Chivas USA vs. Los Angeles Galaxy: In the final match up of the season between these two LA rivals, the Galaxy picked up a huge 4-0 victory over Chivas. Midfielder Juninho picked up two goals while Landon Donovan picked up a whopping four assists. For a full recap, click the match link above.

New England vs. Montreal Impact: Montreal traveled to Gillette Stadium with with only one road win in their first season as an MLS squad. Thanks to Sanna Nyassi, Montreal crossed the border back into Canada with their second road win under their belt. Nyassi picked up the winning goal in the 61st minute.

New York Red Bulls vs. Houston Dynamo: Just a week removed from their last clash in which they lost, the Red Bulls got a slice of revenge, defeating the Dynamo 2-0. Markus Holgersson picked up the first, while Jan Gunnar Solli came off the bench and scored the second in stoppage time.

Sporting Kansas City vs. DC United: Coming off their controversial Open Cup win, SKC didn't show any signs of fatigue, as they took over sole possession of first place in the East against DC. Graham Zusi picked up his first goal at Livestrong Sporting Park in 2012, but it was Teal Bunbury who picked up the game winner. Despite moving back into first, Kansas City will have to watch out for NY, who are one win away from taking back the top spot.

Vancouver Whitecaps vs. Real Salt Lake: In a bit of an upset, the Whitecaps took down Real Salt Lake 2-1. Both goals from Vancouver came in the second half, with Camilo capitalizing on a Real mistake and Dane Richards putting the game away with the second.

FC Dallas vs. Colorado Rapids: Dallas picked up a huge come from behind win against the Rapids this past Saturday. Colorado scored first, but three unanswered goals from Dallas sealed the deal. Colorado would pick up a second goal, but were unable to equalize.

San Jose Earthquakes vs. Seattle Sounders: Despite a lopsided victory over the Galaxy last week, Seattle seemed to still be reeling from their Open Cup loss, falling to the Quakes, 2-1. Simon Dawkins would score first for San Jose in the 71st, but Fredy Montero would equalize in the second minute of stoppage time. A draw? Not so much, as Steven Lenhart would pick up a stunning game winner for the Earthquakes in the 93rd.

Philadelphia Union vs. Chicago Fire: The Fire came to Philly and broke the Union's four game home winning streak, leaving PPL Park with a 3-1 victory. While the Union scored first off an own goal from Jalil Anibaba, the Fire would pick up two late first half goals. Chris Rolfe would pick up his second goal of the match in the 56th, giving Chicago the lopsided victory.

The East race is getting really interesting, with Kansas City, Houston and New York jockeying back and forth for that first place spot. SKC plays Toronto this Saturday, while Houston plays Columbus and New York plays Portland, both on Sunday, making all three of these matches this weeks match to watch out for. Dynamo/Crew and Kansas City/Toronto will be available on MLS Live while Timbers/Red Bulls will be broadcast nationally on Galavision at 7:00 p.m. ET Sunday.
