Galaxy Cruises Past Chivas Usa, 5-0

USA Boxing swings at Mike Tyson

Robbie Keane scores in Galaxy’s 5-0 win over Chivas USA. By Jim Peltz October 6, 2013, 6:13 p.m. The Galaxy couldn’t have scripted Sunday’s game much better. Needing a victory to stay firmly in Major League Soccer ‘s playoff race, the reigning MLS champion prevailed in game it was expected to win by beating last-place Chivas USA , 5-0, at StubHub Center. The Galaxy’s goals came early and often despite the 92-degree temperature at game time. The Galaxy’s star forwards, Landon Donovan and Robbie Keane , each scored twice and Gyasi Zardes also scored. Also Galaxy Coach Bruce Arena suspended for game against Chivas USA Donovan tied Jeff Cunningham for the MLS all-time scoring record of 134 regular-season goals. Donovan, speaking about holding the record outright with his next goal, said “it would be nice to get it and get it out of the way so that there’s no attention on it.” He added: I would trade, maybe not all of them, but most of them for another championship ring.” When the game ended, the Galaxy was tied with the Colorado Rapids for fourth place with 48 points in the Western Conference. The two teams were only four points behind first-place Real Salt Lake , three points behind second-place Seattle and one point behind third-place Portland, which was playing Vancouver on Sunday night. The top five teams at the end of the regular season qualify for the playoffs. The Galaxy, seeking its third consecutive MLS championship, has three games left in the regular season. This was the third and final game of the regular season between the Galaxy and Chivas USA, which share StubHub Center as their home venue, in what’s known as the “SuperClasico” series. The Galaxy overwhelmed Chivas USA despite the absence of Coach Bruce Arena, who was suspended for the game for leaving the coach’s area during an argument at the previous weekend’s game against Portland. With Dave Sarachan, the team’s associate coach, at the helm, the Galaxy scored in the sixth minute when Keane, standing just inside the six-yard box, took a pass from Donovan and rolled the ball past goalkeeper Dan Kennedy. Donovan scored his first goal in the 23rd minute inside the six-yard box after taking a cross from Zardes, and Zardes scored in the 26th minute when he outdueled Mario de Luna, got free and kicked the ball past Kennedy.

Cuban defector hopes to play soccer for U.S. national team but faces big obstacle

team once trailed by three holes. Bill Haas and Steve Stricker cruised past Adam Scott and Hideki Matsuyama 4 and 3. Webb Simpson and Brandt Snedeker defeated Louis Oosthuizen and Charl Schwartzel 1 up. They rallied from 3 down with six to play to earn the full point. Oosthuizen and Schwartzel, made with three bogeys and a double bogey down the stretch. Jason Dufner and Zach Johnson managed to finish their 4-and-3 victory against Richard Sterne and Marc Leishman on Saturday night. Ernie Els and Brendon de Jonge handed Tiger Woods and Matt Kuchar their first loss of the week with a 1-up victory. Now it’s down to singles. If there is one consolation for the Internationals, it might be this: Many of these American players were on the wrong end of a huge comeback (from 10-6 down) by the Europeans in the 2012 Ryder Cup. It’s something anyway. This is where the matches stood when play was suspended by darkness Saturday night: Phil Mickelson/Keegan Bradley (USA) all square with Jason Day/Graham DeLaet through 13 holes. Bill Haas/Steve Stricker (USA) 2-up on Adam Scott/Hideki Matsuyama through 10 holes. Ernie Els/Brendon de Jonge (International) 2-up on Woods/Kuchar through nine holes.

In his USA Boxing bio, he said his goals were to win a gold medal at the Olympics, turn pro and win every title possible. “We want to be competitive and we want to increase our overall performance in the Olympic Games,” said USA Boxing executive director Anthony Bartkowski. “This is a new strategy of trying to make sure our Olympic-aged athletes are not poached by promoters. In the past, USA Boxing was passive and just accepted it.” Tyson isn’t the only promoter trying to lure amateurs to the pros. Last month, DiBella Entertainment said it signed highly touted 17-year-old Junior “Sugar Boy” Younan of New York to a contract and said he would make his pro debut in late October or early November, after he turned 18. Boxing promoters have long trolled the amateur ranks looking for talent, especially in recent years as the lure of Olympic gold has faded for many fighters. Winning in the Olympics was once a guaranteed way to make millions, but as U.S. Olympic boxing teams have faded so have the prospects for Olympic fighters. The last American man to win an Olympic gold in boxing was Andre Ward in 2004, and last year’s team in London didn’t even medal. USA Boxing, meanwhile, has undergone a series of shake-ups and its funding has been cut by the U.S. Olympic Committee. The executive director of the USOC said Tuesday that boxing, a sport once dominated by Americans, is still trying to find a way to replicate earlier successes. “Boxing is one of those sports that I think we have a very rich tradition in, but not a lot of current performance,” Scott Blackmun said. “I think the recent reorganization of USA Boxing …
