Donovan, Beckham lead Galaxy past Fire, 2-1

David Beckham assisted on Landon Donovan’s goal and then scored

the tiebreaker on a corner kick to help the Los Angeles Galaxy beat

the Chicago Fire 2-1 on Saturday night.

Beckham sent in a cross from the sideline in the 58th minute

that Donovan headed into the net from the back post to make it

1-0.

Cristian Nazarit scored in the 62nd minute for Chicago (2-5-12),

using his head to finish a cross from Patrick Nyarko.

Beckham’s kick from the left corner in the 66th minute that

skipped untouched through a pool of players to help the Galaxy

(10-2-9) extend their league-best unbeaten streak to 6-0-6.

Tempers flared in stoppage time when the Galaxy’s Chris Birchall

made a hard sliding tackle on Nyarko. Players from both sides came

together near the sidelines before order was eventually

restored.
