TORONTO -- Chris Tierney scored in second-half stoppage time to complete New England's comeback and lift the Revolution to a 2-2 draw with Toronto FC on Saturday.
With the Revolution trailing 2-0, Blake Brettschneider cut the deficit in half in the 71st minute as he knocked in a rebound past Toronto goalie Milos Kocic, before Tierney secured a point for the visitors.
Danny Koevermans put Toronto ahead in the 4th minute and Ryan Johnson doubled the lead in the 42nd, before it gave up a two-goal lead for the second straight game. Houston scored two late goals to pull to a 3-3 draw against Toronto on Wednesday.
Both Toronto goals came from headers inside the 18-yard box on pinpoint crosses from the left side by defender and Canadian international Ashtone Morgan.
Union 4, Sporting 0 At Chester, Pennsylvania, Jack McInerney scored twice and Philadelphia beat Sporting Kansas City 4-0 to win its first match in six.
Lionard Pajoy converted a penalty in the 81st minute after Antoine Hoppenot was fouled in the box before Hoppenot added a fourth for the Union in the 87th.
Philadelphia entered the game having scored a league-low eight goals. However, McInerney got the Union on the board early with a goal in the second minute. He added his second in the 43rd minute.
Philadelphia won for the first time since beating Chivas USA 1-0 on April 21 and move to 11 points, six clear of bottom-placed Toronto, who drew 2-2 at home to New England.
Impact 4, Dynamo 2 At Montreal, Hassoun Camara got his first MLS goal and Patrice Bernier scored a second-half penalty to lift Montreal to a 4-2 victory over Houston.
Sanna Nyassi and Davy Arnaud scored first-half goals for Montreal, but goals to Houston duo Will Bruin and Brad Davis saw the teams locked at 2-2 at the break.
The Impact restored its lead when Arnaud flicked Martins' corner kick to Camara, who scored with a header at the far post in the 60th minute. After Felipe went down in the penalty area following a light shove from Geoff Cameron eight minutes later, Bernier converted the penalty kick.
Houston's Adam Moffat received a straight red card after bringing Montreal's Felipe Martins down in the 73rd minute to end any chance of a Houston comeback.
