The LA Galaxy and Portland Timbers traded go ahead goals and equalizers on Friday with a 2-2 draw the ultimate result. Now watch the highlights! Two minutes packed with four goals and both goalkeepers coming up big to prevent big chances.
Marcelo Sarvas looms large on the highlight reel, with both of his curving shots. He was crazy unlucky on the first, making the second almost feel like a debt owed. The Portland Timbers don't show up until the second half and their equalizer, which is how things felt live as well.
The early chance where Juninho sprung Robbie Keane still looms large as a big missed opportunity. With Ricketts coming out to close down the angle, it's a ball that Keane will usually chip or try to dribble around. It's unusual for Keane to just kick it right at the keeper giving up on the play.
On a side note, it seems the national networks are starting to claim exclusivity to highlights of matches they broadcast. While this means missing out on the extended highlights MLS offers, any sign that the nat'l networks are starting to place value on MLS highlights is a good one.
