Galaxy and Dynamo capture division titles

[MLS RESERVE LEAGUE] Major League Soccer was off this past week, but players were still in action in the Reserve League, where the Los Angeles Galaxy and Houston Dynamo clinched divisional titles.

The Galaxy win its first-ever Reserve League division title with a 6-0 win over the Vancouver Whitecaps, pulling away with five second-half goals on Friday.

Jack McBean led the Galaxy with two goals, while Pat Noonan and Rafael Garcia each had a goal and an assist.

Cam Weaver scored both goals for the Houston Dynamo as it captured the Central/Mountain division championship with a 2-1 win over the Chicago Fire on Saturday morning.

Weaver completed a five-goal haul for the week after recording a hat trick on Wednesday at Real Salt Lake. He led the Dynamo reserves with 11 goals in nine games.

It is Houston’s second MLS Reserve League division title. The Dynamo captured the division crown in 2008.
