LA Galaxy lose Ricketts, Saunders in event filled draw

Bruce Arena had to draft Mike Magee in the 44th minute as emergency goalkeeper after losing Donovan Ricketts with a broken forearm following a nasty collision and Josh Saunders, his replacement ejected for lashing out at the obnoxious Steven Lenhart.
Magee the winger turned goalie had little to do for the most part against an unambitious San Jose side who failed to press the man advantage. He however managed to pull of a series of fine saves when they finally came alive in the last 10 minutes. The Galaxy face a goalkeeping crisis now with Ricketts out for possibly weeks and Saunders out for the next two matches. Brian Perk, a U20 standout will probably get his first start for the Galaxy
