LA Galaxy 2 Real Salt Lake 2

In a game that generated the same score as the meeting of these two teams in May this year, LA were missing the combined power of Beckham and Donovan once again. The Galaxy stretch their streak of games without a win to eleven, and Bruce Arena is still looking for his first win since taking over as manager.
Salt Lake took the game to Galaxy and had much of the play in the opening minutes, they had the ball in the net early on and Salt Lake's Espindola damaged his back whilst celebrating only to find that the goal had been disallowed for offside...
Galaxy took advantage of the injury and Bryan Jordan ran on to a Buddle shot to score his first ever MLS goal. More pressure followed from Salt lake and they managed to level the game at 1-1 in the 20th minute. The scores remained level at the break, but only 7 minutes into the second half, Salt Lake took the lead.
This seemed to wake up the Galaxy who seem set to accept draws instead of wins and they battled to draw level with a Buddle tap-in on 70 minutes. After that both teams disappointingly seemed to settle for the draw, and hardly another attack was seen as they played out the game to it's inevitable conclusion. I can't think that a team captained by Beckham would lay down quite as easily.
