Here are the moments to remember:

Philadelphia Union 2-2 LA GalaxyRECAP

The Galaxy scored a pair of real nice team goals, including the below beauty from Mike Magee, but Keegan Rosenberry’s first MLS goal earned Philly a point.

Colorado Rapids 1-0 Sporting KC

Dillon Serna’s low shot through traffic might’ve taken its time, but the Rapids increased their Western Conference lead to three points with another win over reeling KC.

FC Dallas 2-1 Portland Timbers

Caleb Porter’s plan to have another subpar regular season, then turn it on late and win MLS Cup is on track. Woof.

Vancouver Whitecaps 2-1 Chicago Fire

Blas Perez wants to ride his bicycle, he wants to ride his bike. Call him Blas Armstrong. Or Brace Perez.

San Jose Earthquakes 3-1 Houston Dynamo

The Quakes cruised in this one, but let’s take a moment to salute Ricardo Clark’s rip for Houston.
