Revolution down D.C. United 2-0

Substitute Kenny Mansally scored in the 80th and 82nd minutes to give the New England Revolution to a 2-0 victory over D.C. United in Major League Soccer on Saturday.
Mansally, who entered in the 68th minute, redirected Chris Tierney's deflected cross past United goalkeeper Troy Perkins to put New England ahead. He doubled the lead moments later with a deft chip over Perkins' head from 20 meters or so away.
Chris Pontius missed United's best chance, heading Brandon Barklage's cross high in the 43rd minute. Barklage headed a good chance wide in the 61st minute.
In other matches Saturday, the Chicago Fire drew 2-2 with the Colorado Rapids, while the New York Red Bulls downed the Seattle Sounders 1-0.
Omar Cummings opened the scoring for Colorado in the 15th minute at Commerce City, before former Fulham striker Colins Johns leveled it in the 26th.
Conor Casey scored from a 26th minute penalty to give the Rapids a 2-1 lead at halftime, but Brian McBride, also formerly of Fulham, scored the equalizer for Chicago with a penalty of his own in the 51st that beat Colorado keeper Matt Pickens to his left side.
At Seattle, Senegal-born forward Macoumba Kandji scored the lone goal with a left-footed strike past Sounders goalkeeper Kasey Keller in the 21st minute.
Steve Zakuani had the best chance for Seattle, but his shot from 15 meters out in the 69th minute was pushed aside by New York keeper Bouna Coundoul, who is also from Senegal.
