Kansas City, Kan. • Soony Saad scored twice, his first goals in almost two years, and Sporting Kansas City moved into first place in the Eastern Conference with a 3-0 victory over shorthanded Toronto FC on Saturday night.

Claudio Bieler also scored for Sporting (9-5-6), which ran its unbeaten streak to five in front of a Sporting Park-record crowd of 21,126. Toronto (2-9-7), which played a man down after Reggie Lambe was given a straight red card in the 56th minute, is winless in its last four.

Saad put Sporting up 1-0 in the 21st minute, scoring from outside the area on an assist from Seth Sinovic, and made it 2-0 in the 51st with a putback of Graham Zusi's saved shot. They were his first goals in MLS since he scored on his league debut on Aug. 17, 2011.

New York 4, Montreal 0 • Thierry Henry had a goal and two assists to give the New York Red Bulls a 4-0 victory over the Montreal Impact in Harrison, N.J. on Saturday.

Eric Alexander, Tim Cahill and Peguy Luyindula also scored for the Red Bulls (9-7-4, 31 points), who climbed into a second-place tie with the Impact (9-5-4, 31 points) in the MLS' Eastern Conference.

Houston 2, New England 1 • Midfielder Adam Moffatt scored two second-half goals and the Houston Dynamo earned a 2-1 victory over the New England Revolution in Foxborough, Mass. on Saturday.

Moffatt regained the lead for Houston (8-6-5) in the 79th minute, a right-footed shot atop the penalty box area, which banged off the right post and off New England goalkeeper Bobby Shuttleworth into the net.
