CARSON, Calif. (AP) Jorge Villafana's goal in the 69th minute snapped a 600-minute scoreless streak and also dealt a blow to FC Dallas' playoff hopes as Chivas USA forged a 1-1 draw Sunday.
With the point earned, FC Dallas sits four points behind Vancouver for the fifth and final Western Conference playoff spot, and each team has two games remaining. Vancouver would secure the playoff spot with a victory or an FC Dallas loss.
Villafana's goal tied the game and ended the second longest drought in league history.
FC Dallas Blas Perez opened the scoring in the eighth minute when Perez finished off a rebound from a shot by David Ferreira. Meanwhile, Villafana's tally came off a feed from Miller Bolanos.
SPORTING KANSAS CITY 1, CREW 1
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Eddie Gaven's header in the first minute of stoppage time gave the Crew a draw with Sporting Kansas City, salvaging an important point for Columbus as it tries to land a playoff spot.
With 49 points, the Crew are one out of playoff position. Houston is fifth in the Eastern Conference on 50 points, and each has two games left to play.
Gaven scored to the near right post off a pass from Emilio Renteria to continue a trend of late dramatics. The Crew's past five winning goals have come in the 86th minute or later. Sporting Kansas City (17-7-7) took the lead in the 10th minute when C.J. Sapong headed home his own rebound.
Kansas City has clinched a spot and opened a three-point lead over second-place Chicago in the East but is five back of San Jose for the overall points lead and home-field throughout the postseason.
The first big move of NBA Draft night - according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski - was to help Atlanta land Virginia's De'Andre Hunter.
Per Wojnarowski Atlanta has acquired the No. 4 pick from the Pelicans, which they got from the Lakers in the mega-deal for Anthony Davis, for the picks No. 8, 17, and 35. With that fourth overall selection, the Hawks plan to take Hunter.
Hunter, the reigning ACC Defensive Player of the Year and a member of UVA's national championship team this past season, was profiled in NBC Sports Washington's I Am The Prospect series.
In his interview with NBC Sports Washington, Hunter described what he expects draft night to be like for him and his family.
"Draft night's gonna be really emotional. I don't know if I'm gonna cry or not, but I know a few members of my family will be crying, so that'll probably get to me a little bit," Hunter said. "It's gonna be a great moment for not only me but for my family as well."
In another pre-draft trade, the Suns have acquired the No. 11 pick and forward Dario Saric from the Timberwolves for the No. 6 pick, per Wojnarowski.
