Ten-man Galaxy manage tie with Colorado

Posted on 01 April 2008 by ASN Staff

The Colorado Rapids Reserves battled the Los Angeles Galaxy Reserves to a 1-1 draw today at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park. Bryan Jordan scored for the Galaxy, who started the game with 10 men.

The Rapids Reserves had the first scoring chance in the ninth minute. Cesar Zambrano earned a free kick 20 yards from goal and Herculez Gomez took a shot but it went just over the crossbar.

The Rapids Reserves got on the board first when Herculez struck from distance. The 25-yard bomb was too hard for Josh Wicks to handle as the ball found its way into the net.

Just six minutes after halftime the Galaxy Reserves got their equalizer. Mike Randolph played a cross in from the left and Bryan Jordan headed the ball down and into the goal.

Both teams had chances to take the lead in the 66th minute. Jordan Harvey dove in front of a Galaxy shot to deflect it and Jacob Peterson forced a diving save from Wicks on the other end of the pitch.

Rafael Gomes had the last quality chance to score in the 80th minute. The Brazilian took one touch around his defender and fired a shot but Wicks was in perfect position to corral the shot.
