[DESERT DIAMOND CUP] Fielding a team that included a pair of rookies, Tommy Meyer and Bryan Gaul, in central defense, the Los Angeles Galaxy beat the New England 4-2 in a shootout to win the Desert Diamond Cup after the final ended in a 0-0 tie. Backup keeper Brian Perk saved two shots in the shootout. Real Salt Lake edged the New York Red Bulls, 1-0, for third place. The final day of the tournament drew a crowd of 10,172 Saturday night.

Only two starters from the 2011 MLS Cup final -- Todd Dunivant and Juninho -- started for the Galaxy, which faces Toronto FC in Wednesday's Concacaf Champions League quarterfinals. The Revs, who had won their first three games in Tucson, started what will be close to their starting lineup in 2012.
