In the West, the San Jose Earthquakes clinched the Western Conference title with a 4-1 win at Colorado. Chris Wondolowski scored a hat trick, after setting up Marvin Chavez for the opener just 95 seconds into the game.

Real Salt Lake is in second place in the West, moving five points clear of Los Angeles by winning 2-1 at the Galaxy. Robbie Keane had put L.A. ahead with a brilliant volleyed goal in the 17th minute, but Fabian Espindola scored twice for Salt Lake in less than three minutes midway through the first half.

In Saturday's other game, Philadelphia Union won 1-0 at home against New England Revolution.
