TORONTO Chad Barrett scored a goal and Toronto FC earned a 1-1 tie against league-leading New England on Saturday night.
Playing his fourth game for Toronto since being acquired in a trade with the Chicago Fire, Barrett took a pass from Rohan Ricketts in the penalty area before turning and firing a left-footer past New England goalie Doug Warren in the 66th minute.
The goal seemed to energize Toronto, which just missed going ahead 2-1 in the 73rd minute when Marvell Wynne shot wide on an outstanding chance from in close.
FC DALLAS 1, WIZARDS 1: At Kansas City, Kan., Jimmy Conrad scored out of a loose-ball scramble in second-half stoppage time, giving Kansas City the draw. Conrad's team-leading fifth goal came from just inside the 6-yard box on an assist from Josh Wolff. Andre Rocha scored his first Major League Soccer goal early in the first half, but FC Dallas, which played a man down for the last 28 minutes, couldn't hang on. FC Dallas (6-7-8) missed a chance to move past Real Salt Lake into second place in the Western Conference. Kansas City (6-7-8) avoided its first home loss since a 3-0 defeat by Columbus on June 14.
UNITED 3, RAPIDS 0: At Washington, Louis Crayton had his second shutout in three matches and Joe Vide and Quavas Kirk scored their first career goals. Colorado has only one victory in its last six matches and extended its road winless streak to seven. The Rapids haven't won at RFK Stadium since 1999.
