It was Johnson’s third shutout of the season and Vancouver goalkeeper David Ousted’s fifth. They each made two saves.

Chicago is 3-5-12, and Vancouver 6-4-11. The teams rank first and second in MLS in ties. It marks the third 0-0 tie for Vancouver and second for Chicago.

New England 3, Colorado 0 • Lee Nguyen had a goal and an assist and the New England Revolution beat the Colorado Rapids to end an eight-game losing streak.

New England had only scored four goals during the losing streak that was one short of the club record.

In the 10th minute, New England (8-11-2) took its first lead in a match since May 24. Nguyen’s shot inside the box deflected off Drew Moor for an own goal.

Thomas Piermayr was handed his second yellow card for Colorado (8-7-6) in the 74th minute for a rough challenge just outside the box. Nguyen’s ensuing free kick cleared the wall and landed in the upper right corner of the net.

Four minutes later, Nguyen sent a through ball to Kelyn Rowe, who took three dribbles and found the back of the net.

D.C. 3, Toronto 0 • All-star goalkeeper Bill Hamid tied a career high with eight saves for his fifth shutout of the season in D.C. United’s victory.
