L A Galaxy 3 Columbus Crew 3

Galaxy have been flying high with four wins out of five, Columbus Crew have not been doing so well, ending a win-less streak on their last outing.
Both teams came out fighting in the sweltering heat, Galaxy taking the early advantage on 4mins when the keeper fumbled a Beckham cross and Donovan put it away. The Galaxy had a host of chances to increase their lead in the first half and looked to be in control, despite not increasing their lead.
Buddle then scored the best goal of the match early in the second half when he skipped past defenders and curled the ball around the keeper from close range. For me, Buddle is increasingly looking like a top quality player with the ability both to take defenders on and to finish effectively. In the 67th minute, Columbus managed to pounce on a ball bouncing off the back of a Galaxy defender in the area, this was the start of the comeback. Just four minutes later their second came from a penalty when Klein was adjudged to have fouled Rogers. Ten minutes on and Galaxy were given a penalty when Beckham was bought down (after more fine work from Buddle), Donovan squeezed the penalty past the keeper and The Galaxy were ahead, but only for a few minutes when another penalty-area scramble led to the second equaliser for Columbus. Beckham squandered another shot in the closing stages and overall The Galaxy will feel that they gave points away today.

this is a constant problem for the galaxy. They have great offense but are poor on defense. They game away 2 points.

Its stunning how much Buddle has developed lately, im very surprised with him.
