The New York Red Bulls went into the weekend looking for points to secure playoff position, but faced a tough test in the Western Conference-leading Seattle Sounders. But the Sounders, fresh off winning the U.S. Open Cup, were out of gas, it seems, and fell 4-1 on the road against the Red Bulls. With a win over FC Dallas, the Los Angeles Galaxy moved up to a tie with the Seattle Sounders atop the West in a Supporter’s Shield race.

In Americans Abroad action, Timmy Chandler earned his first start for Eintracht Frankfurt e.V., his hometown club. It marked his second appearance for the Eagles, playing to a 2-2 draw against Schalke 04.

In USL Pro action, the stage is now set for first-year expansion club Sacramento Republic FC to host the championship against the Harrisburg City Islanders after both sides edged out close wins this weekend.
