MLS Game Summary - Los Angeles at Chivas USA



(Sunday, Aug. 12, 2012)

From The Sports Network

Final Score: Los Angeles 4, Chivas USA 0

Carson, CA (Sports Network) - What a difference a week makes for the Los Angeles Galaxy.

Just one week after being trounced, 4-0, by Seattle Sounders FC, the Galaxy responded with an emphatic 4-0 win over Chivas USA on Sunday in the third and final edition of the Super Clasico this season.

Landon Donovan was instrumental in all four Galaxy goals, with Robbie Keane providing the lone tally in the first half while Juninho scored twice and Omar Gonzalez netted his first goal of the campaign after the break in a dominant win for Bruce Arena's side, giving the club five wins from its last seven games.

The two sides split the opening two matches in the L.A. derby this season, but Sunday's game was not much of a contest as the Galaxy controlled play from start to finish.

Chivas goalkeeper Dan Kennedy was busy most of the night, and after making a fine stop on Marcelo Sarvas, he was unable to keep out Keane's opening goal after 27 minutes, which came after a nice pass from Donovan.

Kennedy made a fine reaction stop to deny a header from Donovan before the break, but the Chivas goal came under fire again after halftime.

Sarvas fired a rocket from 25 yards that came back off the post, but Donovan set up Juninho for a well-placed shot that was curled inside the right post shortly after.

That duo hooked up again 10 minutes later to make it 3-0 as Donovan's chipped ball from the left side of the area was finished off with a volley at the back post by Juninho.

And if that wasn't enough, the Galaxy's night was capped off with Gonzalez tallying his first goal since returning from major knee surgery with the defender turning a header past Kennedy from Donovan's corner kick.
