FRISCO, Texas — Kenny Cooper scored on a penalty kick in the 77th minute to lift FC Dallas into a 1-1 tie with the Portland Timbers on Wednesday night.
The draw extended the unbeaten streaks for two of the hottest clubs in MLS to eight games apiece.
Cooper's second goal of the season came after Portland's Andrew Jean-Baptiste was shown a yellow card for pulling down Blas Perez inside the penalty area a minute earlier. Cooper then stepped to the dot and slotted a low shot just inside the left post.
Raul Fernandez made three saves for Dallas, which owns the league's best record (6-1-3) and is now 6-0-2 in its last eight. Dallas also remains unbeaten at home (5-0-1), outscoring its foes 10-3.
Diego Chara scored and Donovan Ricketts made four saves for the Timbers (3-1-6).
At Red Bulls 2, Impact 1
Thierry Henry scored on a spectacular bicycle kick in the 88th minute for his second goal of the game as New York (6-4-2) won its fourth in a row. Marco Di Vaio scored for Montreal (5-2-2) in the 90th minute and almost tied the score a minute later, hitting both goalposts with one shot.
Dynamo 4, at D.C. United 0
Will Bruin continued his dominance over D.C. United (1-7-1), scoring two goals and assisting on a third to lead Houston. Giles Barnes and Andrew Driver also scored as the Dynamo (6-2-2) won its second straight road game in a rematch of last season's Eastern Conference finals.
Real Salt Lake 2, at Revolution 1
Substitute Olmes Garcia scored in the 89th minute to lift Real Salt Lake. Devon Sandoval tied the score for Salt Lake (5-4-2) in the 77th minute. Ryan Guy opened the scoring for the Revolution (2-4-3) in the 51st minute.
