Tim Cahill's stoppage-time winner against the Los Angeles Galaxy lifted the New York Red Bulls three points clear at the top of Major League Soccer's Eastern Conference on Sunday.

The Australia midfielder headed a Juninho free-kick past Carlo Cudicini in the 91st minute at Red Bull Arena to stretch New York's advantage over second-placed Sporting Kansas City, who were held to a 1-1 draw at DC United.

Ethan White's 61st-minute own goal looked to have set Sporting on course for victory at RFK Stadium, but Kyle Porter converted a cross from substitute Chris Pontius four minutes later to earn bottom-placed DC a share of the spoils - and end their seven-match losing streak.

Also on Sunday night, Ned Grabavoy started and finished the scoring as Real Salt Lake stormed to a 4-1 success over Chivas USA at the Home Depot Center to climb to second in the Western Conference standings.

Joao Plata's 48th-minute effort doubled the visitors' advantage after Grabavoy's first-half opener and, although Jorge Villafana halved the deficit soon after, further goals from substitute Robbie Findley (78) and Grabavoy (90) sealed an emphatic away win.
