Colorado Rapids 1 Galaxy 2

It was a road win the Galaxy deserved, dominating Colorado and taking a 2-0 lead only for a non existent PK call (c’mon MLS refs you have to actually see contact, especially in the box, not just assume it occurs if an attacker goes down) to jeopardize the win late on. Fortunately, justice was done as Omar Cummings produced a simply dreadful attempted coversion and a grateful Josh Saunders had the relatively simply matter of scooping up the ball, extinguishing the danger and sealing the win.

Chivas USA 0 Union 1

Chivas USA, meanwhile, are still figuring out how to turn superiority into three points despite largely outplaying their young opponents and dominating possession (66 percent compared to 34 percent).

Staff Writer Phil Collin has the game story.

    Dominating? I dunno. Better, tho. I’ll take it.
