Chivas USA Coach Robin Fraser will gladly take his turnarounds wherever he can get them. So although some may look at Saturday's 1-1 tie with the Seattle Sounders as a disappointment, Fraser said he was happy to at least escape with a point. After all, when you're coaching a team that has lost 38 times in less than 21/2 seasons, a tie can look pretty good. "It is what it is. At the end of the day, we got a point," Fraser said.

Eighteen minutes into his Major League Soccer debut, Galaxy goalkeeper Brian Perk faced a decision: Left or right? Perk chose right, literally and figuratively, and blocked Seattle Sounders forward Fredy Montero's penalty kick to preserve a scoreless draw. "Just looking at him, I thought he was a crafty player," Perk said. "Thought he'd show me one way and then go the other. That's what he did. Lucky I guessed the right way. " The penalty kick came after Montero took a shot that appeared to be destined for the back of the net until the elbow of Galaxy defender Omar Gonzalez deflected the ball directly to Perk.
