A pedestrian Galaxy performance punctuated by two moments of brilliance — a ninth-minute Bradford Jamieson IV goal, the first in MLS for the 18-year-old, and a 74-minute Jaime Penado save on Bradley Wright-Phillips to preserve the 1-1 draw — nevertheless saw LA take two points off the Eastern Conference leaders, who are unbeaten in a half dozen straight games to open the season. Game story
“I think we controlled the game more today, we did a lot of the things that we wanted to today – put them under pressure, create chances, things like that,” said New York midfielder Sacha Kljestan.”We leave disappointed because we gave up an early goal off of a little small defensive one-on-one mistake, but I think the mentality was good to come back again. We got an ugly goal, we created some good chances and we probably should have scored a few more. So overall, disappointed. The Galaxy tried to kill off the game from the first minute and must’ve wasted 10 minutes of actual playing time so that annoys me.”
The Galaxy are unbeaten in three straight games, but also have failed to win on the road in 10 straight games, going 0-5-5 during that span.

“We did that things you’re supposed to do when you’re playing on the road,” said Galaxy coach Bruce Arena.
Next for the Galaxy: 7:30 p.m. Saturday against the Colorado Rapids at StubHub Center.
Oh, and that goal is worth watching again (and again):
