Buddle brace as LA Galaxy sink Chivas USA; Davis double for Houston over RSL

LA Galaxy 2 – Chivas USA 0 (MLS, April 1, 2010) Edson Buddle beat Chivas defender Michael Umana to get his head to Sean Franklin’s cross in the seventh minute, and Buddle poked in an insurance goal from six yards after being set up by Landon Donovan in the 87th minute.

Houston Dynamo 2 – Real Salt Lake 1 (MLS, April 1, 2010) Javier Morales gave RSL an early lead after he  buried a low shot past Pat Onstad. Despite having the better of the possession and frustrating the Dynamo for much of the first half, Salt Lake was undone by two penalty decisions against Jamison Olave that allowed Brad Davis to give the Dynamo a second half lead that they held onto for the points.
