MetroStars get even in goalfest

Cornell Glen finished what he started, scoring his second goal of the game in the 90th minute to give the visiting MetroStars a 5-5 tie with the San Jose Earthquakes last night.

Glen, making his first Major League Soccer start, also had an assist for the MetroStars (2-1-2).

Former Revolution striker Chris Brown scored his first goal for San Jose (1-2-3), which squandered a 5-3 lead.

Glen opened the scoring in the sixth minute with his first MLS goal, and set up Fabian Taylor's goal in the 45th minute. Landon Donovan had a hand in all of San Jose's first-half goals, assisting on two and scoring one.

Galaxy 3, Burn 1 -- Jovan Kirovski scored two goals in the second half as Los Angeles (3-1-2) overtook Dallas (2-1-2) and snapped a 17-game regular-season road winless streak dating to 2002. Kirovski scored in the 57th and 65th minutes to erase a 1-0 Burn lead.

The go-ahead goal came when Kirovski took a pass from Carlos Ruiz and fired a shot between two defenders and into the left corner of the net. Chris Albright also assisted.

Kirovski tied the game in the 57th minute on a header from outside the box.

Dallas took the early lead on Toni Nhleko's second goal of the season in the sixth minute.

Ruiz got his sixth goal of the season in the fourth minute of stoppage time.

Crew 1, United 1 -- Ross Paule scored on a penalty kick a minute into second-half stoppage time to give Columbus a tie in Washington. Crew defender Frankie Hejduk set up the tying goal by drawing a yellow card on Brandon Prideaux, who pushed him down from behind in the box. Paule then beat Nick Rimando to tie it for Columbus (0-3-2).

Dema Kovalenko opened the scoring for United (1-2-3). Freddy Adu, 14, made his first start at home for United, playing 60 minutes before giving way to Alecko Eskandarian.

Fire 2, Wizards 2 -- Dipsy Selolwane scored past Tony Meola in the 73d minute, lifting Chicago (2-1-3) to a tie at Kansas City (2-1-2).
