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.

DALLAS - The New York/New Jersey MetroStars won a postseason series for the first time in club history by downing Dallas, 2-1, last night at the Cotton Bowl to sweep the quarterfinal series.

Adolfo Valencia, who scored the game-winner late in overtime in a 2-1 win in Game 1, carried the ball through midfield and sent a pass to Roy Myers on the left side.

A team of scientists, including a Haverford College astronomer, says it has determined that a galaxy discovered in the 1950s may be the largest ever found in the universe. The scientists say the galaxy is 60 times larger in diameter than our own Milky Way galaxy. The newly examined galaxy, located 1.3 billion light-years from Earth, is about 6 million light-years in diameter. A light-year is the distance that light travels in a year, or about six trillion miles. "We don't know of any other galaxy ever found that is bigger," said Stephen P. Boughn, an associate professor of physics and astronomy at Haverford College, who helped determine the galaxy's size.

The grand suzerain of Movement Theatre International, Michael A. Pedretti, last night bragged publicly, in a jovial but most earnest way, that clowns, mimes, jugglers and the whole galaxy of eccentric performers who have finally found a place they can call home under the conglomerate designation of "movement theater" comprise "the national theater of America. " And added, confidently, that "the public knows it - and the press is beginning to know it. " I have news for Pedretti.

The headlines looked like something the principal characters in an old science-fiction movie might be confronted with in an early scene: "Astronomers discover mysterious 'dark matter,' " read The Inquirer's front page on Tuesday. "X-ray data suggest mass of the universe may halt expansion," the New York Times reported. The Washington Post said, "Satellite finds dark matter that may bind the universe. " (To one friend, the Post headline seemed to go too far toward combining astrophysics and cooking advice.

WASHINGTON - Don't worry about when the world as we know it might end. NASA has calculated that our entire Milky Way galaxy will crash into a neighboring galaxy with a direct head-on hit - in 4 billion years. Astronomers in a NASA news conference Thursday said that years of observations from the Hubble Space Telescope provide grisly details of a long-anticipated galactic smashup. Astronomers had seen the Andromeda galaxy coming at us, but thought there was a chance that its sideways motion would make it miss or graze the Milky Way. Hubble readings now indicate that's not the case.

When John Bochanski was 7, he would sit on the porch at night in Washington Township and watch as his grandfather pointed out the constellations. By 12, he was reading everything he could find about astronomy. The following year, he saved up more than $400 from his Gloucester County paper route to buy an 8-inch telescope. Lately he has been setting his sights quite a bit farther: more than 5 quintillion (five followed by 18 zeroes) miles away. That is the distance between Earth and the most distant known star in the Milky Way - a "cool red giant" that Bochanski helped discover while a visiting assistant professor at Haverford College.

Gazing out his picture window before work, former Willingboro resident Tod Lauer appraises his surroundings in the craggy foothills of Tucson, Ariz. Rugged ocher-colored rocks and blooming cacti dot the desert. Coyotes own the nearby ravine. During summertime thunderstorms, lightning bolts darting down from billowing clouds are visible 40 miles away. It's a long way from the pools, parks and schools of Willingboro. Distant, but not forgotten. Lauer, a 1975 graduate of John F. Kennedy High School, has won recent recognition in Time and Discover magazines for his discovery of galaxy migration - the unexpected lateral movement of galaxies, flowing like a river in space rather than steadily away from one another.

Vivian Camphor loves everything Star Wars - the movies, the music, the metaphors for life. So when the Philadelphia Sports Club fitness instructor had the chance to teach "Awaken Your Inner Force," a Jedi-themed exercise class, she jumped at the chance. " Star Wars is the triumph of good over evil no matter what, and these are the things that people can apply to their everyday life, because we all have challenges," said Camphor, 49. Star Wars is the perfect exercise theme, she insisted, "because you have to dig deep within your inner force to overcome challenges, both in life and in the gym. " The cardio boot-camp class combines strength and core exercises, martial arts, Tai Chi, and yoga, all to the Star Wars score.

In a documentary about the making of Star Wars , the venerable Walter Cronkite lauded the first movie for lifting the United States out of our "depression of the '70s," the mood induced by the trauma of Vietnam and the skullduggery of Watergate. We were ready to believe in heroes again, and to affirm an intergalactic morality tale wrapped in dazzling special effects. Since we knew not our preternatural need for Star Wars , it hit us with the force of The Force. We can't reasonably expect J.J. Abrams to deliver the same kind of experience that George Lucas did back then, nailing the zeitgeist with a product we couldn't ask for because we didn't know we needed it. We have asked and asked; finally he's delivered an engaging flick.

Peter Quill (Chris Pratt), one of the central heroes of Marvel's wildly successful comic-book film Guardians of the Galaxy , is a space rogue who was kidnapped as a kid from his Missouri home by a band of marauding interstellar pirates called the Ravagers. There's some planet called Morag, where Quill steals a superspecial orb, and an assassin named Gamora (Zoe Saldana) who goes after him. Huh? Don't worry if descriptions of director James Gunn's Disney film make it sound more complicated than the entire Lord of the Rings saga.

"GUARDIANS of the Galaxy," the Marvel movie everyone scoffed at because no one knew the characters, became the No. 1 movie of the year this past weekend, finishing in first place once again with $16.3 million and upping its domestic gross to nearly $275 million. In another week or so it will pass "Man of Steel," a DC movie featuring a character everyone knew. Throw in another $275 million in foreign box office and "Guardians" is continuing to make Disney's $4 billion purchase of Marvel seem like a bargain.

IT LOOKS AS IF the move by Marvel Studios to announce a sequel to "Guardians of the Galaxy" before the movie opened was a winner. The space romp, starring Chris Pratt and Zoe Saldana , earned a whopping $94 million in its debut weekend, according to studio estimates yesterday, blowing away its most optimistic preopening estimate of $75 million. The opening crushes the previous record opening for an August release, the $69.2 million debut of 2007's "The Bourne Ultimatum.

Desperate for points in the midst of a disappointing season, the Union head to Los Angeles to play the Galaxy on Sunday. With just three games until the league's World Cup break, the team needs to begin turning things around. "Obviously having a two-game road swing on the West Coast is not an ideal time to say they have to get results, but that's, in fact, where we are," manager John Hackworth said Wednesday. "We have to do that. " The match against the Galaxy will come eight days after the Union were dismantled at PPL Park by the New England Revolution, 5-3. The Union fell behind by 5-1 before scoring two late goals.

The Union showed for one half Wednesday night that they were ready for the challenge presented by the Los Angeles Galaxy, the two-time defending champions of Major League Soccer. However, after playing the Galaxy to an entertaining 1-1 draw in the opening 45 minutes, the Union could not sustain their level of play in the second half and the Galaxy, behind the brilliant playmaking of Landon Donovan, dominated late for a 4-1 victory at PPL Park in Chester. In the 71st minute, Donovan, the all-time leading goal-scorer for the United States national team, delivered the first of his two assists - a perfect pass to Ireland international Robbie Keane, who booted the ball past Union keeper Zac MacMath to break a 1-1 tie. Donovan later set up Hector Jimenez in the 80th minute to make it 3-1, and then walked one in alone in the 87th minute against the helpless MacMath for the final score of the game for the Galaxy (5-3-2)

IT WAS A NIGHT to remember for LA Galaxy forward Landon Donovan, but a night to forget for Union forward Jack McInerney and goalkeeper Zac MacMath. The Galaxy successfully targeted McInerney, who was held scoreless after entering last night's game with a league-leading seven goals. MacMath allowed four goals - including an own goal on a corner kick by Donovan - as the Union fell to the Galaxy, 4-1, at PPL Park. "McInerney has been getting a lot of attention lately so they were able to focus on him a lot," said defender Amobi Okugo, who scored the Union's lone goal.
