LA Galaxy’s Gonzalez top MLS defender

Omar Gonzalez of the Los Angeles Galaxy is tough to get past with the soccer ball. The reason is, at 6’5, he is not easy to move past by kicking the ball or using the head or body.

With his toughness in defending, it makes sense that he has been voted the 2011 Major League Soccer Defender of the Year.

The 23-year-old was a 2009 3rd round pick of the Galaxy in the MLS SuperDraft.

Gonzalez has dual citizenship of Mexico and the United States.

Gonzalez received 94.5 of the vote from club officials, media and players groups. Finishing second was Jamison Olave of Real Salt Lake who finished with 50.7.

The percentage totals are from all the votes added together.

Crew rallies to beat Real Salt Lake 2-1; Mendoza, Gardner goals 6 minutes apart key

The Columbus Crew were trailing for over 70 minutes against Real Salt Lake, one of the MLS’ top defensive teams.

Then, in the span of six minutes, “America’s Hardest Working Team” scored two goals which changed the momentum of the game.

Josh Gardner’s first goal in a Crew uniform lifted Columbus to a thrilling come-from-behind 2-1 victory over Real Salt Lake Wednesday night at Crew Stadium. The Crew remained unbeaten at home (4-0-3) and improved to 4-3-6 on the season.

Gardner gave Columbus the lead in the 82nd minute when his shot from 22 yards out hit the left thigh of Real Salt Lake defender Chris Schuler and skipped past goalkeeper Nick Rimando.

The Crew had been trailing when they finally received a break in the 76th minute when Justin Meram was tripped in the box by Jamison Olave and Andres Mendoza converted the penalty kick to tie the game at 1-1.

RSL (6-3-2) had led 1-0 since the 7th minute when Olave scored off a Nelson Gonzalez corner kick.

Scoring any goals against Real Salt Lake is a chore in itself, but two! In its previous four games, they had yielded just one goal.

GAME NOTES:

* Andres Mendoza of the Crew scored his fourth goal of the season.

* Josh Gardner’s goal was his first in MLS play since the 2006 season, when he was with the LA Galaxy.

* Aaron Horton, the Crew’s first Home Grown Player, made his major league debut, coming in for his idol Jeff Cunningham in the 89th minute.

* The Crew are the only MLS team not to score off set pieces in 2011.

* Columbus is now 1-3-4 when allowing the game’s first goal.

* Columbus is 9-7-2 vs Real Salt Lake, 6-1-0 at Crew Stadium.
