COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Dante Washington's hat trick, combined with former South Florida star Jeff Cunningham's two goals, powered the Crew past the beleaguered Tampa Bay Mutiny 6-1 Saturday night at Crew Stadium.

Columbus played with a man advantage over the last 78 minutes.

Eric Quill's 55th minute goal snapped a 294-minute scoring drought for the Mutiny, which nonetheless tied its worst loss ever (6-1 at Los Angeles, Sept. 7, 1997).

The Mutiny lost its seventh straight and extended its winless skid to 10 games.

In the 12th minute, Carlos Valderrama was ejected for spitting. Seconds earlier, he was involved in a play with Crew midfielder John Harkes, who was cautioned by referee Noel Kenny for a dangerous play.

Valderrama was red-carded and will miss Saturday's game against D.C. United at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa.

The Crew held a 68-32 percent possession advantage.

After Quill's goal cut the Mutiny's deficit to 2-1, Cunningham iced the game in the 68th minute, burying Washington's deflected shot past goalkeeper Scott Garlick for a 3-1 lead.

N.Y./N.J. 0, SAN JOSE 0: Visiting San Jose extended its team-record unbeaten streak to 10 games.

Neither Earthquakes goalkeeper Joe Cannon nor MetroStars counterpart Tim Howard was seriously tested as San Jose improved to 6-0-4 in its past 10.

Cannon had four saves, the toughest coming late in overtime on a header by Steve Jolley off a corner kick. He also had to stop an off-balance shot from the top of the box by Rodrigo Faria in the 36th minute.

New York/New Jersey had two good chances that missed the net. Adolfo Valencia hit the side of the net with a bad-angle shot in close in the 35th minute and Cordt Weinstein, playing in his first MLS game, missed the net from 10 yards with less than 10 minutes to go.

D.C. 3, KANSAS CITY 0: Santino Quaranta scored two goals to lead the visiting United.

Abdul Thompson-Conteh opened the scoring in the 53rd minute when he scored off a header on a pass from Chris Albright. The goal was Thompson-Conteh's eighth of the season.

United took a 2-0 lead two minutes later when midfielder Bryan Namoff passed to Quaranta, who scored on a tap-in. Quaranta scored his second goal in the 63rd minute from 14 yards.


BOSTON 1, WASHINGTON 0: Kristine Lilly scored in the second half to lead the Breakers, who won for the first time in five home matches. Lilly scored on a long feed from Allison Kemp, gathering the pass at the top of the box and beating Freedom goalkeeper Siri Mullinix to her left.
