Colorado just lost to the Houston Dynamo and a sigh of relief was heard from the Galaxy. The loss gives them a sliver of a chance for the playoffs after muffing up their chances against the Crew. Even at this late a stage, the MLS does not have a definitive idea of the playoff picture.
Josh Wicks, a sieve for the Galaxy made way for Josh Saunders at goal and Pat Noonan, proving that no player is irreplaceable, made way for Schelotto, his first start in three matches. But it was the overlooked Alejandro Moreno who scored the only goal for the Crew and then Chad Marshall and Danny O'Rourke took over to render the Galaxy toothless. The most potent offense in the MLS, except for some Buddle highlights, remained quiet.
The Galaxy continue towards a third consecutive playoff exit barring a miracle or some real help from teams like the Dynamo.
