MIAMI - The Vancouver Whitecaps stormed
back from three goals down to earn a 3-3 draw in a thrilling
encounter with Sporting Kansas City, while David Beckham set up
the winner in L.A. Galaxy's 1-0 win over the Philadelphia Union
in Major League Soccer action this weekend.
Two magnificent strikes from Teal Bunbury put Sporting
ahead in Vancouver before the 21-year-old US international
set up Kei Kamara for a commanding 3-0 lead in the 62nd minute.
But the expansion Whitecaps roared back with a close range
effort from Atiba Harris and two dramatic injury-time goals
from Brazilian forward Camilo Sanvezzo.
The Galaxy, who had a slow start to the season, earned
three points from a tough battle with Philadelphia, scoring the
game's lone goal in the 33rd minute when Beckham whipped in a
one of his trademark free-kicks from deep on the right that
Brazilian defender Leonardo headed home.
L.A. were forced to play most of the second half with 10
men after English-born Trinidad international Chris Birchall
was sent off in the 53rd minute.
The New York Red Bulls, with former France and Arsenal
striker Thierry Henry back from injury, welcomed newly-acquired
Canada international Dwayne De Rosario to the line-up for their
home game against Houston.
The midfielder, acquired on Friday from Toronto, came off
the bench and had an instant impact setting up their opening
goal in the 47th minute for pacey Jamaican Dane Richards.
But Houston fought back just three minutes later through
Cam Weaver to force a draw for the Dynamo.
The Seattle Sounders remain winless after four games as
they were held to a 2-2 draw at San Jose while the expansion
Portland Timbers picked up their first point in a 1-1 draw on
the road at the undefeated New England Revolution.
Toronto, playing their first game without former captain
and fan favourite De Rosario, gave up a goal in the 2nd minute
against Chivas USA but managed to battle back for a 1-1 draw.

runners-up FC Dallas 2-0.
