[CONCACAF CHAMPIONS LEAGUE] Two-time defending champion Monterrey punished the LA Galaxy with a pair of lightning bolts late in the game to rally for a 2-1 win that puts it on course to return to the final. Few could deny that the results of Tuesday and Wednesday point to a Monterrey-Santos repeat in the final in a crushing blow for MLS hopes.

The league had cleared the deck for the Galaxy and Seattle Sounders to have this weekend off in anticipation of next week's second legs, but both teams will head to Mexico with deficits to make up.

In the case of the Galaxy and its fans -- the game drew a CCL-high of 21,745 at the Home Depot Center -- that deficit is all the more painful because it didn't need to be.

A.J. DeLaGarza put the Galaxy in the first half, and the MLS club continued to control the tempo into the second half. But Juninho went off injured and Landon Donovan had a subdued game after coming on for Jose Villarreal.

Humberto Suazo scored the equalizer in the 82nd minute when he sneaked past Leonardo to put away a rebound of rebound of Aldo de Nigris' shot. And as stoppage time began, de Nigris caught Omar Gonzalez napping and beat Galaxy goalkeeper Carlo Cudicini for the winning goal.

    Total choke in last 10 mins after controlling game by Galaxy. Great subs and attack mode even while being down by Monterey.
