John McCarthy finished with five saves for Los Angeles and Stefan Frei stopped three shots for Seattle as the Galaxy and Sounders played to a scoreless draw. McCarthy had four saves and Frei stopped the only shot he faced in the first half. Frei became available to play for the Sounders (2-5-4) after the red card he received in a match against D.C. United last weekend was rescinded by an independent review panel. LA (5-2-4) played without Riqui Puig, who missed the match because of an accumulation of yellow cards.

Tomás Chancalay scored in the second half and newly signed Aljaž Ivačič made it stand up in his first start in goal for New England as the Revolution edged the Chicago Fire 1-0. The Revolution (2-7-1) snapped a three-match losing streak after the start was delayed an hour because of inclement weather. Chancalay’s goal was unassisted in the 62nd minute. Both his goals this season have come in the last two matches. Ivačič saved three shots to earn a clean sheet in his first start for New England.
