Donovan Scores In 89th Minute To Tie Toronto In Champions League

TORONTO (AP) — Landon Donovan scored the tying goal in the 89th minute and the Los Angeles Galaxy rallied from a 2-0 deficit to secure a 2-2 tie with Toronto FC in the first leg of their CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinals match on Wednesday.

Donovan disappointed a raucous crowd of 47,658 when he hammered home a loose ball following a corner kick by teammate David Beckham, giving Los Angeles a pair of vital away goals in the two-game series.

Mike Magee also scored for the Galaxy, the reigning MLS Cup champions.

Ryan Johnson and Californian rookie Luis Silva scored for Toronto.

The game was played indoors and on an artificial turf surface at Rogers Centre, home of the Toronto Blue Jays, because of concerns about cold weather affecting an outdoor game at TFC’s home stadium, BMO Field.
