Galaxy Emerges from Battle at the Bottom
L.A. Soccer News, June 18th, 2007 4:30PM

MOST COMMENTED

It was crazy weekend in MLS, too: great games, dramatic finishes, and tons of goals, many of which were very, very high quality. Perhaps the biggest battle of them all came from league's bottom two teams who were both desperately in need of a win.

In the end, the Los Angeles Galaxy was able to maintain its lead over Real Salt Lake to record its second win of a beleaguered start to the 2007 season. Significantly, L.A. got goals from strikers not named Landon Donovan, as Nate Jaqua finally recorded his first of the season, as did Edson Buddle, who scored courtesy of an assist from fellow new signing Abel Xavier. In the end, though, it was veteran Cobi Jones who notched the game-winner with 25 minutes to go. RSL is still the only team left in MLS without a win.

The Galaxy players will be the first to note that the 3-2 win was far from pretty, but at least they've made a positive start to what is no doubt the toughest month of their season in the absence of Donovan and the yet-to-arrive David Beckham. "Tonight, it showed that we wanted to win this match," coach Frank Yallop told L.A. Soccer News. "Yes, we made mistakes. Yes, we could have done better in certain situations. It is a turning point for us. We can now build on this." Added goalkeeper Joe Cannon: "We'll take three points over how it looks."
