Paid Their Dues: Mapp's Revenge

Mapp in his Union glory days. - Chris Gardner

Two former Union players hurt Philly's playoff chances; Porfirio Lopez is human.

Justin Mapp's 84th minute assist on Karl Ouimette's winner put a serious dent in his former club's playoff hopes. The assist was Mapp's fourth against the Union since being selected by Montreal in the 2011 Expansion Draft. The Impact control their own playoff destiny, as a win against Toronto on Saturday would likely give them the third playoff spot in the East.

Chris Seitz earned just the third clean sheet of his MLS career on Saturday, as Dallas defeated Seattle by two. Andrew Jacobson also played a full game, picking up a yellow card in the 77th. Dallas will wrap up their season in San Jose on Saturday, and will hope to have hired a new coach some time in the next six weeks, following Hyndman's resignation.

Jordan Harvey was on the field for the entirety of Vancouver's 3-2 loss in Commerce City. The win knocks the Caps out of playoff contention.

Bakary Soumare helped the Fire preserve a clean sheet against visiting Toronto FC. The win makes things just that much tougher for his former club in their quest for the playoffs, but Chicago could prevent the Red Bulls from winning the Supporters' Shield this weekend as a nice consolation prize. A win on Sunday or anything other than a Houston win in DC would put the Fire in the postseason.

Shea Salinas suited up for San Jose in the latest installment of the Cali Clásico. Despite the draw, San Jose is still able to make their playoffs. If Vancouver can shutout the Rapids this week, the Earthquakes would require a simple 13-0 victory to keep their season alive.

Michael Orozco played the whole match in Puebla's 2-0 win over Atlas.

Porfirio Lopez and Alajuelense were just seconds away from another clean sheet, when Puntarenas forward Daniel Colindres notched the winner in the 91st minute. LDA will now travel to Mexico to take on Club América in CCL play.

Faryd Mondragón got the start in goal for Deportivo Cali's 1-0 loss to Millonarios. Los Verdiblancos now sit in fifth place, twelve points behind league leaders Atlético Nacional.

Freddy Adu spent the weekend working on his hand motions.

In Germany, Kai Herdling saw nine minutes off the bench in Hoffenheim's 2-1 loss to third-placed Bayer Leverkusen. Hoffenheim now sit only four points above the relegation zone, recording only one win in their last seven Bundesliga matches.
