Roland Lamah inspired FC Dallas to a huge win in MLS, while New York City left it late on Saturday.
Lamah needed just 31 minutes to score a hat-trick at Toyota Stadium, setting up Dallas' 6-2 thrashing of Real Salt Lake.
The Belgian opened the scoring in the eighth minute, tapping in a cross from Michael Barrios at the back post.
Lamah doubled the lead midway through the half, finishing calmly after receiving a pass from Maximiliano Urruti.
Just after the half-hour mark, he had his hat-trick after being played in behind by Carlos Gruezo.
