Galaxy avoids upset against Whitecaps

Written by Travis Clark

For 70 minutes, it looked like the Vancouver Whitecaps were about to knock off the defending MLS Cup champs.

An early goal from former Akron Zip Darren Mattocks looked like it just might stand up as the winner, as the LA Galaxy controlled possession but couldn’t put anything away — that is, until Mike Magee’s tying goal on a nice volley from a corner kick.

That cued the floodgates, more or less, for LA, which scored again just a few minutes later from Landon Donovan’s penalty kick to advance in the playoffs and set up a playoff series against San Jose Earthquakes.
