Rivalry between LA and SJ heats up
The Galaxy dismissed alot of opportunities earlier in the game, but the Earthquakes quickly took a 1-0 lead in the 41st minute with an incredible counterattack. The play began with a 3-on-2 breakaway where De Rosario eventually blasted a shot from the right side, but was denied by Galaxy goalkeeper Kevin Hartman. But Galaxy defender Chris Aloisi couldn't clear the ball and the Earthquakes Brian Ching finally corraled the loose ball before slipping a pass to the completely unmarked De Rosario on the left side who slipped in the go-ahead goal.

Andreas Herzog(LA) had seven corner kicks in the first half, but the first six were for naught. San Jose goalkeeper Pat Onstad made four saves in the first half, including two in the 42nd and 43rd minute that stopped headers from Jovan Kirovski and Ruiz. in the 46 minute During the Galaxy's tenth corner kick Chris Albright(LA) headed Herzog's corner from the right toward the far post where Ruiz finally bundled the ball over the line from close range for his seventh goal of the season as Quakes 'keeper Pat Onstad fought desperately to keep it out.

The Galaxy brought in Kirovski to help take some of the pressure off Ruiz and the goal scored by Ruiz in the 55th minute perfectly illustrated. Midfielder Ned Grabavoy accepted a pass from Ricky Lewis and found space near the end line before sliding the ball back into the middle of the penalty area. But instead of sending it to the streaking Kirovski, who had two San Jose defenders surrounding him, his pass trickled back to an open Ruiz, and he had no trouble poking the ball into the far-side corner for his second goal of the night.

The Earthquakes had their chances and Landon Donovan(SJ) had the best chance for scoring the equalizing goal in the 86th minute but goalkeeper Kevn Hartman quickly came out and took the ball from Donovan. Chris Aloisi then cleared the danger after Donovan's pass was deflected toward the middle of the penalty box.

Brian Mullan(SJ) who was cautioned earlier in the match recieved his second caution of the game when he exposed his cleats in a hard slide tackle on Ruiz.

The Galaxy host the Colorado Rapids on Saturday July 10th in a match to be televised live on Fox Sports World and Fox Sports en Espanol (10 p.m. ET). San Jose will also be in action Saturday when they take on the MetroStars (4 p.m., ESPN2).
