Around the MLS 7/18/10

Slow day today. An international friendly, a Superliga match-up and only one actual match that counted in the standings to speak of.

Celtic FC 2 - Seattle 1
Seattle couldn't handle the perennial Scottish power after losing their keeper to a red card in the first half. Celtic went up 2-0 in the 64th minute with a strike from Patrick McCourt. Seattle struck back two minutes later, but by then it was already too late and the score stayed 2-1 for the rest of the game.

Los Angeles 2 - Washington DC 1
Landon Donovan started the game off with a 34th minute goal and it was just about all LA from there. United's young gun Andy Najar scored a goal to equalize in the 54th minute, but LA's Edson Buddle struck back quickly and LA kept possession for most of the game after that, keeping DC from the draw.

Houston 1 - Chivas USA 1
The Superliga 2010 group stage game started with Houston hoping for a victory to get to the semifinals. Lovel Palmer scored a very quick goal for Houston in the 6th minute, but Chivas kept getting good chances and finally buried one in the 74th minute, holding the draw until the end.
