NYCFC settles for draw against 10-man Revs as FC Dallas rip D.C. United
New York City FC could not find a winner despite playing up a man for 40 minutes in a 1-1 draw with the New England Revolution at Yankee Stadium on Saturday.
NYCFC took the lead in the 10th minute after David Villa rocketed a shot off the crossbar and the rebound fell to Thomas McNamara to score.
But the Revs tied it up when Chris Tierney's free kick took a massive deflection off of Steven Mendoza and went into the net in the 38th minute.
New England endured most of the second half with 10 men after Gershon Koffie was sent off for a tackle on McNamara, but the visitors held on to secure a draw, the winless club's third stalemate in four games.
Michael Barrios scored twice as FC Dallas cruised to a 3-0 win at D.C. United.
Barrios scored Dallas' opener in the 14th minute as he pounced on a defensive mix-up, and he added a second goal in the 28th minute after he was played through on goal by Mauro Diaz.
Maximiliano Urruti scored Dallas' third goal early in the second half after controlling a cross from Fabian Castillo.
Fabian Espindola had a chance to draw a goal back for D.C. but his poor penalty was saved by Chris Seitz, and things got worse for the hosts immediately afterward when Marcelo Sarvas was sent off for swinging a high arm at Barrios.
FC Dallas won its third game in its first four games while United is still looking for a first victory.
Pedro Morales scored on a penalty kick in the 23rd minute as the Vancouver Whitecaps beat the Houston Dynamo 1-0.
The Vancouver captain sent goalkeeper Joe Willis the wrong way from the spot after Dynamo defender Jalil Anibaba was judged to have fouled Whitecaps striker Masato Kudo in the area.
Morales leads Major League Soccer with four goals in four games to start the season, all on penalties. Vancouver's other two goals also have come from dead-ball situations -- off a corner and an indirect free kick.
