Beckham hits net; D.C. keeper goes beserk [VIDEO]
by Mike Woitalla, August 31st, 2009 7AM



[MLS NAMES & NUMBERS] Only of one the weekend's seven games had more than one goal. Included in five 1-0 decisions were the New York Red Bulls' second straight win since their coaching change, David Beckham's first goal of the season, and D.C. United keeper's assault of a teammate.

DAVID BECKHAM. The Englishman, who had previously scored five goals in 35 MLS games, hit the gamewinner for the Los Angeles Galaxy in its 1-0 win over Chivas USA with a 18-yard shot in front of 27,000 fans.

3. The New England Revolution won its third straight with a 2-1 win over San Jose thanks to goals by Steve Ralston and Wells Thompson.

DANE RICHARDS. On a run with the ball that started in his own half, the Jamaican scored the gamewinner for the New York Red Bulls in a 1-0 victory over defending champ Columbus in a rematch of MLS Cup 08. The win was New York's fourth of the season and second straight since Richie Williams replaced Juan Carlos Osorio at the Red Bulls' helm. VIDEO

32,679. Another huge crowd showed up in Seattle, but the Sounders and Toronto FC shot blanks for a 0-0 tie. Seattle's Freddie Ljungberg got his fifth yellow card of the season and will be suspended from its next game, vs. D.C. United on Sept. 12.

JULIEN BAUDET. The Frenchman, in his second appearance for Colorado, scored his first MLS goal, the decider in a 1-0 home win over Houston.

424. The Kansas City Wizards, after a 1-0 loss to Real Salt Lake, haven't scored in 424 minute. RSL held the lead created by Brazilian Pablo Campos in the 18th minute despite losing Ned Grabavoy to a red card in the 42nd minute.

JOSH WICKS. The D.C. United goalkeeper went whacko and had to be restrained by teammates when he went after teammate Marc Burch as Chicago futilely went for a late equalizer in D.C. United's 1-0 win. It was United's first league win since July 18 and first road win since April.
