MLS Week 5 WRAP – ALL matches reports and VIDEO highlights

126,280 was the total attendance in all 8 MLS matches this weekend. The biggest crowd of 20,809 fans came to Empire Field in Vancouver to support the WhiteCaps. On the other hand in Columbus rain and windy weather stopped fans to go out and the Crew played in front of only 7,695. Portland Timbers and FC Dallas produced the highest scoring game last weekend, but WhiteCaps FC managed to get their historic first scoreless draw in MLS in wide-open battle against Chivas USA. Both teams can be blame for seriously lowering scoring average.
