Chivas USA 2 Galaxy 2
An entertaining if error-ridden game with all four goals coming from unmitigated howlers has ended all square.
Alan Gordon missed a trio of chances for the Galaxy after coming on a as a second half sub that could have made the difference, but Chivas USA had their own burden to bear with striker Justin Braun seemingly intent on giving away virtually every ball he touched.
Highlight of the second half was Paulo Nagamura’s stabbing turn and shot that required an agile (as always) Donovan Ricketts to turn the ball spectacularly around the post with a superb diving save.
Next: the Galaxy host Chivas USA at 4:30 p.m. Sunday at Home Depot Center.

Let’s see: 4 goals, 4 examples of crap defending. LA-CHV looking like CYO game. Beckham’s head might explode. 2-2.
