Beckham Scores 1st Goal Of Season To Lead Galaxy Past Timbers

CARSON, Calif. (AP) — Landon Donovan and David Beckham scored goals and Los Angeles beat the Portland Timbers 3-1 on Saturday night, snapping the Galaxy’s two-game losing skid.

Juninho scored the go-ahead goal in the 83rd minute for the defending champion Galaxy, who had struggled in the season’s early going.

Kris Boyd scored goal for Portland, which lost its fourth straight.

Juninho broke a deadlock when he won a loose ball outside the box. The Brazilian unleashed a strike from 23 yards out that never got more than a few inches off the ground and nestled into the left corner of the net.

Beckham followed it with his first goal of the season, from long range, and then went sliding into the corner area to celebrate.
