The Seattle Sounders are still streaking, with the club running their winning streak to an MLS record eight games with a 3-1 result against Sporting Kansas City.
Diego Rubio put the visiting side in front two minutes in, but Raul Ruidíaz pulled Seattle level before a Graham Zuzi own goal gifted the Sounders the lead. Nicolas Lodeiro struck from the spot to make sure of the result before the hour mark.
The LA Galaxy had no such luck as they took a 6-2 beating at the hands of Real Salt Lake despite going a goal in front in the first minute.
Ashley Cole and Zlatan Ibrahimovic set up Jonathan dos Santos for the early strike only to see Salt Lake respond with goals from Albert Rusnak and Damir Kreilach before halftime.
Jefferson Savarino doubled the lead shortly after the break before Kreilach struck again to put the home side up 4-1.
Romain Alessandrini gave the visiting side some hope in the 63rd but Rusnak scored his second on the night and Kreilach his third to make sure there would be no comeback.
Bacary Sagna netted for the Montreal Impact in a 3-0 win, with Rod Fanni opening the scoring and Ignacio Piatti scoring in second-half stoppage time.
