The game ends 2-2, an extremely fortunate Galaxy escaping with a point at home after Landon Donovan scored a PK from a non-existent hand ball and then equalized five minutes later from an offside position.
Updated: A vociferous response to my offside claim from readers. The YouTube video a reader sent along is inconclusive; Donovan is in an offside position by the time the ball enters the frame, but we don’t see where he is the moment the ball is kicked. Still, it’s close enough that I’m going to retract my assertion it was clearly offside. Especially since I’m a huge advocate of giving the benefit of the doubt to the forward whenever possible (and believe refs don’t do that enough).
Thanks for all the responses.
