Last November, when the Galaxy players trudged off the field at Foxboro Stadium, 2-0 losers to Washington D.C. United in Major League Soccer's championship game, one player in particular wore a really grim expression. Yet Joe Franchino was in no way responsible for the loss. He had spent the first title game of his professional career on the bench. That's what hurt the most.

Tampa Bay's Eric Quill scored two goals to help the Mutiny tie the Kansas City Wizards, 2-2, Saturday night before 12,776 at Tampa, Fla. Mamadou Diallo of the Mutiny was held without a goal and finished the regular season with a league-leading 26. Diallo was robbed twice from point-blank range by goalkeeper Tony Meola. Diallo was one short of Roy Lassiter's MLS record of 27 goals set in 1996. The Galaxy plays Tampa Bay in the first round of the playoffs Thursday.

Sometimes it's best to simply tear up the game plan, throw all the bits of paper in the air and see where they land. That's what Galaxy Coach Ruud Gullit did Saturday night, when he reshaped the Los Angeles lineup at halftime and turned a 1-0 deficit into a 2-2 tie with the Houston Dynamo. Two of the players that Gullit left on the field did all the damage. David Beckham provided the passes. Landon Donovan provided the goals, his fourth and fifth of the season.

So the team expressed more relief than pleasure after a 1-0 victory over the Kansas City Wizards at the Rose Bowl. Another low-scoring affair for a club that has yet to score more than one goal in a game this season. "What can I say?" Coach Sigi Schmid asked. "This was a game when I thought we could relax and have a good time.

Draped behind one of the nets at Spartan Stadium Saturday night a hand-painted sign read simply: "Hey MLS, No Shootout." No such luck. For the third time in as many games this Major League Soccer season, the Galaxy was unable to secure a victory in regulation. For the third time, it was forced into the lottery of a shootout. And this time it lost. The Clash prevailed, 4-2, in the shootout after the teams had played to a 1-1 tie in regulation in front of a half-frozen throng of 12,017.
