Burciaga's 90th-minute score boosts Wizards past Dynamo

Jose Luis Burciaga Jr. scored in the 90th minute to give Kansas City a 2-1 victory over the Dynamo last night in Houston.

The Dynamo (1-1) dominated much of the game, but defensive lapses allowed the Wizards (2-0) to escape with the victory.

Brian Ching, who scored four of Houston's goals in its 5-0 season-opening win over Colorado, broke a scoreless tie in the 64th minute when he headed in a shot off an assist from Kevin Goldthwaite. That lead lasted less than two minutes, however, with the Wizards' Sasha Victorine scoring on a header off a corner kick from Burciaga in the 66th minute.

Rapids 3, Crew 1 -- Terry Cooke assisted on all three of Colorado's goals to lead the Rapids over visiting Columbus.

Cooke set up Jovan Kirovski's tying goal in the 35th minute, and also assisted on Kyle Beckerman's 50th-minute goal and Fabrice Noel's 67th-minute score.

D.C. United 2, Chivas USA 0 -- In Washington, Jamie Moreno scored twice to help D.C. United beat Chivas USA for their first win this season.

FC Dallas 2, Real Salt Lake 1 -- Mark Wilson scored his first career MLS goal in the 57th minute to help FC Dallas to victory in Frisco, Texas.
