    Led by Thierry Henry, the New York Red Bulls beat the Columbus Crew, 4-1, while a Dom Dwyer brace lifted Sporting Kansas City to a 2-1 win over the Impact de Montreal.

    CONCACAF.com recaps the domestic action from Major League Soccer’s representatives in the 2014/15 CONCACAF Champions League (CCL).  Liga MX play resumes on July 18 with the opening of the 2014 Apertura.

    French legend Thierry Henry was in rare form, scoring a goal and setting up three others to lead the host New York Red Bulls (23 points) to a 4-1 win over the 10-man Columbus Crew (20 points) on Saturday.

    Henry assisted on the game’s first goal, slotting a pass to Bradley Wright-Phillips, who scored his league-leading 15th goal of the season in the 17th minute.

    After Adam Bedell equalized in the 39th minute, Henry put the home side in front at the break as he pounced on a rebound of a Wright-Phillips saved shot at the stroke of halftime.

    Henry then paved the way for Lloyd Sam to score his second goal of the season in the 56th minute and did the same on Eric Alexander’s insurance tally in the first minute of second-half stoppage time.  The goal came a few minutes after Bernardo Anor was sent off for his second bookable offense.

    In a battle of CCL participants, Dom Dwyer scored a goal in each half to lead visiting Sporting Kansas City (29 points) to a 2-1 win over the Impact de Montreal (14 points) at Stade Saputo on Saturday.

    The 23-year-old latched onto a long throw by Matt Besler and headed it in for his fifth goal of the year against the Impact in the fourth minute. 

    Marco Di Vaio leveled for Montreal in the 28th minute, but Dwyer netted his second just one minute before full time, capitalizing on a defensive miscue to secure three points for Kansas City, which retained second place in the Eastern Conference.

    Eddie Johnson and Luis Silva scored inside the opening half hour to lead D.C. United (31 points) to a 2-1 win over the host San Jose Earthquakes (16 points) on Friday at Buck Shaw Stadium.

    Johnson put the Eastern Conference leaders on top in the 12th minute, converting from the penalty spot after Brandon Barklage was called for a handball in the box.

    Silva doubled D.C. United’s lead on 25 minutes, sliding to connect with a Chris Rolfe cross at the edge of the six-yard box. 

    In his first game back from the World Cup, United States international Chris Wondolowski halved the deficit in the 39th minute to snap the Quakes goalless drought at 354 minutes.

    Clint Dempsey and Marco Pappa scored one goal apiece in the final 16 minutes of the second half to lead the Seattle Sounders (38 points) to a 2-0 win over the visiting Portland Timbers (21 points) in front of 64,207 fans at CenturyLink Field on Sunday night.

    After a scoreless first half, Dempsey scored what proved to be the game-winner in the 74th minute, slotting in the rebound following a pair of shots saved by Jamaica goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts. 

    Pappa added an insurance goal three minutes from full time off a feed from Lamar Neagle for the Western Conference leader.
