Seattle • Chad Barrett scored off a wild scramble in the penalty area in the final moments of second half-stoppage time to give the Seattle Sounders a 1-0 victory over defending champion Sporting Kansas City on Saturday in the Major League Soccer opener.

Seattle shocked Kansas City with a goal in stoppage time for the fifth time in the past eight matches. Barrett scored in his Sounders debut after Clint Dempsey’s header clanged off the crossbar and goalkeeper Eric Kronberg was caught out of his net.

It was the first match played with replacement officials after Major League Soccer’s referees and other on-field officials were locked out Friday.

Dynamo 4, Revolution 0 • In Houston, Will Bruin scored twice and added an assist to help Houston rout New England.

Bruin opened the scoring 1:04 into the game. Kofi Sarkodie gave Bruin a pass in the upper box, Bruin settled it and sent it inside the near post from 16 yards. The goal was the second-fastest in Houston history, behind Craig Waibel’s goal at 47 seconds against Colorado on Oct. 14, 2006.

Bruin made it 2-0 in the 13th minute, taking a cross from Corey Ashe and one-timing it into the center net from the upper right goalkeeper’s box.

Whitecaps 4, Red Bulls 1 • In Vancouver, British Columbia, Kenny Miller scored twice and Vancouver beat New York in the season opener before a sellout crowd of 21,000 at B.C. Place Stadium. Vancouver gave Carl Robinson a victory in his first game as the team’s head coach.
