Colorado 1 LA Galaxy 3

Having proved that they can live in the MLS without Landon Donovan, LA go on the prove that they don't need Beckham either, although Colorado played the final crucial 15 minutes with only 10 men on the field.
Colorado dominated from the start, but an own-goal saw them fall behind after 25 minutes, and before half-time, Juninho scored from 25 yards to make it 2-0 to the Galaxy at the break, leaving a mountain for The Rapids to climb in the second half.
Colorado pulled one back after 20 minutes of the second half, picking up a rebound from the post and giving them a glimmer of hope at 2-1, hope faded as Folan got a straight red for a bad challenge and just to top things off Chad Barrett scored with 10 minutes to go giving The Galaxy a much-needed victory to keep them at the top of the league.
Colorado are going to feel that they gave this game away, whilst The Galaxy can feel that they had quite a lucky day all in all.
Beckham reportedly suffered back spasms in the week which had not cleared up on Friday when the team were ready to travel.
