Dallas (10-7-6) added to the lead in the 55th minute. A long cross for a header attempt went awry, but Fabian Castillo hammered the loose ball past Irwin.

The Rapids’ Gaby Torres drew a penalty in the box in the 86th minute and converted the penalty kick to cap the scoring.

Toronto FC 3, Crew 2 • In Columbus, Ohio, Luke Moore scored in the 84th minute to give Toronto a 3-2 victory over Columbus.

Moore’s winner came on a header off a corner kick by Collen Warner. It came just three minutes after Columbus (6-8-9) tied it at 2 when Justin Meram’s cross confused Toronto goalkeeper Joe Bendik and ended up in the net.

In the 43rd minute, Gilberto opened the scoring for Toronto, depositing a perfectly placed feed by Moore past goalkeeper Steve Clark with his left foot. Then in second minute of first-half stoppage time, Columbus was awarded a penalty kick and Federico Higuain made no mistake, burying the shot in the lower right corner.

Toronto (9-7-5) broke the tie in the 59th minute. Tony Tchani’s original shot was blocked by Clark, but Jonathan Osorio made good on the rebound to make it 2-1.

Union 2, Impact 1 • In Chester, Pa., Sebastien Le Toux scored two goals and Philadelphia beat Montreal, handing the Impact a seventh straight loss.

Le Toux four goals in his last four games and 10 overall this season Philadelphia (6-8-9).

Montreal (3-14-5) has conceded multiple goals in six consecutive matches and hasn’t won since June 29 against Houston.

Le Toux intercepted a defender’s header to the goalkeeper in the 12th minute and touched it home to open the scoring. He left-footed a goal in traffic in the 63rd minute, catching goalkeeper Troy Perkins diving the wrong way. Le Toux also had a shot sail just over the crossbar two minutes later.
