MLS Cup Final 2011, Los Angeles Galaxy Vs. Houston Dynamo Live: Adam Cristman Wastes Big Chance

The LA Galaxy have replied to that early semi-scare by mounting an interesting attack of their own, which eventually breaks down when a cross from the left is cut out. However, it's the Houston Dynamo with the next shot - Corey Ashe managed to weave his way through the entire midfield (beating David Beckham one on one something like fifty eight times in the process) before scuffing a tame shot that Josh Saunders could easily retrieve.

After Saunders gathered, the Galaxy promptly marched right back up the pitch, with Sean Franklin and Landon Donovan combining to earn a corner, and from said corner Adam Cristman found himself with a free header six yards out. Fortunately for the Dynamo, he made a mess of it, heading well wide. That was really appalling defending from Houston, who've got to do better on set pieces when Beckham is the one delivering them. They do a beter job on the next couple of dead balls, but Bobbie Boswell has picked up a yellow card in the process after a deliberate handball.
