Believe it or not, the Los Angeles Galaxy still isn't out of contention for the MLS Cup Playoffs despite losing 2-1 to the Chicago Fire this weekend. How's that? Because Real Salt Lake and the Colorado Rapids, which are both vying for the same fourth-place spot, managed to lose over the weekend, too. The Fire took the lead in this one just 39 seconds into the game, after Chris Rolfe tapped in a nice centering pass from Justin Mapp, in what was the ninth-fastest goal in MLS history. After that, the Galaxy was able to compose itself and create some decent scoring chances, but Matt Pickens produced save after save until a lovely solo run down the middle from Landon Donovan in the 78th minute. Donovan used a defender as a screen to hit a solid left-footed drive past the helpless Pickens, who didn't move. However, Donovan's equalizer would last only six minutes, after Andy Herron was taken down in the corner of the penalty area. Herron then converted the resulting penalty. L.A. is still six points out of fourth place, with just three games of the regular season to go, but now it absolutely has to win its next three games to stand any chance of advancing to the playoffs.
