POSTGAME NOTES & QUOTES
  • With the draw, the Galaxy are now 3-3-1 on the season for 10 points. They are now alone in seventh place in the Western Conference.
  • The Galaxy are now unbeaten in their last three MLS games, going 2-0-1 for seven of their 10 points on the season.
  • Galaxy head coach Bruce Arena made one change to the team that beat Colorado 2-1 at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park last weekend. Bill Gaudette got the start in goal in place of Josh Saunders, who missed the game to attend to personal matters.

LA GALAXY HEAD COACH BRUCE ARENA

On Landon Donovan not taking the PK:

“I don’t know the detailed discussion Robbie (Keane) and Landon (Donovan) had. Robbie wanted to take the kick and Landon said ‘fine’. Now I’ll be honest with you, if any team has the choice between Robbie Keane and Landon Donovan or (David) Beckham taking penalty kicks, you’re real happy. The easiest thing to do in the aftermath is be critical and say ‘missed a kick.’ There aren’t any better players in the world to take penalties than Robbie Keane and Landon Donovan. We missed it tonight.”

LA GALAXY MIDFIELDER LANDON DONOVAN

On his missed opportunities:

“The first one got a way from me a little bit. I was a little bit in between steps but I should have done better. The second one I just kind of reacted and (Chris) Seitz made a good save. It was sort of one of those nights that we need one of those to fall our way if we were going to win this game but still a great effort to get something out of it.”

SEEKING BETTER RESULT

The Galaxy were able to salvage a 1-1 draw against FC Dallas after Pat Noonan buried a stoppage-time equalizer. Brek Shea had put the visitors up in the 61st minute when he converted a penalty kick but Noonan’s goal helped cap off a somewhat desperate final half hour.

“We’re happy we came away with a point but we’re not satisfied with the result,” Galaxy goalkeeper Bill Gaudette said.
