Galaxy vs. Earthquakes recap: Los Angeles ends final road game in 2-2 draw

John Medina

The Galaxy were able to get a draw in their second-to-last game of the MLS season despite being down two of their best players.

The Los Angeles Galaxy were not able to end San Jose's unbeaten streak at home Sunday evening as their final road match of the 2012 MLS season ended in a 2-2 draw.

With David Beckham (left ankle) and Landon Donovan (left knee) sitting out, the Galaxy managed to find some success in the first half, attempting 11 shots compared to two for the Earthquakes. But thanks to a few incredible saves from San Jose keeper Jon Busch, the Galaxy didn't get their first goal until the 58th minute with Robbie Keane killing the cross to give L.A. the 1-0 advantage.

Eight minutes after Marvin Chavez knotted things up in the 61st minute, Edson Buddle responded with an easy header for the Galaxy's final goal of the game.

The Earthquakes got the last score off a diving header from striker Chirs Wondolowski in the 73rd minute to tie things up for good. Wondolowski's goal was his eighth in the last six matches, moving him one goal under the MLS all-time single-season scoring mark.

The Galaxy will close out their MLS season in from of their home crowd next Sunday against the Seattle Sounders.
