The China Post - - SPORTS -

Vin­cent Nogueira scored in stop­page time and Philadel­phia beat New York City FC 2- 1 for the Union’s first Ma­jor League Soc­cer victory of the sea­son on Satur­day.

NYC goal­keeper Josh Saun­ders col­lided with Conor Casey in­side the 6-yard box de­fend­ing a cross and Nogueira toe-poked it home in the 92nd minute.

Zach Pf­ef­fer started the scor­ing in the 27th minute for Philadel­phia. Se­bastien Le Toux beat his de­fender, drib­bled to the goalline and fed it across to Pf­ef­fer.

For­mer Spain in­ter­na­tional David Villa equal­ized in the 55th minute for City, re­act­ing first to a re­bound off de­but goal­keeper John McCarthy to tap the ball into an empty net.

New York’s Lloyd Sam scored in the 90th minute to res­cue a 2-2 draw for the Red Bulls at high­fly­ing D.C. United.

Goal­keeper Bill Hamid blocked Sacha Kl­jes­tan’s free kick, but the ball squirted away and Sam beat his de­fender to the loose ball for the equal­izer.

Perry Kitchen gave United a 1- 0 lead af­ter head­ing Tay­lor Kemp’s 26th-minute cor­ner kick off the post and into the net. In the 67th minute, Chris Rolfe nav­i­gated through New York’s de­fense and found Kitchen, who took one touch and drilled a shot for a 2-0 lead for the Eastern Con­fer­ence lead­ers.

New York an­swered a minute later when Damien Per­rinelle headed in Felipe’s cor­ner kick for his first MLS goal.

Sanna Nyassi scored in the 75th minute and San Jose beat MLSlead­ing Van­cou­ver in a tem­pes­tu­ous match that saw both teams fin­ish with 10 men.

Van­cou­ver blocked the first two shot at­tempts of the se­quence, and then Nyassi smashed the left­footed strike from near the penalty spot into the left cor­ner of the goal for his first ca­reer goal with the Earth­quakes.

Pe­dro Mo­rales and Adam Jahn both re­ceived red cards in the 88th minute for a brief al­ter­ca­tion. Jahn went down, and Mo­rales kicked at the ball near Jahn’s mid­sec­tion af­ter the whis­tle. Jahn kicked back at Mo­rales’ shins in re­tal­i­a­tion.

Ri­cardo Clark dou­bled the lead for Hous­ton in the 72nd minute and Rob Love­joy capped the scor­ing in the 80th as the Dy­namo won for the first time in 5 games, de­spite Mon­treal con­trol­ling pos­ses­sion for most of the con­test.

Else­where, New Eng­land played to a score­less draw with Colum­bus, as did Real Salt Lake at Sport­ing Kansas City.
