HOUSTON -- Andre Hainault’s goal in the 57th minute gave the Houston Dynamo a 2-1 victory over David Beckham and the Los Angeles Galaxy on Saturday.

Hainault scored to break a 1-all game on a header off a corner kick by Brad Davis. He headed the ball from the near post to the inside far post.

The Galaxy took a 1-0 lead on a goal by Edson Buddle in the 10th minute. Houston tied it in the 38th minute on an own goal by LA’s Mike Magee. A shot by Houston’s Brian Ching went off the crossbar, then bounced off Magee in front of the goalmouth and into the net.

Beckman missed two good scoring chances. A 30-yard free kick in the 51st minute was knocked over the crossbar by goalie Tally Hall, and his 25-yard free kick in the 83rd minute also was knocked away by Hall.

Landon Donovan and Robbie Keane did not play for the Galaxy; Geoff Cameron missed the game for the Dynamo.
