On Wednesday evening four games played out in Major League Soccer as the league took advantage of a lull in other professional sports across the U.S.

Below is  a brief roundup of the four matches, as midweek MLS action helped to fill our soccer void now the World Cup has ended.

There were wins for Sporting KC, Philadelphia and LA, while Canadian foes Toronto and Vancouver battled it out in Ontario.

Here’s the scoop on what went down.

Columbus 1-2 Sporting KC

An eventful match played out at Crew Stadium as SKC grabbed a late, late win. Two red cards saw Aurelien Collin and Will Trapp sent off in a feisty encounter. C.J. Sapong gave Sporting the lead but an own goal from Igor Julião made it 1-1. Deep into stoppage time Benny Feilhaber scored the winner in dramatic fashion.

LA Galaxy 5-1 New England

New England have lost five-straight as they were battered by a rampant Galaxy side. Robbie Keane smashed in a worldy in his double, Gyasi Zardes also scored twice and Stefan Ishizaki completed the rout. Lee Nguyen with the consolation for the Revs.

Philadelphia Union 3-1 New York Red Bulls

Conor Casey, Sebastian Le Toux and Fred put Philadelphia ahead and MLS-leading scorer Bradley Wright-Phillips bagged another for the Red Bulls. The Union grabbed their first win in seven home games.

Toronto FC 1-1 Vancouver Whitecaps

Jermain Defoe rescued Toronto FC, again, as the Reds fought back to bag a point against Canadian rivals Vancouver. The ‘Caps took the lead through Darren Mattocks just after the break, then Defoe scored off a PK 15 minutes later.

    Joe, I don’t know why you even bothered to post this “article.” I got 10 times this much material from Goal.com and the SKC website. I don’t know what happened to you people, but ever since Steve left, the MLS coverage is darned near non-existent. No pregames, combined postgames (see above), no more weekly rankings, no analyses of who is buying or selling, nothing. I know you people all have a woodie for futbol, but there are those of us in the US who like US teams playing the US version in US stadia; i.e., the MLS. I guess I’ll have to dump NBC altogether.
