Galaxy, Saprissa tie in Champions Cup opener

CARSON, Calif. -- Costa Rican champion Deportivo Saprissa battled the Los Angeles Galaxy to a 0-0 tie in the first game of the CONCACAF Champions Cup quarterfinals Thursday night when defender Jervis Drummond cleared a potential game-winning shot just short of the goal line.

Both teams will conclude the two-game series March 8 in Costa Rica, with the winner advancing to the semifinals.

Drummond, who played for Costa Rica in the 2002 World Cup, cleared Landon Donovan's shot just before it crossed the goal in the 57th minute.

Donovan had beaten two defenders and shot the ball off the right thigh of goalkeeper Jose Francisco Porras, who blocked it at point-blank range before it ricocheted behind him.

Porras also deflected Alan Gordon's 13-yard header with one hand in the 78th minute.

Galaxy goalkeeper Kevin Hartman kept Saprissa scoreless in the 12th minute when he dived to deflect Jose Pablo Fonseca's eight-yard header.

Both goalkeeepers finished with three saves.

Saprissa, the defending champion, won Costa Rica's winter championship last year. The Galaxy won Major League Soccer's championship in November.
