Galaxy vs. Dallas: Robbie Keane Assists Galaxy To Yet Another Win

The LA Galaxy held on to defeat FC Dallas 1-0 at FC Dallas Stadium Saturday night, without David Beckham and Landon Donovan.

The formula is simple these days, the LA Galaxy get the ball to their DPs and things will happen. In the month of July, Robbie Keane, David Beckham, and Landon Donovan combined for 11 goals and 11 assists. This has been a big part of the reason the Galaxy are 7-2-1 in their last ten matches. The hot streak has the Galaxy back in the thick of things, with 33 points placing them either fourth or fifth in the Western Conference depending on how the Seattle Sounders' match ends.

Tonight, in the 62' Robbie Keane found himself at the left corner of the penalty area with the ball. He passed through a defender to Mike Magee who stood inside the arc atop the penalty area. Keane made a run and Magee faked like he was giving it off, then took a shot on goal. The attempt bounced and curled inside the left post to give the Galaxy a one goal lead they would not relinquish.

Keane had only one recorded shot attempt, though he had other chances. His shot came in the 26', along outside the penalty area Keane let loose but it was struck well high. The other shots on goal for the Galaxy came from David Junior Lopes on a Hector Jimenez corner kick, and Mike Magee shot from well outside the box assisted by Marcelo Sarvas.

Next up for the Galaxy is a friendly against Real Madrid on Thursday at The Home Depot Center. Then it's on up to Century Link Field in Seattle in a terribly significant match. Only one point separates the Galaxy, Vancouver, and Seattle right now.
