Mike Magee had a goal and an assist to help the Galaxy overcome the absence of David Beckham and beat the Chicago Fire, 2-0, Wednesday night at Toyota Park. Magee, a native of Chicago, scored in the 23rd minute after Jovan Kirovski converted a midfield turnover into a counter-attack for the Galaxy (8-4-10). The Galaxy was playing without Beckham after he earned a one-game suspension for a red card in Saturday's 2-0 loss to Seattle. In the 54th minute, Magee sent a lead pass to Landon Donovan, who raced 50 yards past two defenders before scoring past goalkeeper Jon Busch.

Playing without their two top scorers for the fourth straight match, there had to be some question as to whether the Galaxy could keep producing goals Saturday against the Houston Dynamo. And that question persisted for nearly a minute until Jovan Kirovski scored on a header, starting the Galaxy on its way to a relatively easy 4-1 victory in front of 20,826 at the Home Depot Center. Kirovski scored off a crossing pass from the right side by Sean Franklin in the game's first minute.

The Galaxy took back the top position in Major League Soccer's overall table with a convincing 3-1 win over the Columbus Crew at the Home Depot Center on Saturday night. Real Salt Lake briefly held the top spot after tying both Columbus and L.A. with points after a win over Seattle on Thursday, but now the Galaxy (14-5-5) is ahead by three points with all three having played 24 games. Columbus (13-6-5) looked out of sorts from the opening whistle, and dropped to 0-4-4 on the road vs, Western Conference teams this season.

— The Seattle Sounders' game plan Saturday was simple: Don't let Edson Buddle score. And in that they were successful, becoming only the third MLS team this season to shut out the league's scoring leader. But they didn't do so well against the rest of the Galaxy. Because with everybody in a Seattle uniform shadowing Buddle, the rest of the team was left to run free, and four of them — Jovan Kirovski, Omar Gonzalez, Todd Dunivant and Landon Donovan — scored their first goals of the season in a 4-0 rout in front of a record crowd of 36,273 at Qwest Field.
