Frank Hejduk scored his first Major League Soccer goal early in the game and assisted on another goal late in the match as Tampa Bay handed the New York-New Jersey MetroStars their fourth consecutive loss, 2-0, Wednesday night in front of 16,102 at East Rutherford, N.J.

The victory, making the Eastern Conference-leading Mutiny 16-12, clinched no worse than a second-place finish. The MetroStars (12-15) are tied for third in the East with New England.

Roy Lassiter, the leading scorer in MLS, also earned his 22nd goal.

New England 2, Dallas 1--Joe-Max Moore fired in the winning penalty kick before 12,933 at Foxboro, Mass. It came in the 78th minute after the Revolution's Geoff Aunger was pulled down from behind on a breakaway. Darren Sawatzky also scored for the Revolution. Ted Eck scored for the Burn.
