Donovan hat-trick clinches Superclassico

Posted on 28 April 2008 by ASN Staff

A hat-trick by Landon Donovan and brace by Alan Gordon added up to five goals and victory for the L.A. Galaxy in the first Superclasico of 2008. Through five games, Donovan now has a staggering tally of eight goals. “I think Landon is in great shape,” said head coach Ruud Gullit.

The game was closer than the score might indicate, however, as Ante Razov scored a 62nd minute equalizer for Chivas USA and the two sides were level at 2-2 through the 75th minute of play. Gordon struck a minute later and that opened the floodgates.
