Time-wasting drills are employed and the game seems to be over. It will be interesting to see how the Galaxy react to this as they are now 3-8-5 and losing steam. I’ll give you some tidbits once the press conference is over. Good stuff – see y’all later.
4 minutes of injury time announced
89′ Trusty Carlos Mendes is taking Clint Mathis out – so he can receive treatment on an unknown knock. Magee on for Altidore a minute later.
88′ WHAT THE FUCK! A huge drive from Mathis is saved wonderfully by Cannon only to trickle out for Angel to follow up. Angel – at NO angle – gets a shot on net and Cannon tries to parry it away but instead he hits it off his own body and into the net. Angel is credited for the goal and Bulls are now up 5-4!
Any comments people? David Beckham just got credited for his third assist of the game on Buddle’s gametying goal.
86′ – An Angel freekick sails just wide. Just letting people know that he’s still here.
84′ – John Wolyniec on for Dave VDBergh. Arena has opted for scrappiness to get this win does. And Wolyniec is the definition of that.
82′ – Tom Arnold is here! GOAL!!!!!!!!!!! Edson Buddle gets his revenge after a corner from David Beckham is put on frame. The first shot hit the cross bar though and bounced back to Buddle, who tucked it away. Happened too fast for Waterreus to even react. All tied up at 4. Geez. (Remember the Superliga LAG 6-5 win over Dallas? Could we be in for a crazy last 5 minutes?)
80 minutes and counting for Mr. Beckham
78′ – Another restart for Beckham and LA as Dane Richards fouls Martino 25 yards out.
76′ – The first sub Gavin Glinton is subbed off in favor of Edson Buddle – a little bit of a desire for revenge, Edson?
74′ – Yellow card for Vide as it sets up Beckham for a restart 25 yards out……queue the flashes. BLOCKED!!!!!!!!!! AGAIN!
73′ – A David Beckham cross finds a Pavon foot but sails too high – but too close for comfort for Waterreus.
72′ – GOAL!!!!!!!!! The REd Bulls are still celebrating when Kevin Stott allows the Galaxy to restart the game. Landon Donovan gets the ball 20 yards and speeds by Jeff Parke, then slots it home cooly to pull the Galaxy back within one. RBNY 4, LAG 3.
71′ – GOAL!!!!!!!!!!! Jozy Altidore has just sealed the deal for Man of the Match. The 17 year old recieved the ball at the corner of the penalty box and threw a couple stepovers, dancing around the LA defense. Wow. RBNY 4, LAG 2
