[CONCACAF CHAMPIONS LEAGUE] There was no miracle in Bayamon. The Los Angeles Galaxy, crushed, 4-1, in the first leg at home, won, 2-1, in the second leg of its preliminary-round series against the Puerto Islanders, last in their D-2 Pro League conference, but was eliminated, 5-3, on aggregate.

A first-half penalty by Englishman David Foley put the Islanders ahead.

Los Angeles equalized on an own goal by Marco Velez five minutes later -- its only goal at the Home Depot Center was also an own goal -- and goalie Bill Gaudette held off the MLS leaders until Sean Franklin's goal with seven minutes left in regulation gave them the consolation win.

The Islanders qualified for the group stage of the Concacaf Champions League for the third straight time.

They reached the semifinals in 2009 but went winless in the group stage last fall after beating Toronto FC in the preliminary round.

    Not only was the play of L.A. abysmal.They are not an attractive team to watch.Also the linesmen(man) continued to make bad calls! LA deserved to lose.
