Vancouver (7-4-11) also took advantage of an own goal by Sporting defender Igor Juliao to hand Kansas City (11-6-6) its first loss in Major League Soccer play since May 31.

The Whitecaps took the lead in the 17th minute when Juliao and Kansas City goalkeeper Andy Gruenebaum got their signals crossed after Vancouver’s Pedro Morales lofted a long ball towards goal. Juliao tried to head a pass back toward Gruenebaum, but it dribbled over the line.

Vancouver doubled the advantage in the 30th minute when Morales and Mattocks pounced on a Kansas City turnover in midfield and broke back the other way. Morales drew a defender towards him before squaring the ball to Mattocks, who made no mistake in slotting a low shot past a helpless Gruenebaum for his sixth of the season.

FIRE 1, RED BULLS 0

BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. • Sean Johnson made four saves for his fourth shutout of the season and Mike Magee scored in Chicago’s victory over New York.

The Red Bulls (6-7-10) had a chance to tie it in the 60th minute, but Johnson calmly saved a right-footed half-volley from Eric Alexander from just inside the box.
