Houston Dynamo v. L.A. Galaxy: Postmatch Video

In their last 2009 MLS regular season home match on Sunday, the Houston Dynamo hosted the Los Angeles Galaxy in a physical 0-0 draw. Over 29,400 fans showed up at Robertson Stadium on a lovely fall afternoon to see David Beckham make his Houston debut. There might not have been any scoring in Sunday's match, but casual fans were treated to the kind of game that makes draws exciting. The Dynamo managed 11 shots, 4 of which were on goal but saved by the spot-on goal keeping of Galaxy's Donovan Ricketts. Meanwhile, Pat Onstad racked up 3 saves and Geoff Cameron made a bicycle kick save in the 52nd minute. Unfortunately for the Dynamo, star forward Brian Ching received a red card in the 84th minute, meaning he'll miss next weekend's season finale against Chivas USA in Los Angeles.
