San Jose Earthquakes 0 LA Galaxy 3

Fantastic result for the Galaxy as their season really starts to take off. Beckham had a reasonably quiet game although having an early chance to score, sent the ball high over the bar.

Donovan and Ruiz missed this match due to international commitments and Gordon is suspended. The burden of responsibility fell to Buddle and he did not disappoint with his second hat-trick of the season.

Buddle opened the scoring on 6 minutes when Beckham casually lobbed the ball into the box for Tudela to nod down to Buddle’s feet. Buddle struck the ball sweetly on the volley to sneak it in the left-hand corner from the edge of the box.

It was nearly a hour later when Buddle got his second via a diving header in the 63rd minute. Five minutes later saw Randolph crossing from the left and Buddles header found the net once more for the hat-trick.

In the last five, Buddle missed a chance to score a fourth when Beckham put him behind the defence with only the keeper to beat.

The Galaxy are fast becoming a force to be reckoned with in the West…
