MLS Game Summary - Philadelphia at Los Angeles|
(Saturday, May 1, 2010)
From The Sports Network
Final Score: Los Angeles 3, Philadelphia 1
Carson, CA (Sports Network) - Edson Buddle added two more goals to his league-
leading total - as well as an assist - as the Los Angeles Galaxy earned a 3-1
win over the expansion Philadelphia Union at The Home Depot Center in Major
league Soccer action on Saturday night.
Buddle has now factored in on all 10 goals the Galaxy (5-0-1) have scored
through six games this season - scoring nine while assisting on the other.
A.J. DeLaGarza was the first Galaxy player not named Buddle to score a goal
this season, just 53 seconds into Saturday's match when he slide into the six-
yard box to knock home a Buddle cross.
Buddle scored a goal of his own about 25 minutes later to give L.A. a 2-0
advantage when he pounced on a rebound and knocked it past goalkeeper Chris
Seitz from close range.
Just before the first-half break Buddle added his second goal of the game when
he took a Landon Donovan pass after the U.S. international star streaked into
the area and played a ball square. Buddle took a touch and fired home to give
his side a comfortable 3-0 advantage.
Things got worse before the break for the Union after Stefani Miglioranzi was
given a red card, forcing his team to play down a man the entire second half.
Jack McInerney was able to pull a goal back for Philadelphia in the 84th
minute, but all that did was break Donovan Ricketts' shutout bid.
The Galaxy jump right back into action with a fixture at Colorado on
Wednesday, while Philadelphia (1-4-0) plays at Real Salt Lake next Saturday in
its next MLS fixture.
