Dynamo 1, Los Angeles Galaxy 3

Renewing an Open Cup rivalry that carried back to Dynamo players’ San Jose days, the teams traded early goals from Alan Gordon for the Galaxy and Dwayne De Rosario for the Dynamo. Los Angeles pulled away, however, with a free kick from Landon Donovan late in the first half, and an insurance goal from Santino Quaranta in stoppage time.
