[CONCACAF CHAMPIONS LEAGUE] The Los Angeles Galaxy's 2-0 win over Alajuelense of Costa Rica assured MLS of having teams atop the standings in all four groups. After Day 2 of the regional competition, MLS clubs are 8-1-1 -- and the lone defeat came Thursday when Toronto FC fell to fellow MLS club FC Dallas, 1-0.

The Galaxy won its second 2-0 game at home when it put away Alajuelense thanks to goals by Omar Gonzalez and Chad Barrett.

David Beckham
fed Gonzalez with a corner kick on the first goal, and on the second goal the Englishman threaded the needle to spring Sean Franklin breaking in from the right wing. Franklin's centering pass found Barrett for an easy goal.

The game ended on a down note for the Galaxy, though. Brazilian Juninho was sent off for an errant -- and needless -- elbow in the 88th minute and will miss the next game: a trip to Mexican club Morelia on Sept. 13.
