IMPACT 2, FIRE 2

BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. (AP) Marco Di Vaio and Maxim Tissot scored goals, and Troy Perkins made five saves as the Montreal Impact rallied to a 2-2 draw with the Chicago Fire on Saturday night.

The tie brought the Impact (13-9-7) its first point in three matches (0-2-1), while the single point for Chicago left the Fire (11-12-7) two points out of the last playoff berth in the Eastern Conference with four matches remaining.

Tissot tied it for Montreal in the 87th minute. Left alone in the left side of the penalty area, he took a loose ball and deftly headed it past sprawling goalkeeper Sean Johnson.

Fire forward Mike Magee scored twice in a 16-minute span, putting Chicago ahead 2-1 in the 73rd. He also sent a penalty kick off the crossbar.

Di Vaio's league-leading 19th goal had given the Impact a 1-0 lead in the 25th.

DYNAMO 1, REVOLUTION 1

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) - Will Bruin scored in the 76th minute to lift the Houston to the draw with New England.

Bruin's goal was his eighth of the season and second in two games, and moved Houston (12-10-8) into fourth place in the Eastern Conference.

Saer Sene gave New England (11-11-8) the lead in the 65th minute, sending a hard shot off the right wing to the far top left corner of the net.

REAL SALT LAKE 1, WHITECAPS 0

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - Devon Sandoval scored in the ninth minute to lift Real Salt Lake.

Using a mostly a second-team lineup, Salt Lake (15-10-6) gained a share of first place in the Western Conference.

The Whitecaps (11-11-8) saw their playoff hopes fade some more as they remained four points behind fifth-place Colorado with only four games remaining. Only the top five teams qualify for the postseason.

Camilo was in Vancouver's starting lineup after scoring two goals as a second-half substitute a week earlier in Montreal. Whitecaps striker Kenny Miller missed the game a groin injury.

TORONTO FC 4, DC UNITED 1

TORONTO (AP) - Toronto FC scored three goals in a 20-minute span of the second half to beat undermanned D.C. United.

The win snapped an eight-game league winless streak for Toronto (5-15-11).

D.C. United (3-21-6) now hasn't won in eight games.

Bright Dike, Alvaro Rey and Darel Russell scored for Toronto, which also got an own goal. Midfielder Jared Jeffrey replied for D.C. United.

Dike's goal came in the 67th minute after referee Ted Unkel played advantage when a D.C. United defender pulled a Toronto player down. Defemder Mark Bloom motored past the wreckage and sent in a cross that Dike volleyed home for his first goal in a Toronto shirt.
