My MLS power rankings — Week 22

Here are other MLS power rankings from ESPN.com, MLSsoccer.com and ProSoccerTalk.

*     *     *

Team (prev. rank) Comment
1. Montreal (5) Late win vs. Kansas City vaults Impact to the top, but mainly because everyone else lost
2. Sporting K.C. (1) All eyes leaguewide turn to Sporting Park on Wednesday for the MLS All-Star Game
3. Portland (2) Has lost two of its last four games after losing just once in its first 17 of the year (7-1-9)
4. N.Y. Red Bulls (7) Tim Cahill injury, after being on receiving end of an awful tackle, soured a dramatic win
5. Real Salt Lake (3) Not often you see a brilliant hat-trick, like Alvaro Saborio’s, come in heartbreaking defeat
6. L.A. Galaxy (4) Probably not happy Omar Gonzalez got called up but was hardly used in the Gold Cup
7. Philadelphia (9) Snub no more: Jack McInerney was a late All-Star addition as an injury replacement
8. Colorado (10) Hendry Thomas escaped what should have been a red card to score the winner vs. Galaxy
9. FC Dallas (8) Heads to Seattle this weekend on a tailspin of an eight-game winless streak (0-3-5)
10. Vancouver (6) Wasn’t smart of Jun Marques Davidson to head butt someone right in front of the ref
11. New England (12) Diego Fagundez is up to seven goals, 11 for his career, and he’s just 18 years old
12. Sounders FC (13) DP Obafemi Martins has a goal or assist in seven of the team’s eight wins this year
13. Houston (11) Went 36 games at home without defeat, but fortunes have changed (one home win in five)
14. San Jose (15) The polarizing Steven Lenhart made things worse with a “TwerkQuake” goal celebration
15. Chicago (14) Mike Magee has 13 goals this year; the rest of his Fire teammates have combined for 17
16. Toronto FC (18) Scored in the 87th minute, then again in the last minute of stoppage time to stun the Crew
17. Columbus (16) Hunt Sports Group, owners since ’96, sold the team Tuesday to Precourt Sports Ventures
18. Chivas USA (17) Erick Torres looks to be a keeper, but that might mean a recall to Chivas de Guadalajara
19. D.C. United (19) New addition Luis Silva has scored two goals in two games, of course both were losses
