SAN JOSE, Calif. — Manny Lagos scored two goals against his former team as the San Jose Earthquakes beat the Tampa Bay 2-1 Saturday, extending the Mutiny's losing streak to four matches.

Lagos scored on a header in the 92nd minute off a pass from Landon Donovan after referees added two minutes of stoppage time. Lagos' goal spoiled the debut of Tampa Bay coach Perry Van Der Beck.

Van Der Beck and Jim McGeough replaced Alfonso Mondelo, who resigned as head coach on July 5 and led the Mutiny as co-coaches in a 3-2 loss to Chicago on July 7. Van Der Beck was named the head coach on Friday.

The Mutiny (3-14-1) have lost seven straight road games and 10 of 11 matches overall.

The Earthquakes (9-3-5), coming off a 3-1 loss to Colorado which snapped a club-record 12-match unbeaten streak, had a 23-16 advantage in shots and earned their third win over Tampa Bay in 13 matches.

Lagos opened the scoring in the 3rd minute, accepting a pass from Dwayne DeRosario, beat defenders Josh Keller and Steve Trittschuh, and tucked the ball into the left corner past Tampa Bay goalkeeper Adin Brown.

The Mutiny's Mamadou Diallo tied the match 1-1 with a penalty shot in the 71st minute.

Brown, part of a five-player trade with Colorado for Carlos Valderrama on June 28, kept Tampa Bay in contention with several spectacular saves before Diallo was taken down in the box by Jimmy Conrad.

Diallo easily beat goalie Jon Conway on the penalty kick.

WIZARDS 3, BURN 2: At Kansas City, Mo., Onandi Lowe scored on a header with a minute left, completing Kansas City's late rally from a two-goal deficit.

Lowe, who also had an assist, recorded his second game-winning goal of the season off Peter Vermes' corner kick.

Oscar Pareja scored in the 21st minute, and Ariel Graziani added a breakaway goal in the 52nd minute for Dallas (6-7-4).

Roy Lassiter scored twice in two minutes for the Wizards (8-9-1).

UNITED 3, REVOLUTION 1: At Foxboro, Mass., Santino Quaranta scored two goals to lead D.C. United past New England.

The 16-year-old Quaranta scored United's first goal in the fifth minute and scored again in stoppage time. Jamie Moreno also scored for United (6-10-1).

William Sunsing scored in the 87th minute for New England (4-9-4).

FIRE 1, RAPIDS 0: At Chicago, Hristo Stoitchkov scored in extra time as Chicago extended its winning streak to four matches with a victory over Colorado.

Colorado (4-9-5) had its two-match winning streak snapped.

GALAXY 3, FUSION 0: At Pasadena, Calif., Luis Hernandez had a goal and an assist and Kevin Hartman made five saves as Los Angeles beat Miami and maintained a share of first place in the Western Division.

Greg Vanney added a goal on a penalty kick, and Adam Frye scored in the 85th minute for the Galaxy (9-5-5).

Miami (11-3-3) lost its second consecutive game following a 12-game unbeaten streak.
