The New England Revolutions losing streak is up to eight games after Saturday nights 2-1 home defeat to the struggling Columbus Crew.
A.J. Soares' 50th-minute goal brought the Revs' level after Columbus scored the first goal just before halftime, but Ethan Finley's game-winning goal in the 84th-minute sealed the win for the visiting Crew.
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. From 2005 till 2008, Michael Parkhurst was a rock in the New England Revolution's back line, earning Rookie of the Year, Defender of the Year, and MLS Best XI honors while leading the team to three straight MLS Cup appearances and a U.
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Federico Higuain's first goal in more than two months could not have come at a better time for the Columbus Crew, who have now won consecutive games for the first time since opening the season with three wins.
Higuain scored his seventh goal of the season on a free kick just before halftime and Ethan Finlay broke a deadlock with six minutes to play, as the Crew sent the New England Revolution to their eighth-straight loss in a 2-1 victory at Gillette Stadium Saturday night.
Remember all that gloating we had last month at the World Cup when the USA advanced out of the Group of Death while England was sent home early? How the progress of the national team was a sign of his far Major League Soccer has come? Well last night was reality check for the league as MLS sides went head to head with five Premier League sides and the results were not pretty.
KANSAS CITY, Kan. — It's been a good week to be Benny Feilhaber.
The 29-year-old midfielder followed up his midweek dominance over the Columbus Crew with a marvelous free kick in a 2-1 victory over the LA Galaxy Saturday to help Sporting Kansas City see its unbeaten streak move to six matches.
COLUMBUS, Ohio Sporting Kansas City have developed a knack for winning games in the dying seconds of the match.
For the second time in four days, Sporting KC won on a last-minute goal, this time coming from the right foot of Benny Feilhaber as he launched a rocket off the underside of the crossbar in the 93rd minute to give his side a stunning 2-1 win over the Columbus Crew on Saturday night in Crew Stadium.
Major League Soccer is in full swing again following the World Cup and will take center stage Wednesday with four matches involving teams needing results.
The action kicks off with the New York Red Bulls and Philadelphia Union at PPL Park. The Red Bulls haven't lost a league fixture in five matches and will be looking to extend that statistic to six against a laboring Union squad led by interim head managerJim Curtin.
The Colorado Rapids will be without one of their starting defenders when they face the Portland Timbers on Friday on national television.
Major League Soccer's Disciplinary Committee announced on Tuesday that defender Shane O'Neill has been suspended one match and fined an undisclosed amount for "aserious foul play which endangered the safety of an opponent" in the Rapids' 3-3 draw at the Philadelphia Union.
Adam Bedell probably wasn't expecting to come on in the first half against the New York Red Bulls, but he took his chance and made something out of it.
Come on for the injured Jairo Arrieta in the 25th minute, the towering Bedell fired home a first-time strike on the half-volley in the 39th minute for his first career MLS goal, tying the game at 1-1 at the time at the New York Red Bulls.
Dax McCarty's long injury layoff could end as soon as this weekend.
Ahead of the New York Red Bulls' match on Saturday against the Columbus Crew, head coach Mike Petke teased to reporters that the 27-year-old midfielder could be back in the starting lineup after missing more than a month with a knee injury.
Benny Feilhaber is hoping he can give Sporting Kansas City some much needed midfield relief.
After joining the team's long injury list on June 6 and missing the last three Sporting KC games in all competitions, Feilhaber says he's healthy enough to return to the field this Sunday against the Chicago Fire, if coach Peter Vermes picks him.
With Major League Soccer and the rest of American soccer kicking off we've curated an impressive list of players, personalities, broadcasters, front office folk, and fans to have them tell us (and you) about their upcoming 2014 season.
And, of course, pair their hopes and dreams for this season with a tasty local brew.
LANDOVER, Md. Preceded by a Spain-El Salvador friendly on Saturday night, D.C. United (6-4-4) faced off against the Columbus Crew (4-5-6) at a site that was home away from home. Sure, United fans were in the building, but this wasn't RFK; it was Fed-Ex Field, home of the NFL's Washington Redskins.
The New York Red Bulls came off their World Cup break not that long ago, yet much of the talk surrounding the club last week was about how fatigued some of the players felt during a challenging but not uncommon three-games-in-eight-days stretch.
It was truly the Thierry Henry Show at Red Bull Arena this past Saturday. On the strength of "Le Roi's" one goal, three assist performance, the New York Red Bulls crushed the visiting Columbus Crew 4-1.
Not only was this a landmark performance for TH14, with his on the field performance, but this one also saw the return of "Angry Henry".
Sporting KC are the defending MLS Cup champions. Tomorrow at Sporting KC welcome the winner of the previous two MLS Cups, the LA Galaxy to Sporting Park.

Since then they have played four games at home, getting a loss and three draws in those four games.
Aurelien Collin will get the opportunity to be on the field tomorrow against the LA Galaxy after an independent review panel agreed with Sporting KC's appeal of his red card. Collin picked up his second red card of the season in the 55th minute of Wednesday's game against the Columbus Crew when he went up for a header against Adam Bedell.
Sporting KC had quite a bit of trouble getting to Columbus for tomorrow's game against the Crew. After a flight delay to DC, the team split up and headed to Chicago and New York. The Chicago crew, including the coaches made it to Columbus later in the day Monday. The group that went to New York though weren't so lucky.
Today the MLS Disciplinary Committee announced a 2-game suspension for Vicente Sanchez after his tackle on Hector Jimenez last week against the Columbus Crew. You can see the tackle here. He'll miss the road games tomorrow in Philly and next Friday in Portland.
Its a fair punishment for what was, unintentionally, a horrible tackle.
Bellingham Bay, WA fireworks, same ones we saw 16 years ago at our wedding reception The annual Independence Day game tomorrow with the Columbus Crew as the opponent. With the post-game fireworks the kickoff will be at 7:30pm instead of the normal 7pm. That means the tailgate starts at 4:30 and its not in its normal spot due to preparations for the World Lacrosse Championships that start next week.

COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Columbus Crew and FC Dallas paused before their scoreless draw Sunday to support the recovery of a firefighter who was struck by lightning in the southwest parking lot of Crew Stadium.
Expect the Fire to field a strong side against USL-Pro's Pittsburgh Riverhounds. The visitors feature former Fire bust Collins John and ex-MLS players Joseph Ngwenya and Danny Earls but they currently sit at the bottom of the USL table with a 1-7-5 record. Frank Yallop will have a full squad at his disposal with the exception of Patrick Nyarko and Gonzalo Segares, who both underwent surgery to remove bone spurs in their ankles over the last few weeks.
IT'S ALL HAPPENING AT THE SAME TIME. D.C. United host the Columbus Crew, and the United States play their final World Cup tuneup against Nigeria, simultaneously this evening. Plus California Chrome goes for the Triple Crown. What else can we pile into this superthread?
