The LA Galaxy and the New England Revolution are two teams headed in the opposite direction. The Galaxy, unbeaten in their last seven matches, made it eight, crushing the hapless Revolution, 5-1.

The home side was led by a pair of braces two goals from Robbie Keane, and two from Gyasi Zardes, with a second half set piece score from Stefan Ishizaki thrown in for good measure.

But anyways, I'm still kind of sleepy from staying up and watching LA Galaxy beat down the New England Revolution, so let's get into it.

A turnover by the New England Revolution, combined with a chipped through ball from Mike Magee gave Amarikwa a breakaway chance in the third minute which he didn't miss, and which turned out to be the only goal in the match.

A positive stretch for the Fire continued Saturday night at Gillette Stadium as a third-minute display of physical prowess by Quincy Amarikwa, who shrugged off the rugged Andrew Farrell to score a third minute winner in a 1-0 road victory over the reeling New England Revolution.

Three points, a win on turf, and a clean sheet. All in one night. The Fire are within four points of the fourth and fifth place teams in the Eastern Conference at the mathematical half way point in their season. An early Quincy Amarikwa goal was enough to get by a New England Revolution side that has lost its fifth consecutive league game and was bounced out of USOC play on Wednesday night.

The Galaxy cleanly beat the Revs, 5 to 1, in a game where two Galaxy players – Gyasi Zardes and Robbie Keane – were simply playing at a higher level than he rest of the players on the field. The fact that they each scored two goals, with Keane assisting brilliantly on both of Zardes' goals, is the most obvious indicator.

The Union beat the Revs 3 to 1 Saturday night in what seemed to be a sloppily played game by both sides. I am not sure whether my impression was unfairly influenced by watching too many World Cup games played at a higher level, whether the Revs' performance still suffers from playing on artificial turf as opposed to natural grass (there is still a perceptible difference, despite the new field turf), or whether the two-week World Cup break in MLS play simply made both teams rusty.
