Quakes Maintain 1-0 Lead In Physical, Chippy Game

San Jose has played L.A. very evenly since being gifted an early goal, and the game has been characterized by lots of physical play. Today’s ref has let most of that play go so far, and the result has been a number of minor skirmishes between two groups of players who don’t seem to like each other very much.

The Galaxy had a brief flurry of activity after San Jose’s goal, but since that point possession has been mostly even and good chances have been few and far between for both teams. Mike Magee just missed a goal from a tight angle off of a pass from Donovan in the 27th minute that represented L.A.’s best chance thus far.
