    In his ten minutes on the field, Villareal has scored half as many goals as Chad Barrett has all season.

    Still, scoring threats are still not the problem for the G’s. It’s that central defense and the slowness of the back line. The Whitecaps speed was impressive and scary throughout the first half. Put a fast team against them, and any Galaxy game will be decided by who gets to five goals first.
