GALAXY EMBARK ON FOUR-GAME ROAD TRIP BEGINNING WEDNESDAY NIGHT IN COLORADO: After spending the lion's share of the early part of the 2005 season at The Home Depot Center, the Los Angeles Galaxy (7-2-2, 23 pts) takes to the road for four consecutive matches in the span of 11 days, all against MLS Western Conference rivals. The club opens their swing with a game in Denver on Wednesday, June 15 at the Colorado Rapids before moving on to Dallas for a first-place tussle with FC Dallas at the Cotton Bowl on the weekend. After returning home briefly for a pair of training sessions early next week, the Galaxy will then fly to Salt Lake City for a match with expansion side Real Salt Lake on June 22 and then conclude their travels with a match in San Jose on the 25th of June. All four games on the road trip will be carried on radio in both English (KMPC 1540 am) and Spanish (KMXE 830 am).

DONOVAN'S SECOND-HALF GOAL GIVES GALAXY 1-0 WIN AGAINST RSL: Despite dominating play from the outset, the Los Angeles Galaxy were able to score just once against Real Salt Lake on Saturday night at The Home Depot Center, yet it was all they needed to extend their unbeaten streak to five games with a 1-0 victory. The Galaxy stymied the Real attack for the entire evening, the visitors not registering their first shot until 51 minutes had passed. Just one minute later, the Galaxy took the lead through Landon Donovan, the strike proving to be the game winner. Real has now gone 411 minutes since scoring their last goal.

Hartman is the goalkeeper in MLS history to accomplish the feat and is also the League's all-time leader in Goals Against Average, with a career GAA of 1.16 (entering the 2005 season).
