DID YOU KNOW?
  • New York's 1-0 win over Philadelphia officially eliminated Portland from postseason contention. Real Salt Lake had qualified previously.

  • Real Salt Lake’s scoreless result with Colorado was their first draw since July 4; they had gone 8-8 in their previous 16 matches.
  • Kyle Beckerman will serve his third and final match of a suspension for a headbutt against Daniel Paladini of the Chicago Fire.
  • The Timbers saw a six-game home unbeaten streak end with their 2-0 loss to Houston. Their nine home victories this year are tied for third-best in MLS (behind the LA Galaxy’s 12 and Real Salt Lake’s 10).
