Kansas City Wizards 1 LA Galaxy 1

The Galaxy started well at CommunityAmerica Ballpark and took the game to the Wizards with Beckham playing a vital role feeding the ball to the front men from all over the pitch. Despite Galaxy pressure, it was an error on the half-way line that gifted the ball to the Kansas player Lopez just inside the Wizard's half of the pitch. Lopez spotted Rickets, the Galaxy keeper off his line and lofted the ball over the keeper from a stunning distance on 25 minutes. Rickets slammed into the goalpost in his efforts to reach the ball and damaged his back sufficiently to be substituted. It was 1-0 to the home side, but the Galaxy were back in the game just 8 minutes later when Donovan scored right-footed shooting across the goal into the left-hand corner. Predictably, the deft lay-off to Donovan in mid-field came from Beckham.

In the second half, Kansas came back strong but LA managed to keep them out although the crossbar came to their rescue on one occasion and the ricochet was nearly turned into the net by a Galaxy defender.
Beckham continued to provide quality ball like he had right from the start of the game, and The Galaxy will be disappointed that they have not continued their winning streak in the league, although they remain unbeaten for the fifth league game on the spin. Next up is the friendly against Barcelona on 1st August...
