Gordon's goal gives Galaxy big win over Dynamo

Carson, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Alan Gordon scores in extra time to give the Los Angeles Galaxy a 1-0 win over the Houston Dynamo on Friday night at the Stubhub Center.

Houston enters the clash looking for its third straight victory in league play following triumphs over Toronto FC and the Portland Timbers last weekend at BBVA Compass Stadium.

Los Angeles, meanwhile, is in need of a win and are looking to snap 5-game winless streak and shellacked by expansion side Orlando City SC, 4-0, last Sunday at the Citrus Bowl.

The best chance in the first half came in the eighth minute when Will Bruin marched down the field and smashed a shot that Jaime Penedo had to come up big and kept the game scoreless.

In the 56th minute of the second half, Bruce Arena inserted Robbie Keane to give the Galaxy a shot. After several chances, in the second minute of extra time Keane sent a cross into the centre on the box where Gordon headed it in for the game winner.
