Calen Carr leads Dynamo to win
HOUSTON -- Calen Carr scored twice and the Houston Dynamo extended its unbeaten streak to five games by beating Sporting Kansas City 2-1 on Wednesday night.
The win tied Houston (8-5-7, 31 points) with the Chicago Fire for fourth place in the Eastern Conference and ended Kansas City's unbeaten streak at three games.
Carr put Houston ahead 2-1 in the 79th minute after feeding a pass to Brad Davis outside the left box and hitting Davis' cross inside the near post from inside the 6-yard box.
Carr scored from eight yards out in the 25th minute to give Houston a 1-0 lead, and Kei Kamara scored on a penalty kick in the 42nd for Kansas City (11-6-3, 36 points).
Toronto FC 2, Rapids 1
TORONTO -- Newly acquired forward Andrew Wiedeman scored his first MLS goal in the 68th minute to lift Toronto FC to victory.
Fullback Doneil Henry started the play on the go-ahead goal in the 68th minute. Beating a defender in the corner, he sent the ball toward the box and, after rookie Luis Silva swept it toward goal, Wiedeman poked it in.
The 22-year-old was playing in just his 10th career MLS game and was making his second appearance as a substitute since coming over to Toronto last Friday in the deal that sent Julian de Guzman to FC Dallas.
Impact 2, Revolution 1
MONTREAL -- Sanna Nyassi volleyed the winner in the 68th minute to give the Montreal Impact a 2-1 victory over the New England Revolution on Wednesday night.
Patrice Bernier also scored on a penalty for Montreal (7-12-3), which leapfrogged New England (6-9-4) to move into sixth place in the Eastern Conference standings.
Lee Nguyen's strike for New England was ruled an own goal, but it's likely the former Vancouver Whitecap will be credited with his fourth of the season.
New England, coming off a 1-0 loss to Toronto FC, has never won a game in Canada, going 0-1 in Vancouver and 0-2-4 in Toronto.
The Impact, now 6-3-2 at home, won for only the second time in their last six games.
