Seattle • The Seattle Sounders failed to deliver on coach Sigi Schmid's victory guarantee, tying the New England Revolution 0-0 on Saturday despite dominating most of the play.

In remarks to reporters Friday, Schmid promised that the Sounders (0-3-2), off to the worst start in the five-year history of the franchise, would win for the first time this season.

The Sounders have scored only two goals, and both of those scorers — Eddie Johnson (hamstring) and Brad Evans (calf) — were sidelined with injuries Saturday.

New England (1-2-2) has gone without a goal for four-plus games totaling 388 minutes since scoring in the 62nd minute of a season-opening 1-0 victory at Chicago on March 9.

Fc Dallas 1, Galaxy 0 • In Fricso, Texas, George John scored in the 87th minute to lift FC Dallas past Los Angeles.

John directed a header into the left corner from less than 5 yards, then hit the back of his head on the right post, opening a cut.

Dallas improved to 4-0-0 at home and 5-1-1 overall. Los Angeles dropped to 2-1-2.

In the 69th minute Dallas goalkeeper Raul Fernandez slid a few feet to his left to deflect Landon Donovan's penalty kick. Donovan has scored more career goals against Dallas that any other player with 17.

New York 2, D.C. United 0 • In Washington, Thierry Henry scored in his first start in a month, and ex-Real Salt Lake defender Jamison Olave added a goal.

Henry, back at full strength after a knee injury, opened the scoring in the 29th minute, and Olave scored in the 36th. —
