Donovan passes MLS scoring record in Galaxy win over Union, Earthquakes rock Dynamo 3-0

  • Print

CARSON, Calif. - Landon Donovan broke the Major League Soccer scoring record Sunday with his 135th and 136th regular-season goals in the Los Angeles Galaxy's 4-1 victory over the Philadelphia Union.

Playing for the first time since being cut from the U.S. World Cup team, Donovan surpassed a mark he shared with Jeff Cunningham in the 49th minute with his first goal of the season, then added another in the 81st. Donovan was replaced by Brazilian forward Samuel a minute later, departing to a standing ovation from the crowd of 21,010.

Robbie Keane also scored for Los Angeles, while Maurice Edu — who also missed out on World Cup selection — scored for Philadelphia.

In Santa Clara, California, Khari Stephenson broke a nearly yearlong scoring drought with two goals to help the San Jose Earthquakes beat the Houston Dynamo 3-0.

Stephenson, who last scored on June 8 for Real Salt Lake, converted off an indirect free kick from deep inside Houston's penalty area in the first half, then converted from the penalty spot in the second half.

Atiba Harris knocked in the rebound of his own header off the post for the clincher.
