MLS Monday: Everything you need to know about Matchweek 14

LAFC squeak past San Jose, Matt Turner lets in a howler, Inter Miami win a game

MLS: Philadelphia Union at New England Revolution
Keep your eye on the ball.

MLS is heading into the international break in good style: We’re 14-ish games into the season, and after this weekend’s games we’re getting a sense of which teams are going to make a run at the Supporters’ Shield and the MLS Cup.

Top Games

New England Revolution 1 - 1 Philadelphia Union
Philadelphia goalkeeping phenom Andre Blake made many good saves, but he couldn’t stop a penalty given for a handball in the box: Blake guess correctly but New England’s Gustavo Bou lashed it hard enough to go in. Later, New England goalkeeper Matt Turner ventured out of the box to get a ball, but a poor clearance allowed Philly to score in an open net: They’re not going to like that in North London. Philly only gets one point, so New York City FC jumps over them on the table with a game in hand.

New Jersey Red Bulls 4 - 1 DC United
New Jersey’s Luquinhas scored the first goal of the game: DC United goalkeeper Bill Hamid and his defensive line saved two shots before the ball slips into the net on the third attempt. Luquinhas slots one into the upper left corner for his second goal of the game, then Lewis Morgan scores to seal New Jersey’s first win at Red Bull Arena this season. United’s Ola Kamara scores a consolation goal in the 87th minute, then DC defender José Antonio Alfaro Vázquez scores an own-goal three minutes later.

LAFC 3 - 2 San Jose Earthquakes
LAFC opens the scoring with a penalty shot in the seventh minute: Cristian Arango gets goalkeeper JT Marcinkowski to go the wrong way. Six minutes later, LAFC’s Ryan Hollingshead’s left-footed shot takes a deflection and just sneaks in past the post. San Jose’s Jeremy Ebobisse’s brace draws the game even, but it isn’t enough: LAFC’s Brian Rodriguez scores a goal just after the start of the second half.

Goal of the Week

A glancing header from Inter Miami’s Leo Campana and the once-hapless team gets a home win over Portland Timbers to climb into seventh place: Not a bad way for the elegant striker to celebrate getting called up to the Ecuadorian national team.
