Mls Season Begins: La Galaxy Cruise, New York Snooze

The 2013 Major League Soccer Season began last weekend, with Los Angeles Galaxy picking up where they left off in December.

A first career hat-trick from Mike Magee was added to by Robbie Keane as the Mls Champions cruised to a 4-0 victory over Chicago Fire. Former Chelsea and Tottenham goalkeeper Carlo Cudicini made a shaky start to his league debut, almost gifting Chicago an easy goal when he failed to clear the ball properly early in the match. After that it was all Galaxy, with Magee netting his first half opener thanks to a slight deflection that took it away from goalkeeper Sean Johnson. His second was a curled effort from the edge of the box; his third a brilliant volley amid chaos following a long throw into the penalty area. Keane scored a late fourth when Omar Gonzalez nodded Michael Stephens’ cross down for him to poke home at the near post.
