FRISCO, Texas An overflow sellout crowd of 21,020 turned out to see David Beckham, but Kenny Cooper stole the show.
The FC Dallas star scored two goals in two minutes on the way to a 4-0 victory over Beckham's Los Angeles Galaxy on Sunday night.
Cooper matched his career high of 11 goals and moved within one of the MLS lead. He has five in his last six games.
Cooper had multiple chances at a hat trick, ringing one off the crossbar in the 85th minute.
Dominic Oduro scored a goal and an assist while Abe Thompson also struck for Dallas. Goalkeeper Dario Sala made two saves for his fifth shutout of the season.
FIRE 0, WIZARDS 0: At Kansas City, Kan., Jon Busch made eight saves Sunday night to help the Chicago Fire preserve a scoreless draw with the Kansas City Wizards. Busch and Wizards goalkeeper Kevin Hartman each have seven shutouts this season, tying them for the league lead with Nick Rimando of Real Salt Lake.
Hartman made five saves for Kansas City (5-5-7), which extended its unbeaten streak to six matches two wins and four draws. Chicago (7-5-5) has not lost in five matches, with two wins and three draws.
The Wizards thought they had earned a penalty on John Thorrington's handball in the 74th minute. Referee Mark Geiger ruled that Thorrington was just outside the penalty area, however, and Davy Arnaud's free kick was cleared harmlessly.
The Fire's Cuauhtemoc Blanco and Diego Gutierrez will both be suspended for Saturday's game against Chivas USA for accumulating yellow cards.
Gutierrez was cautioned for a professional foul in the 55th minute, and Blanco the Most Valuable Player of the MLS All-Stars' 3-2 win over English club West Ham United last week was carded two minutes later for dissent.
EARTHQUAKES 1, RED BULLS 1: At Santa Clara, Calif., English import Darren Huckerby scored his first career MLS goal for the San Jose, but an earlier own goal by Earthquakes defender Eric Denton allowed New York to play to a 1-1 draw Sunday. The tie extended the winless streaks of the two last-place teams.
CREW 2, RAPIDS 0: At Commerce City, Colo., Steven Lenhart scored a goal in the first half and Jason Garey added another in the second to lead Columbus to a 2-0 win over the Rapids for the Crew's first first win at Colorado in eight years.
Lenhart scored with a shot from inside the penalty box in the 21st minute, but was shown a red card just before the first half ended after committing a serious foul. Garey scored his first goal of the season in the 75th minute to put the game out of reach.
The last time Columbus (9-5-4) won in Colorado (6-9-3) was July 4, 1999.
