LA Galaxy 1 New York Bulls 1

A goal each for Thierry Henry and Landon Donovan at the Home Depot Centre sees these two big hitters settle for a draw. Both goals came in the first half, Henry scoring only a little after three minutes had elapsed. Donovan replied on 40 minutes after a corner from Beckham who adds to his assists yet again. Before the half time whistle went, Donovan squandered an exceptional chance after taking the ball past the keeper after a far-sighted Beckham pass found him in no-mans land. Donovan's final shot was too weak and a Bulls defender was able to slide in and hack the ball off the line in the nick of time.
The second half bought plenty of chances, Donovan Ricketts had to stay strong in the LA goal-mouth to keep the Bulls out and Galaxy peppered the New York goal, but the final result was an honorable draw.
La play again on Wednesday this coming week - the return match against the Union in Philadelphia.
