CARSON, California (AP) — Los Angeles beat Dallas 2-0 on Sunday to post successive wins for the first time since April and close within a point of the Texan club in a tightening race for the MLS Western Conference playoff spots.

The Galaxy dominated the match, with 22 shots on goal to 6, but had to wait until the 65th minute to go ahead, when Marcelo Sarvas nodded home a cross from Robbie Keane.

Hector Jimenez slotted home the second, on a pass from Robbie Rogers, in the 80th for the Galaxy, who now trail West leader Real Salt Lake by four points.

Second-placed Dallas would have moved even on points with RSL had it won.

COLUMBUS CREW 1, PORTLAND TIMBERS 0

Portland's 15-game unbeaten streak came to an end with a defeat at Columbus.

Bernardo Anor headed in the sole goal in the fourth minute and the Crew was able to hang on for a victory that kept them within touch of the playoff spots.

CHICAGO FIRE 1, SPORTING KANSAS CITY 2

Sporting scored twice inside the first eight minutes to set up a win at Chicago that moved the Kansans within a point of the Eastern Conference lead.

Benny Feilhaber scored his first of the season in the sixth minute, hammering in a shot from 16 yards.

Graham Zusi doubled the advantage soon after with a nonchalant 20-yard shot that curled over the goalkeeper and into the upper right-hand corner.

Chicago's Mike Magee cut the margin to 2-1 in the 38th minute but the Fire came up short in its bid for a fourth-straight win.

MONTREAL IMPACT 1 CHIVAS USA 1

Montreal's lead atop the East standings was sliced to a point when it was held at home by Chivas.

Chivas, which has not won in 13 games, took the lead in the 55th minute through Eric Avila.

Patrice Bernier equalized for Montreal from the penalty spot in the 80th minute after Mario De Luna brought down Sanna Nyassi.

COLORADO RAPIDS 0, D. C. UNITED 0

Colorado was also held by a lowly opponent, grinding out a scoreless stalemate against D. C. United.

The Rapids had beaten the top two teams in the Eastern Conference in their previous two games but could find no way past the lowly visitors.

D. C. United has scored only eight goals in 19 games this season and is still yet to win an away game.
