The Los Angeles Galaxy and FC Dallas ended their respective 2008 campaigns against each other at the Home Depot Center on Sunday afternoon. Even though both teams will be watching the 2008 MLS playoffs on their television sets, the two teams still left everything out on the field, which ended in a 2-2 draw.

The match did feature the league’s top two goal scorers; Landon Donovan of the Galaxy and FC Dallas’ Kenny Cooper. Donovan was one ahead of Cooper in the golden boot race with 19 goals heading into Sunday’s match.

Donovan came out the winner, as he notched up his 20th goal of the season on a penalty kick in the 78th minute.

Referee Tim Weyland awarded the penalty kick and Donovan successfully buried the shot to the far right post.
