Liga MX

FC Dallas soar to top of MLS Power Rankings, New York Red Bulls No. 2

Two goals in three minutes propelled FC Dallas to a 2-0 win over Vancouver.

Colorado's long unbeaten streak ended with a bang in the Bronx, so the Power Rankings have a new No. 1 ... the same as the old No. 1.

1. FC Dallas (+1)
It's still not clear if Fabian Castillo is leaving for Europe, but the distraction didn't hurt the club on Saturday in their 2-0 win vs. Vancouver. The talent runs deep in Texas.

2. New York Red Bulls (+3)
Bradley Wright-Phillips became RBNY's all-time leading scorer in Sunday's 2-2 draw in Chicago. Not bad for an English league reject who arrived with little fanfare.

3. Colorado Rapids (-2)
The end of the Rapids' long unbeaten run came in humbling fashion, but don't think it means anything: Pablo Mastroeni's team is for real.

4. LA Galaxy (-1)
Thoroughly outplayed in Seattle, L.A. can thank their depth for turning another loss into a point on the road. Sebastian Lletget isn't a starter, but he remains important.

5. Montreal Impact (-1)
Somehow Didier Drogba's meltdown and ejection didn't submarine the Impact's chances of getting a 1-1 draw in DC. Hernan Bernardello's return was a doozy.

Frank Lampard netted the first hat trick in team history as NYCFC cruised by a 10-man Colorado Rapids team 5-1.

6. New York City FC (+5)
Frank Lampard seemed like an unlikely candidate to tally NYCFC's first-ever hat trick when the season began, but there he was, scoring three times in a big win over Colorado.

7. Sporting Kansas City (-1)
Jacob Peterson nearly left the game in the first half after a collision. Good for Sporting that he didn't as he would later score the winning goal vs. Portland.

8. Toronto FC (-1)
Jozy Altidore scored his first goal since October 2015, but more importantly, he connected well with Sebastian Giovinco and provided good holdup play in Toronto's 3-0 win vs. Columbus.

9. Real Salt Lake (+1)
RSL broke a six-game winless run with a 2-1 win in Philadelphia, and Joao Plata scored his first goal since May 28.

10. Orlando City SC (+5)
Kaka and Brek Shea are back and Kevin Molino is in great form, as shown in Orlando City's 3-1 win over New England. What a time for Jason Kreis to grab the reins in Orlando.

Kevin Molino scored twice as Orlando City started the Jason Kreis era with a 3-1 win over New England.

11. Portland Timbers (-3)
The Timbers lost in Kansas City, but goalkeeper Jake Gleeson continues to validate the decision to sell Adam Kwarasey. A New Zealander, Gleeson made several big saves, giving his team a chance at points on the road.

12. San Jose Earthquakes (-3)
Chris Wondolowski's equalizer vs. Houston on Sunday was his first goal against his former team. The Earthquakes striker now has goals against 21 different MLS clubs.

13. Philadelphia Union (-1)
The Union have been a sieve since losing Vincent Nogueira, putting all the more pressure on Maurice Edu to get back from his long-term injury layoff.

14. New England Revolution (-1)
Charlie Davies' return from a battle with cancer should be a boost for the Revs. But they'll need to do better defensively to make the playoffs.

15. Vancouver Whitecaps (-1)
The Caps added Giles Barnes from the Dynamo in a desperate bid for scoring punch after a move for Fabian Espindola ended badly for everyone. Barnes should help.

Didier Drogba was sent off as Montreal came from behind to earn a point at DC United.

16. D.C. United (no change)
Coach Ben Olsen's frustration was palpable after United managed to dominate Montreal and then drop two points by conceding a late goal, but there are good signs for D.C. moving forward.

17. Houston Dynamo (no change)
Goals are at a premium in Houston, and it's hard to imagine things getting better now that Barnes has been shipped to Vancouver. Is interim head coach Wade Barrett being set up to fail?

18. Seattle Sounders (+1)
The Sounders probably should have beaten L.A., but it was tough for the club to just get through the first game without Sigi Schmid on the sideline.

19. Chicago Fire (+1)
Even when the Fire play well, they can't put away enough chances or tighten the screws defensively for a win. A missed chance to move out of last place will no doubt annoy coach Veljko Paunovic.

20. Columbus Crew SC (-2)
Crew SC falls back to the bottom after a poor showing in Toronto; what was nearly the Crew's first-choice team got dominated by TFC's reserves.
