Los Angeles 1, 0

Preview | Box Score | Recap

HOUSTON (TICKER) Santino Quaranta made a strong first impression in his debut with the Los Angeles Galaxy.

Quaranta scored in the 69th minute to lead the Galaxy to a 1-0 triumph over the Houston Dynamo.

With the victory, Los Angeles (6-10-5) extended its unbeaten streak to seven games. The worst offensive team in the Western Conference, the Galaxy recently acquired Quaranta from powerhouse D.C. United, and the flashy forward did not disappoint.

After entering as a substitute in the 58th minute, Quaranta whistled a shot past goalkeeper Pat Onstad 11 minutes later to give Los Angeles the lead.

Onstad made only one save for Houston (8-5-8), which is winless in its last four games.
