Seattle Sounders 0 Galaxy 1
Sure shot: A mature, perfectly struck shot by Juninho provided the goal that gave the Galaxy a fifth successive win Tuesday over Seattle. This attempt came later in the half (AP Photos).
The Galaxy have Seattle’s number.
*Seattle never seriously challenged the make-shift central defensive duo of Leonardo and A.J. DeLaGarza.
*David Beckham had a largely terrible game including hoofing a shot amateurishly over the bar, straining to make any significant impact beyond unimaginative passes and generally spending the game whining on the wing.
*Reserve goalkeeper Josh Saunders kept the Sounders at bay filling in admirably and competently for the injured Donovan Ricketts.
Tweeted the missing Omar Gonzalez:
Doing everything I can o get back as soon as possible… Wish I could of been out there battling with my teammates! Job well done Galaxy!!
Here’s the Seattle perspective on the game and their “boogey-team.”
Japan tribute: Sounders fans remembered the earthquake and tsunami victims in Japan.
