LA Galaxy 1-3 Real Salt Lake
David Beckham's dazzling pass set up Edson Buddle's headed goal to give Galaxy the lead in the 71st minute, but an own goal by Sean Franklin moments later leveled it for Salt Lake.

Javier Morales and Fabian Espindola scored to give Real Salt Lake a 3-1 win over the defending Major League Soccer champions.

Coach Bruce Arena blamed himself for fielding a lineup of tired players after Los Angeles' difficult CONCACAF Champions League match in Toronto on Wednesday.

"I think we all felt good going into the game, but the fatigue of playing a hard game on turf and then traveling back took its toll," Beckham said. "I thought we had quite a few chances to win it, but there were a few mistakes. We'll be OK."

David Beckham was not amused after a Toronto FC fan hurled a beer can at him last night.
The LA Galaxy star, who was in Canada for the soccer match, held the missile up to show the crowd and shook it, clearly unhappy about the incident.
'Tonight was a great atmosphere,' said David, 36.
'The majority were here to enjoy the spectacle.
'It's a shame some people spoiled it. It's disappointing kids see it...but it was a great atmosphere.'
David had earlier been covered in streamers as he took a corner kick in an attempt to distract him from play.
Despite this, LA Galaxy drew 2-2 with Toronto FC, with Becks setting up the 89th-minute equaliser.
David signed a new 2-year contract with his team in January.
'I had many offers from clubs around the world,' said David, 'but my family and I are incredibly happy and settled in America.'
A David Beckham no le pareció muy divertido cuando un fanático de Toronto FC le arrojó una cerveza en el partido del sabado.
'La mayoría de la gente estaba ahí para disfrutar del espectáculo. Había un ambiente excelente. Lastima que alguien tuvo que arruinarlo. Es decepcionante que los niños vean este tipo de actitudes... pero había muy buena atmósfera'.
Recuerden que David renovó contacto con LA Galaxy por dos años más.
