LA 1 Rapids 3

Colorado Rapids came back from an early (9 mins) goal from Edson Buddle at the Home Depot Centre. Birchall laid it on for Buddle who took his time, and got a lucky deflection that looped the ball right over the keepers head.
Colorado got a lucky break of their own as Franklin's clearance from a corner hit Buddle and flew into his own net. After that, more pressing from Colorado saw them take the lead on the half hour mark, taking a 2-1 lead into the second half.
The Galaxy failed to pull back the lead and on the hour mark, Colorado made it 3-1. Galaxy had a late effort disallowed for offside, but the game had already given them the slip.
Beckham played the full ninety, earlier in the week he had said that he was happy with his progress since the injury - one goal and an assist already in the bag and still not up to full fitness levels...
