MIKE MAGEE has played every position for Los Angeles this season - defender, midfielder, forward, even goalkeeper for one game. Yesterday, it was his scoring touch that gave the Galaxy an advantage in their playoff series against New York.
Magee scored the only goal of the match, off a long cross from David Beckham, in the 15th minute, giving the visiting Galaxy a 1-0 win against the Red Bulls in the first leg of the Western Conference semifinals.
Magee's goal enables Los Angeles to head home needing only a tie or a win on Thursday night to advance to the conference final. The Galaxy is 12-0-5 at home this season.
