I would like to apologize to all the Galaxy fans out there.
Yet again, Los Angeles jumped out to an early lead. The opener was a skillful exchange between Landon Donovan, Robbie Keane and Marcelo Sarvas. That lead was doubled after yet another combination of Donovan and Keane, before winger Hector Jimenez finished off the play.
But the Earthquakes never surrendered. They kept the pressure up and got a goal back. Yet, despite numerous Galaxy chances, Los Angeles was unable to put the game out of reach.
Stoppage time came and the score was still 2-1. That is until Shea Salinas pounced on a loose ball in the box to level things up. The sold out Stanford Stadium went berserk as it looked like the quakes would leave with a point.
But there was more to come.
Just a minute later, the Quakes pressed again. The ball was lofted invitingly toward the far post where Alan Gordon nodded home for the game winner.
The incredible buildup and subsequent finish to a wonderful California Clasico makes this the No. 1 moment of the MLS season so far.
