CARSON, Calif. (AP) — Robbie Keane and Stefan Ishizaki scored goals late in the first half, Baggio Husidic added another shortly after halftime, and the Los Angeles Galaxy won the first meeting with rival Chivas USA with a 3-0 victory Sunday afternoon.
Keane scored in the 37th minute, Ishizaki in the 41st and Husidic in the 56th for the Galaxy (1-1-1), who are 16-1-4 in the SuperClasico since the end of 2007. Ishizaki's and Husidic's goals were their first with Los Angeles.
Landon Donovan assisted Ishizaki's and Husidic's goals, giving him 119 in his career, just 16 off Steve Ralston's MLS record.
Chivas USA (1-2-2), the home team at StubHub Center, didn't put a shot on frame until the 82nd minute and created little until the final 10 minutes.
Keane gave the Galaxy the lead after Dan Gargan headed an Ishizaki cross into the goalmouth. The ball was skipping past Chivas goalkeeper Dan Kennedy, who got a touch on the ball as Keane arrived to knock it home.
