CARSON, Calif. – An appearance in MLS Cup 2011 might be the culmination of a tremendous season for the LA Galaxy, but Sunday’s 3-1 win over Real Salt Lake was the team’s reward for a week’s worth of hard work.

The Galaxy won their third match in eight days by beating RSL and will now play host to Houston Dynamo in MLS Cup on Nov. 20.

CARSON, Calif. – Supporters’ Shield. CONCACAF Champions League. MLS Cup.

Those were the LA Galaxy’s major goals to accomplish before the season began, and after defeating Real Salt Lake 3-1 in Sunday’s Western Conference Championship, the club is now in position to go three-for-three.

CARSON, Calif. – After nursing an injury for a week, Jámison Olave made the starting XI for Real Salt Lake in the Western Conference Championship on Sunday night. His presence was deemed necessary to help thwart the LA Galaxy’s potent counterattack, but in the end, it was not to be as RSL fell 3-1.

KANSAS CITY, Kan. – When Brad Davis went down to a right quad injury in the first half of the Eastern Conference Championship on Sunday, many believed his inability to contribute would hurt the Dynamo’s chances on the night.

However, Davis’ forced absence actually boosted his team more than he would ever know, as the Dynamo stormed out of Livestrong Sporting Park with a 2-0 win and a berth in MLS Cup 2011.

This one lived up to its billing. The Galaxy and Real Salt Lake came out firing, and in the end, LA just had a little bit more in the tank — and a little bit more luck.

Both teams kissed the crossbar, but RSL hit it twice, and the second one was a back-breaker. Just seconds after Mike Magee had given the Galaxy a 2-1 lead, Fabián Espíndola turned the LA defense inside-out and found room to squeeze off a shot in the box. Somehow it drifted over Josh Saunders, but pinged off the underside of the crossbar and came back out.
