MLS Game Summary - New England at Los Angeles|
(Saturday, March 27, 2010)
From The Sports Network
Final Score: Los Angeles 1, New England 0
Carson, CA (Sports Network) - The Los Angeles Galaxy topped the New England
Revolution 1-0 as the two Major League Soccer sides opened their respective
seasons at The Home Depot Center on Saturday night.
Edson Buddle scored the game's lone goal just six minutes in when Landon
Donovan's free kick from the left sideline found him unmarked in the Revs'
Buddle responded by snapping a header past New England goalkeeper Preston
Burpo for the 1-0 advantage.
New England, which was playing without a full compliment of players because of
injury, specifically midfielder Shalrie Joseph, generated very little on the
offensive end throughout the game.
The Galaxy will aim to build on the workman-like effort vs. Chivas USA on
Thursday, while New England will hope to rebound at D.C. United on Saturday in
its next MLS fixture.
