DALLAS -- Ariel Graziani's injury-time goal gave the Burn a 3-2 MLS overtime victory Saturday over the Chicago Fire.

Graziani took Bobby Rhine's pass just inside the penalty box and knocked a shot into the left corner for his first goal of the season to complete a comeback.

Dallas trailed 2-0 with less than 10 minutes to play in regulation before goals by Rhine and Jason Kreis forced overtime.

Rhine made it 2-1 with eight minutes to play, and Kreis tied it in the closing seconds of regulation with a free kick.

Carlos Bocanegra scored the first goal for Chicago on a header off a corner kick three minutes before halftime. Chicago's second goal came in the 81st minute, when Jamar Beasley put in a pass from Dema Kovalenko.

D.C. 2, NEW ENGLAND 1: Abdul Thompson Conteh scored twice to lead host United.

Conteh's second snapped a 1-1 tie in the 61st minute as D.C. dealt the Revolution its third straight loss to open the season.

KANSAS CITY 3, COLUMBUS 0: Chris Brown and Matt McKeon scored goals three minutes apart in the second half for the visiting Wizards.

Brown gave Kansas City a 2-0 lead in the 53rd minute, moments after the Crew's Tenywa Bonseu hit the crossbar on a long shot.

In the 56th minute, the Crew's Mike Clark turned the ball over at the top of the Columbus penalty box and Matt McKeon immediately knocked a shot over goalkeeper Tom Presthus to make it 3-0.

WORLD CUP: Nigeria put itself in danger of failing to qualify for the 2002 event, losing 1-0 at Sierra Leone in African qualifying. Senegal and Morocco both won to remain tied for first in Group C. In Asian qualifying, Iraq and Kazakstan won to stay tied atop Group 6.

ITALIAN LEAGUE: Fernando Couto, a defender who plays for Lazio, tested positive for a steroid and faces up to a two-year suspension from league and international play. The captain of the Portuguese national team denied taking any banned substance.

LIGHTNING STRIKE: Lightning struck a suburban field during a club game at Melbourne, Australia, sending six players to the hospital with minor injuries.


ATLANTA 0, NEW YORK 0: The teams couldn't score despite having prolific scorers in Sun Wen and Tiffeny Milbrett.

The crowd of 20,170 was energized most when Chinese star Sun entered for host Atlanta in the 78th minute. The forward, voted FIFA co-player of the century, did not start because of a left knee that required surgery four months ago.

Milbrett, whose 83 goals rank No. 4 on the U.S. women's career list, took New York's final shot in the 85th minute.

BOSTON 1, CAROLINA 0: Maren Meinert scored in the first half as the visiting Breakers won the opener for both teams. The Courage nearly tied the score in final minute but Silvana Burtini's shot hit the post.
