FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Chicago and New England boosted their Major League Soccer playoff hopes with victories on Saturday, while Montreal, Dallas and Philadelphia failed to gain the victories they sought to improve their own postseason ambitions.
Chicago won 3-2 at Dallas to move into fifth place — the last playoff spot — in the Eastern Conference while Dallas remained seven points adrift of the top five in the West.
New England also pulled off a vital away win, beating Montreal 1-0 to creep within a point of the three teams — including the Impact — who occupy fourth through sixth in the East.
Philadelphia would have been budgeting on a win at lowly D.C. United but was held to a 1-1 draw in Washington, and remained one of those three teams locked on 46 points in fourth to sixth.
Chicago opened the scoring at Dallas in the 25th minute when Mike Magee swung in a corner from the left and Juan Luis Anangono headed home.
Magee then scored his 19th goal of the season — tying the league lead with Montreal's Marco di Vaio — in the 42nd minute when Alex's shot deflected off Magee's right shoulder.
