Curtain Draws to a Close for the Galaxy

The reign of the Los Angeles Galaxy as Major League Soccer champ is just about over, writes Grahame L. Jones of the Los Angeles Times. Now, all that remains is the confirmation. LA failed to beat the Colorado Rapids at home on Saturday night in a match it knew it had to win. As referee Brian Hall blew final whistle, ending the match 0-0, a chorus of loud boos reverberated around the Home Depot Center. The result leaves the Galaxy in last place in the Western Conference with only four regular-season games remaining. It has 33 points, 13 points behind conference leader FC Dallas, and six points behind Colorado, which holds the last playoff spot. This was the fourth failed attempt by last year's MLS champions to beat the Rapids this season; the other three each ended in 1-0 losses. Jones says the Galaxy ran its socks off, but had little to show for it. The best chance of the game came when LA defender Ante Jazic fired a shot that screamed just wide of the left post after a poor clearance from a corner kick. Rapids keeper Joe Cannon also made one difficult save when he punched the ball away just before Galaxy midfielder Paulo Nagamura got to it. The loss was made worse by the three points earned by Real Salt Lake, which came from behind twice to beat first-place FC Dallas 3-2. RSL is the team just ahead of the Galaxy in the Western Conference. Read the original story...
