FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Octavio Rivero scored on a penalty kick in the 31st minute and the Vancouver Whitecaps snapped the New England Revolution's 17-game home unbeaten streak with a 2–1 victory Saturday night.

The West-leading Whitecaps have won an MLS-best six road games through the first half of the season.

New England has lost three straight. It was coming off back-to-back 2–1 losses at Washington and Columbus.

Vancouver grabbed the lead in the 18th minute when Cristian Techera's left-footed shot caromed off Revolution goalkeeper Bobby Shuttleworth's gloves and trickled into the lower left corner.

New England's Andrew Farrell committed a hard foul in the penalty area in the 31st minute, earning a red card and giving Vancouver a spot kick that Rivero converted to make it 2–0.

Teal Bunbury halved the Vancouver lead in the 84th minute, finding a loose ball off a New England set piece and driving it into the middle of the goal.

​Matias Perez Garcia added two assists for the Quakes (7-5-4), the first on a well-placed cross that Wondolowski smashed into the net in the 28th minute for a 1-all tie. Wondolowski moved alone into second place the MLS goal race, three behind Columbus' Kei Kamara.

Clarence Goodson gave San Jose the lead in the 53rd minute, heading home Perez Garcia's corner kick.

Cordell Cato capped the scoring for the Earthquakes with a patient left-footed finish in the 72nd.

The Galaxy (7-6-7) took the lead in the 17th minute on Juninho's 30-yard rocket from straightaway that curled just enough from San Jose goalkeeper David Bingham's diving reach.

D.C. United 0, Toronto FC 0

TORONTO (AP) — D.C. United's Bill Hamid made a diving save on Sebastian Giovinco in the 67th minute and the Washington club tied Toronto FC 0–0 on Saturday in rainy and windy conditions.

Players had trouble putting passes together in the relentless rain, with wind gusts that had the players' shorts flapping like flags.

Eastern Conference-leading D.C. United is 10-5-5. Toronto is 7-6-2.

Union 2, Impact 2

CHESTER, Pa. (AP) — Maurice Edu punched home a rebound from in front of the Montreal goal in the 76th minute and the Philadelphia Union salvaged a soggy 2–2 draw with the Impact on Saturday night in a rainstorm.

After a Philadelphia corner kick, the ball bounced outside the box and Fabinho fired a shot that goalkeeper Evan Bush stopped but couldn't control. Edu was able to settle the ball and strike home the tying goal.

Eric Ayuk Mbu gave Philadelphia (5-10-4) a 1–0 lead, one-timing a shot from the top of the penalty box in the eighth minute.

Montreal (5-6-3) tied it when Ignacio Piatti right-footed a shot from outside the box into the bottom right corner.

Former Union forward Jack McInerney put the short-handed Impact ahead just minutes after Patrice Bernier was sent off after getting a second yellow card. McInerney settled a pass from Andres Romero at the top of the box and fired a shot into the bottom right corner.

Sporting KC, Rapids 0

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — Krisztian Nemeth scored his seventh goal of the season and Sporting Kansas City beat the Colorado Rapids 2–0 on Saturday night.

Chance Myers and Benny Feilhaber assisted on Nemeth's goal in the 32nd minute. It was Feilhaber's MLS-leading ninth assist.

Myers returned to MLS action for the first time since rupturing his Achilles tendon on May 23, 2014. The defender's first competitive action came in a 1–0 Open Cup win over St. Louis FC on June 16.

Rapids midfielder Sam Cronin conceded an own goal in the 64th minute on a misplay of Feilhaber's cross.

Luis Solignac nearly pulled Colorado even 10 minutes earlier, but his shot missed inches wide of the left post.

Kansas City improved to 7-3-6, and Colorado dropped to 2-6-9. The Rapids, who have not won in Kansas City since 2002, stretched their MLS winless streak to six.


Crew 2, Real Salt Lake 2

Sebastian Jaime made it 2–1 for Real Salt Lake only 25 seconds into the second half. He chased down Abdoulie Mansally's long ball and slipped between Crew defenderEmanuel Pogatetz and goalkeeper Steve Clark for a chip shot.

Olmes Garcia finished a four-touch buildup off Luke Mulholland's free kick to open the scoring for RSL (5-6-7) in the 36th minute.
