MLS Provides an Exciting Saturday Nighcap

After the bore provided to us courtesy of the US National Team, Major League Soccer had about as exciting a night any league this side of LaLiga would provide. New England raced out to a 3-1 lead over Columbus by minute 30, but Guillermo Barros Schelotto, one MLS’ high profile international signings scored his first league goal and then set the equalizer with a wonderful cross to net a 3-3 draw.

The two best teams in MLS played to a 3-3 draw at the Meadowlands. The Red Bulls jumped out to a 2-0 lead early, but Kansas City than answered with three straight goals, two from youngster Yura Movsisyan. Controversy ensued in minute 90 with a controversial late penalty call which allowed Juan Pablo Angel to equalize and keep the Red Bulls on top of the east.

DC United seems to be getting things going at the right time. Fred is finally looking comfortable and Luciano Emilio scored twice in an easy 3-1 win over Chicago. Chivas USA continued its excellent run with a 2-0 win at the Home Depot Center over Colorado. One worrying note is that the attendance of just over 10,000 is Chivas fourth home date with less than 13,000 this year. It seems to loss of Mexican superstarts Ramon Ramirez and Paco Palencia has had a very negative affect on the fan base even if the team’s quality is higher than its first two seasons.
