Finally, Becks is giving Galaxy fans something to cheer about

David Beckham finally put his imprint on the SuperClasico rivalry, as his strike from about 25 yards out in the 80th minute was all the Galaxy needed as it outlasted Chivas USA 1-0 at the Home Depot Center on Saturday night.

Aside from winning the Honda Superclasico for the fourth time in the five-year history of the in-stadium rivalry, the win enables the Galaxy to stay in second place in the Western Conference with 38 points, two points behind the Houston Dynamo pending the outcome of the Dynamo’s match with the Colorado Rapids. Chivas USA meanwhile is now tied with Real Salt Lake for fourth in the conference and is also jammed into a three-way tie with the New England Revolution for sixth place in the MLS playoff picture.
