Kansas City, Kan. • Djimi Traore scored late in stoppage time and the Seattle Sounders stunned Sporting Kansas City 1-0 on Wednesday night.

The teams had played a defensive-minded game most of the night, but Seattle finally got an opportunity when Zach Scott threw the ball in with about four minutes gone in stoppage time.

The ball was deflected toward the net, and Sporting KC defender Aurelien Collin whiffed trying to clear it, allowing Traore to slam it into the back of the net for the game's only goal.

The goal allowed Seattle to improve to 6-0-1 in their last seven meetings.

It also spoiled the return of Sporting KC's Kei Kamara, who rejoined his MLS club as a second-half substitute after spending the first half of the season on loan to Norwich City.

Red Bulls 2, Impact 1 • At Harrison, N.J., Thierry Henry scored on a spectacular bicycle kick in the 88th minute for his second goal of the game and New York won its fourth in a row with a victory over Montreal.

Marco Di Vaio scored for Montreal in the 90th minute and almost tied the game a minute later, hitting both goalposts on one shot.

However, Henry's fifth goal of the season was all anyone will remember. Juninho took a corner kick from the right side that Red Bulls defender Markus Holgersson flicked toward the left post. Henry went head over heels, bringing 11,892 fans to their feet when it found the back of the net.

Dynamo 4, D.C. United 0 • At Washington, Will Bruin continued his dominance over D.C. United, scoring two goals and assisting on a third to lead Houston.

Bruin has scored nine times in nine career appearances against United. Giles Barnes and Andrew Driver also scored for the Dynamo. —
