[CONCACAF CHAMPIONS LEAGUE: Week 2]The LA Galaxy opened up play  in the 2013-14 edition of the Concacaf Champions League with a 2-0 win over Cartagines of Costa Rica thanks to a pair of second-half goals from Robbie Keane set up by Landon Donovan. The Houston Dynamo got a late scare but held on for a 0-0 tie at DIRECTV W Connection of Trinidad & Tobago.

Donovan didn't start at the StubHub Center but four minutes after he came on he threaded a ball through four Cartagines defenders that Keane slotted past keeper Wardy Alfaro. Three minutes into stoppage time, Donovan fed Keane for a second goal.

W Connection midfielder Neil Benjamin had the game's best chances, missing withTally Hall beaten on a breakaway in the 73rd minute and hitting the crossbar in the 85th minute.

In the third CCL game of the night, U.S. U-18 star Paul Arriola scored his second goal in five days to open the scoring for Tijuana in its 3-2 win at Victoria of Honduras in a match delayed because lightning knocked the power at the Estadio Ceibano in La Ceiba.

Four other American-born players also played -- starters Greg Garza and Bruno Piceno and subs Joe Corona and Edgar Castillo.
