Donovan hat trick highlights Dallas-LA 3-3 draw

Update: Dallas 3, Los Angeles 3.

MLS081113Preview: There are two more MLS Western Conference matches on the schedule today -- both with implications for the Sounders.

First up, the Los Angeles Galaxy will visit FC Dallas at 5 p.m. on ESPN2. LA begins the game one point behind Seattle in the standings, and therefore draws even with a tie, moves ahead with a win. Dallas stands one point behind the Galaxy and two behind the Sounders, and therefore needs a win to hop over both. Once this game is in the books, the Sounders will have two games in hand on each.

Here's a preview from tonight: Colorado at Chivas, with the Rapids beginning one point ahead of the Sounders, while the Goats are 17 points below.
