DC United 4 LA Galaxy 1

In a game that The Galaxy needed to win to stamp their authority on the MLS, their frailties were on show as they collapsed in a 4-1 defeat against DC United on a hot Sunday morning.
Despite the heat, the match was played at a great tempo with the score-line flattering the home side even though they certainly looked good going forward. The first goal came by way of a clumsy penalty given away by the Galaxy within the first few minutes. Galaxy replied by getting the ball in the net, only for Donovan to be ruled offside from Beckham's cross bent across the goalmouth. Buddle equalised for the Galaxy after a defensive mix up leaving defenders on the floor and Buddle swiping the ball over the approaching 'keeper. Both teams continued to press and DC came back to edge in front in the first half.
The second half was played at an equally impressive pace, but Galaxy's defence let them down and they ended up conceding two more goals and running out with a big loss.
Beckham played his part helping Galaxy to apply pressure from the long ball game, but at the end of the day, DC were the more convincing side in both attack and defence. Good entertainment, but not much help in the fight to win the league.
