My Major League Soccer power rankings — week 14

LA Galaxy Logo.jpg1. (1) Los Angeles Galaxy 8-2-7

Has allowed four goals in the final 10′ of games, conceding a total of seven points.

2. (3) Philadelphia Union 7-4-4

3. (2) FC Dallas 6-3-4

Allowed four goals to K.C. Allowed that many in its prev. nine games combined.

4. (6) New York Red Bulls 5-2-7

Watch out. Superstar forward Thierry Henry (seven goals, three assists) is starting to heat up.

5. (4) Real Salt Lake 6-3-3

Argentine forward Fabian Espindola is seemingly the only one keeping this team afloat.

6. (5) Seattle Sounders FC 5-4-7

It’s been 623 minutes since a forward has scored, dating seven games to May 7.

7. (8) San Jose Earthquakes 5-4-4

Hat-trick hero Steven Lenhart earned MLS Player of the Week after a 4-2 road win in D.C.

8. (7) Colorado Rapids 5-3-7

The run of consecutive ties is mercifully over at six after winning late in Portland.

9. (12) Columbus Crew 4-4-6

Big midweek win was followed up with a punchless home loss to Chicago (0 shots on goal).

10. (9) D.C. United 4-4-6

Hopes to break a five-game road losing streak to RSL. Outscored 13-3 in those games.

11. (10) Chivas USA 4-5-5

Marcos Mondaini has scored in both games since returning from a four-game suspension.

12. (14) Houston Dynamo 4-5-6

Home opener was a scoreless snoozer, but exploded for four goals to beat FCD on the road.

15. (13) New England Revolution 3-7-4

11 goals scored is by far a league low. Only Shalrie Joseph (4) has more than one.

16. (17) Chicago Fire 2-4-8

Defense has earned three straight shutouts, but the offense has just one goal in that span.

17. (16) Toronto FC 2-5-8

Last-minute goal by Alan Gordon had to feel nice against the L.A. Galaxy, his former team.

18. (18) Vancouver Whitecaps FC 1-6-8

Hassli’s wonderstrike might earn MLS Goal of the Year, but the winless streak is now at 14.
