MLS 195 43 MLS Power Rankings: Week Two 31635496 Oh, Canada! Oh%2C+Canada%21 MLS

Canada has waited and waited for a good team since Toronto FC entered the league back in 2007. The three Canadian clubs have combined for just one playoff appearance – Vancouver's stumble to the finish last year – in nine attempts. If the opening stages of this season provide any indication, this year could finally yield genuine Canadian success. Montréal and Vancouver both racked up two wins from two to start the campaign, while TFC notched its first win over Sporting Kansas City last weekend. It is too early to suggest that any of those three teams will meet that standard this year, but the ardent fans north of the border at least have some reason to hope for the first time in quite a while:

 

Honorable mention:

 

11. Columbus Crew
12. Philadelphia Union
13. Toronto FC
14. Chivas USA
15. New York
16. FC Dallas
17. Portland Timbers
18. Chicago Fire
19. Colorado Rapids

MLS 195 43 MLS Power Rankings: Week Two 31630898 Los Angeles Galaxy Los+Angeles+Galaxy MLS

Los Angeles dispatched C.S. Herediano 4-1 on Wednesday night to book a place in the CONCACAF Champions League semifinals. The next step in that competition – a date with two-time defending champions Monterrey – presents a daunting challenge, but the Galaxy must tend to domestic matters first before concerning themselves with Humberto Suazo and company.

 

Next on the docket: Rivalry week brings the inevitable clash with fellow Home Depot Center tenants Chivas USA on Sunday Mar. 17.

MLS 195 43 MLS Power Rankings: Week Two 31630900 Montreal Impact Montreal+Impact MLS

A little tactical discipline and a lot of earnest endeavor propelled Montréal to a second straight away victory at Portland on Saturday. If the Impact continues to ally clever work on the counter with resolute work at the back, then Marco Schällibaum's side will continue to churn out results no matter the venue

 

Next on the docket: The in-form Impact will host Canadian rivals Toronto FC at Olympic Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

MLS 195 43 MLS Power Rankings: Week Two 31630897 Vancouver Whitecaps Vancouver+Whitecaps MLS

Martin Rennie's side continued its unblemished start to the season with a 2-1 victory over Columbus at B.C. Place on Saturday. Stand-in captain Kenny Miller notched the decisive goal shortly before the hour to fire the Whitecaps to a second win in as many matches.

 

Next on the docket: Vancouver will rest up this weekend before traveling to Houston on March 23.

MLS 195 43 MLS Power Rankings: Week Two 31630896 Houston Dynamo Houston+Dynamo MLS

Santos Laguna erased a one-goal deficit from the first leg and ended the Dynamo's CONCACAF Champions League hopes with a 3-0 victory at Estadio Corona on Wednesday night. The defeat will allow Houston to shift its sights back to its primary goal: performing well in MLS.

 

Next on the docket: Houston will not have to worry about Herculez Gómez or Oribe Peralta on the trip to face FC Dallas on Sunday afternoon.

MLS 195 43 MLS Power Rankings: Week Two 31630899 Sporting KC Sporting+KC MLS

Toronto FC did what Philadelphia could not do on opening weekend: it punished Sporting for a poor start. Former Cardiff City striker Robert Earnshaw struck twice in the early stages to send Sporting to an unexpected 2-1 defeat at the Rogers Centre on Saturday afternoon. The setback underscored the Eastern Conference favorites' rather lackluster start to the season.

 

Next on the docket: Sporting will hope to come out flying when it hosts Chicago on Saturday afternoon.

MLS 195 43 MLS Power Rankings: Week Two 31630903 San Jose Earthquakes San+Jose+Earthquakes MLS

Chris Wondolowski took advantage of Roy Miller's perplexing interpretation of encroachment rules to cap yet another Earthquakes late show on Sunday night. San Jose will hope the 2-1 victory over New York provides a platform for continued success despite the absence of several key regulars.

 

Next on the docket: Frank Yallop's tattered squad heads to Crew Stadium to face Columbus on Saturday night.

MLS 195 43 MLS Power Rankings: Week Two 31630904 Real Salt Lake Real+Salt+Lake MLS

RSL will likely take heart from its first two matches. Three points from two road matches represents a pretty decent return, particularly with one of those games taking place at the house of horrors better known as R.F.K. Stadium. This experienced group will hope to take advantage of a pair of home dates over the next three weeks to consolidate its promising start to the season.

 

Next on the docket: RSL renews Rocky Mountain hostilities with downtrodden Colorado on Saturday night.

MLS 195 43 MLS Power Rankings: Week Two 31630906 Seattle Sounders Seattle+Sounders+ MLS

A spirited second-half fightback carried Seattle through to the semifinals of the CONCACAF Champions League on Tuesday night. This sort of result – a 3-1 home victory over 10-man Tigres – could inspire Seattle to greater heights over the next few weeks. Obafemi Martins' arrival wouldn't hurt the cause, either.

 

Next on the docket: Seattle will turn its focus back to domestic matters when Cascadia rivals Portland visit CenturyLink Field on Saturday night.

MLS 195 43 MLS Power Rankings: Week Two 31630902 DC United DC+United MLS

United continued its hex over Real Salt Lake with a 1-0 victory at RFK Stadium on Saturday night. The result ensured D.C. grabbed a split of its two matches without the suspended Dwayne De Rosario. His looming return adds a bit more inventiveness in the final third for a group that lacks a bit of punch without him.

 

Next on the docket: De Rosario will hope to make his season debut at New York on Saturday afternoon.

MLS 195 43 MLS Power Rankings: Week Two 31630905 New England Revolution New+England+Revolution MLS

The extra week of preparation yielded significant results for the Revolution in Chicago. Jerry Bengtson headed home Kelyn Rowe's deft clip over the top in the second half to hand Jay Heaps' side all three points at Toyota Park. If Bengtson keeps scoring and Juan Toja supplies a necessary dose of ingenuity, then the Revs could continue to surprise.

 

Next on the docket: The road show continues with a trip to Philadelphia on Saturday afternoon.
