Toronto FC and the Galaxy played to a scoreless draw Saturday night amid nearby G20 Summit protests that prevented several thousand fans from attending the game at BMO Field. Subway shutdowns, altered bus routes and the uncertainty over road closings contributed to the smaller-than-usual crowd. The attendance was announced at 18,809, though it didn't reflect the actual number of fans in the stands. The Galaxy (10-1-3) is playing without stars Landon Donovan and Edson Buddle, members of the U.S. team eliminated from the World Cup earlier Saturday.

It was supposed to be the sendoff game for Galaxy forwards Landon Donovan and Edson Buddle before they leave to join the U.S. team as it prepares for the World Cup. Posters were handed out. Handmade signs decorated the stadium. One said: "Buddle Scores Again," with the letters U, S and A picked out in red. But Buddle didn't score. Neither did Donovan. Neither did the Galaxy. Toronto FC came into Saturday night's Major League Soccer game at the Home Depot Center unimpressed by the fact that Buddle leads the league in goals and that Donovan leads it in assists.

CHIVAS USA TONIGHT VS COLORADO RAPIDS When: 7:30. Where: Home Depot Center. Records: Season opener for both teams. Record vs Rapids (2009 ): 1-1 Update: Former Chivas USA coach Preki, now coaching Toronto FC, on Thursday made Chivas USA's task against the Rapids a little tougher by trading U.S. national team defender Marvell Wynne, the top pick in the 2006 MLS draft, to Colorado in exchange for midfielder Nick LaBrocca. The Rapids also feature U.S. national team forward Connor Casey.

Whatever it was that got into David Beckham on Saturday night, the Galaxy needs to find it, bottle it and give it to him in regular doses. Beckham was everywhere, turning in 90 minutes of nonstop running in one of the most energetic and rewarding performances of his three-season spell in Major League Soccer. Productive too. Beckham scored one goal, created another and, but for bad luck, might have scored three as the Galaxy defeated Toronto FC, 2-0, at the Home Depot Center to solidify its MLS playoff chances.

TORONTO -- Daniel Paladini and Jonathan Bornstein scored to rally Chivas USA to a 3-1 victory over Toronto FC on Saturday. Ante Razov had a goal and two assists for Chivas USA (8-9-6), which was missing nine players -- two to international play, five to injuries and two to yellow cards. Tyler Rosenlund scored for Toronto (7-11-5), which was also missing nine regulars -- including eight to international duty -- and has just one win in its last 10 games. Rosenlund gave Toronto a 1-0 lead in the 30th minute, receiving a beautiful pass across the goal box from Rohan Ricketts and putting a shot past Chivas goalie Zach Thornton.

What do the national soccer teams of the U.S., Canada, Guatemala, Honduras, Jamaica, New Zealand, Trinidad and Tobago and Wales have in common this week? Answer: Every one of them has a player from Toronto FC on its roster. Normally, that is the sort of recognition that Major League Soccer clubs crave. All the top clubs in the world consist almost entirely of national team players. But because MLS has spent 13 years going its own way and scheduling league games when it knows they will conflict with international matches, and that the best players will therefore be unavailable, the fans are being robbed.
