BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. (AP) — New England Revolution goalkeeper Bobby Shuttleworth stopped Juan Luis Anangono's penalty kick in the first minute of stoppage time Saturday to preserve a 1-1 draw with the Chicago Fire, who matched a Major League Soccer record with their sixth straight tie.

The Fire have tied each match since losing their opener. The six straight draws equaled an MLS mark last set by the Colorado Rapids in 2011.

Before Shuttleworth's save, Chicago forward Mike Magee hit the post on a breakaway with 25 seconds left in regulation.

New England (2-3-2) tied it on a penalty kick in the 31st minute when Chicago defender Patrick Nyarko pulled down Revolution defender Kevin Alston in the penalty area. Lee Nguyen's right-footed shot just eluded Chicago goalkeeper Sean Johnson's dive to the left.

Quincy Amarikwa scored his fourth goal of the season for Chicago in the 16th minute.

SPORTING KC 4, IMPACT 0

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — Dom Dwyer scored two goals in the second half, giving him four in his last four matches, and Kansas City moved into a share of the Eastern Conference lead with its victory over winless Montreal.

Dwyer scored in the 74th minute and the 86th for Sporting (3-1-2), which is unbeaten in its last five matches and tied with Columbus atop the East.

Aurelien Collin also scored for Kansas City with a left-footed shot just inside Troy Perkins' left post in the 71st.

Montreal (0-4-3) fell behind 1-0 in the 31st minute when midfielder Calum Mallace headed a throw-in into his own net.

Eric Kronberg needed to make just two saves to record his third shutout of the year for Kansas City.

FC DALLAS 2, TORONTO FC 1

FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Second-half substitute Blas Perez scored in the 88th minute to carry Dallas past Toronto.

Perez entered in the 70th minute for David Texeira and scored his third goal of the season when the ball fell to his feet 3 yards from the goal line following a long ball in.

The Panamanian rifled the shot off Toronto goalkeeper Julio Cesar's right foot and into the net to give Dallas (5-1-1) an MLS-best 16 points.

Dallas set a franchise record with 16 corners in the game, scoring its first goal from one of the set pieces in the 36th minute when Matt Hedges headed in a Michel corner.

Toronto (3-3-0) opened the scoring in the 21st minute when Issey Nakajima-Farran one-timed a second-chance effort past Dallas goalkeeper Chris Seitz, with the ball glancing slightly off Dallas midfielder Je-Vaughn Watson on the way.

SOUNDERS 2, CHIVAS USA 1

CARSON, Calif. (AP) — Obafemi Martins scored in the 81st minute to lift Seattle over Chivas USA.

Chivas played the final 16 minutes with 10 players after Marco Delgado was ejected in the 74th minute.

Lamar Neagle scored in the 24th minute for Seattle (4-2-1), which is 3-0-1 on the road this season.

Erick Torres opened the scoring in the fifth minute on a penalty kick for Chivas (1-3-3).

Seattle responded in the 24th minute when Chivas goalkeeper Dan Kennedy could not hold onto the ball and Neagle sent the rebound into an empty net.

Martins and Dempsey combined on the game-winner. Martins fed Dempsey, who dribbled toward the area and sent the ball back to Martins. As Kennedy ran off his line, Martins chipped the ball into the back of the net.

REAL SALT LAKE 1, TIMBERS 0

LAKE CITY (AP) — Ned Grabavoy scored in the 78th minute and Real Salt Lake defeated Portland to remain Major League Soccer's only unbeaten team.
