MLS Game Summary - Los Angeles at Colorado



(Wednesday, Aug. 20, 2014)

From The Sports Network

Final Score: Los Angeles 4, Colorado 3

Commerce City, CO (SportsNetwork.com) - The Los Angeles Galaxy managed to collect three points at Dick's Sporting Goods Park on Wednesday, coming from behind to get a 4-3 victory over the Colorado Rapids.

The visitors twice found themselves trailing by two goals only to clinch the vital victory with three second-half tallies, which helped L.A. bounce back from a disappointing 4-1 defeat to the Columbus Crew last time out.

The early going belonged to the hosts as Colorado got off the mark in the 14th minute. Deshorn Brown's shot was parried away by Jaime Penedo but only as far as Marlon Hairston, who managed to turn in the rebound from a tough angle.

The Rapids doubled their advantage in the 17th minute with Edson Buddle beating Leonardo to Dillon Powers' corner kick to send a powerful header past Penedo for his 100th career MLS goal.

The Galaxy, though, wasted little time in getting the goal back as Robbie Keane answered within three minutes, bagging his 13th goal of the campaign by nodding Dan Gargan's lofted cross just inside the far post.

But Colorado managed to restore its two-goal lead prior to halftime as Marc Burch sent a stunning free kick off the underside of the crossbar and into the back of the net in the 30th minute.

Los Angeles regrouped at halftime and pulled one back in the 55th minute when Omar Gonzalez was first Landon Donovan's free kick into the box. The United States international beat Clint Irwin to the delivery and sent a glancing header into the unguarded net.

Alan Gordon drew the Galaxy level in 68th minute by taking a header from Gonzalez and tucking home the finish from close range.

The comeback was complete in the 80th minute when Keane slipped a pass into the path of Donovan's darting run, allowing the Galaxy talisman to get around Irwin and seal the win with his sixth league goal of the campaign.

Los Angeles (10-5-7) further solidifies fourth place in the Western Conference as its 37 points brings the club to within two of third-place FC Dallas.

Colorado (8-11-6) has lost its last five league games, conceding 15 goals over that stretch.
