Vancouver Whitecaps 0 LA Galaxy 4

This is the first time that these two teams have met, this being the first season in the MLS for Vancouver. For this game, Beckham is left at home for this game as once again, the accumulation of yellow cards means he misses another league game.
In other team news, Josh Saunders starts once more in goal for the Galaxy standing in for the injured Donovan Ricketts. Angel starts this match with support from Landon Donovan as The Galaxy seek an away win over bottom-of-the-table Vancouver.
The first half was fairly even-handed with neither team establishing a foot-hold in the game despite a flurry of chances for The Galaxy near the end of the half.
It was an hour into the game before the deadlock was broken, a great searching pas from Franklin found Donovan, a defender slipped the the ground leaving Donovan unchallenged shooting across goal with his left foot - a great hit proving to be his 10th goal of the season, this was quickly followed up with a penalty, also scored by Donovan.
Donovan sets Franklin up for LA's third goal, a last-minute effort from Cristman sealed a convincing win, 4-0 to The Galaxy, who are having a great season so far.
