Galaxy 5, Chivas 2

A Hatrick for Donovan after been booked early on for knocking the ball past the keeper with his hand, and a brace for Alan Gordon in the first SuperClasico of the season. The game was all level at 2-2 up to the last 15 minutes, but the substitution of Gordon for Buddle late in the second half paid of very quickly. Chivas goals ranged from the sublime to the ridiculous with a sublime first goal from Sacha Kljestan. Their second said more about the Galaxy defense as a comedy of errors finished when the ball dropped at the feet of Ante Razov with the defense all at sea, he just blasted straight through them with the goalkeeper floundering.

Beckham can't really count his contribution in terms of goals or even direct assists in this match, but his performance as captain was sound nonetheless, and his involvement certainly contributed to a couple of the goals. He came close with a trademark free kick from distance, but just managed to put it over the bar.
