Beckham tees up Galaxy winner

BY foxsports • May 28, 2011

Miguel Lopez head in a David Beckham pass to give the Major League Soccer-leading Los Angeles Galaxy a 1-0 win at the New England Revolution on Saturday.

Beckham's 69th minute pass from 40 yards out on the right flank set up Lopez for his first goal of the season. Lopez flicked a header from just inside the penalty box to the far left corner, past goalkeeper Matt Reis.

Los Angeles, which didn't allow a single New England shot on goal, extended its winning streak to four games and has not conceded a goal in 321 minutes of play.

New England has failed to score in five of their 12 games this season, disappointing a season-best crowd.

In Houston, Colin Clark scored in the 87th minute to salvage a point for hosts Houston against Dallas.

Afforded space in the Dallas box, Clark met a through ball by midfielder Brad Davis and fired from 8 yards past goalkeeper Kevin Hartman for the equalizer.

The Dynamo took a point despite playing the final 18 minutes down a man after defender Kofi Sarkodie was shown his second yellow card.

Dallas, which is unbeaten in eight games, opened the secoring via an Andrew Jacobson goal in the 27th minute but Houston forward Cam Weaver equalized shortly before half time.

The goal ended Salt Lake's shutout streak at 409 minutes.
