Picault converted from the spot in the 76th minute, after New England’s Antonio Delamea was called for a hand ball in the area, to give Philadelphia (9-11-3) a 3-2 lead.

Elliott, a 22-year-old defender who came in with one career goal, opened the scoring in the 14th minute. He made it 2-0from point-blank range in the 24th.

New England’s Andrew Farrell first-timed a left-footer in the opening seconds of the second half to make it 2-1, and Wilfried Zahibo’s header tied it a 2 in the 64th.

New England (7-8-8) is winless in its last six games.

WHITECAPS 2, TIMBERS 1

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Kei Kamara and Cristian Techera each scored for Vancouver, snapping a 15-match unbeaten streak for Portland.

The Timbers (10-3-8) had not dropped a league match since losing 3-2 at Orlando City on April 8. The 15-match streak was the longest in MLS this season and equaled a franchise record for Portland.

Diego Valeri scored on a second-half penalty kick for the Timbers, who lost at home for the first time this season.

Kamara gave the Whitecaps (9-9-6) the early lead with a header off a free kick in the 14th minute.

In the 43rd minute, Techera scored from close range in his 100th MLS appearance to put the Whitecaps up 2-0.

Valeri got another chance in the 71st minute, this time scoring on a penalty kick against Stefan Marinovic for his ninth goal of the season. His free kick in the 89th minute was slapped away by Marinovic.

RAPIDS 2, EARTHQUAKES 1

COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (AP) — Nana Boateng scored his first MLS goal in the 93rd minute lift Colorado past 10-man San Jose.

Boateng took Edgar Castillo’s short pass and found some room in the penalty area before cutting back a shot that skipped though two defenders and outside the reach of the goalkeeper.

Shea Salinas was sent off in the 88th minute for throwing a reactive elbow that hit Dillon Serna in the face. Serna was given a yellow card for the instigating foul against Salinas.

Tommy Smith opened the scoring for Colorado (6-12-5) in the 24th minute. Magnus Eriksson converted a penalty for San Jose (3-13-7) in the 58th minute.

RED BULLS 1, FIRE 0

BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. (AP) — Bradley Wright-Phillips scored and Luis Robles had his eighth shutout of the season in New York’s victory over Chicago.

Wright-Phillips opened the scoring in the 55th minute. Daniel Royer stole a pass from Chicago’s Dax McCarty at the top corner of the area and tapped it to Wright-Phillips for the finish with the outside of his right foot. He has 15 goals this season.
