 1-0 Houston Dynamo.

    Chicago Fire verses Vancouver Whitecaps:  Even though the Chicago’s home opener was played in front of a good crowd and the game was good; they just couldn’t pull of the home win over Vancouver.  Chicago controlled most of the position but Vancouver had more shots and had the only thing that matters in soccer, a goal.  This late goal was the deciding factor of the game.  Chicago Fire 0-1 Vancouver Whitecaps

    Real Salt Lake verse Philadelphia Union:  These two teams drew in their previous games 0-0.  Both teams ended up scoring a lot in this game.  Real Salt Lake opened the scoring up.  Philadelphia answered back with two quick goals from Fernando Aristeguieta.  In the 55th minute Jamison Olave scored to tie the game, but not three minutes later he put the ball in his own net.  A late goal by Philadelphia brought the score to 3-3 which is what the scored ended as.

    Columbus Crew verses Toronto FC:  Toronto was coming off a good win last week, but couldn’t get anything going in this game.  Having a red card at the end of the second half doesn’t help Toronto any though.  This gave Columbus what they needed to push forward in the second half.  They had over 20 shots during the match.  Columbus to advantage of Toronto being a man down for the second half and made them pay.  They scored two goals less than five minutes apart, which is all they needed to beat Toronto.

    FC Dallas verses Sporting Kansas City:  This game was a little different.  Kansas City had most of the possession of the ball, but an early goal by Blas Perez was something that Kansas City couldn’t come back from.   Even though Kansas City scored right before half-time FC Dallas came out in the second half to win the game.  They scored 2 more goals to win the game 3-1 for the home side. 

    Seattle Sounders FC verse San Jose Earthquakes:  You would think by scoring the quickest goal in the MLS, 20 seconds in.  Seattle still could not hold off the Quakes from winning the game.  Chris Wondolowski seems to know exactly what to do against the Sounders to get goals.  Wondolowski scored the first two goals of the Quakes, and then Emeghara put it away with the third goal.  Seattle tried to mount a comeback but couldn’t get enough goals to equalize.  Seattle 2-3 San Jose Earthquakes

    New York City FC verses New England Revolution:  David Villa gets his first goal of the season for NYCFC.  He puts away the ball calmly into the corner.    City’s offense seemed unstoppable with the barrage of shots that were shot at Bobby Shuttleworth.  It doesn’t help the Revolution that they were given a red card for pulling a forward down that was on a break behind the defense.  This made the comeback hard for New England Revolution.  New York City FC 2-0 New England Revolution

    Portland Timbers verses Los Angeles Galaxy:  LA was able to control the ball very well in the game, but wasn’t able to put away the chances that they had.  Fanendo Adi, for Portland, was able to put two goals away.  The second goal, he thought would be a game winner but two minutes later the Galaxy was able to get a goal to tie the game in extra time.  It was a dagger for Portland’s fans and team.
