MLS Predictions Recap, Thoughts & Surprises

Sporting Kansas City 1 – 1 L.A. Galaxy
Sporting Kansas City were left to rue a host of missed chances and had to settle for a point after tying with L.A. Galaxy 1-1 this weekend.
Kansas City had 14 shots on the Galaxy goal, but only one of those was on target, the superb goal by Brad Davis on 30-minutes. The match was a real end-to-end affair, and Galaxy drew level through a wonderful goal by Giovani dos Santos in the 42nd minute.
Galaxy’s Ashley Cole hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons after being sent off for a second bookable offence. Cole was cautioned in the 69th minute for timewasting, and received his marching orders a few seconds later after a rash challenge on Benny Feilhaber.
Seattle Sounders 1 – 0 Columbus Crew SC
Rookie striker Jordan Morris netted his third goal of the season as the Seattle Sounders ran out 1-0 winners against a toothless Columbus Crew SC.
Crew started the game on the front foot, their swift passing looked to be too much for the Sounders to handle, yet they broke down in the final third on dozens of occasions, something that should worry the Crew coach and their fans.
The game looked to be heading for a 0-0 draw until Joevin Jones embarked on a strong run in the 88th minute before releasing Morris who scored from close range to send the Rave Green crowd into raptures.
Sounders have now won three of their last five games, while Crew remain second-bottom of the Eastern Conference.
New England Revolution 2 – 2 Orlando City
New England Revolution stuttered to their seventh tie in 10 games in a 2-2 draw at home to Orlando City, although it took a last minute effort from Carlos Riva to see the spoils shared.
The Revolution went ahead in only the seventh minute through Diego Fagundez with all the hard work done by Lee Nguyen; the goal was Fagundez’s third of the season. Trinidad’s Kevin Molino pulled Orlando level in the 30th minute, before Juan Agudelo restored the home side’s one-goal advantage.
A last gasp goal from Rivas on 90-minutes secured a point for Orlando who climbed to fourth in the Eastern Conference on goal difference.
