For a change, Stade Olympique is not only associated with memories of a city's hay days and an ongoing bill for the city's taxpayers. The Montreal Impact continue their unbeaten streak at the Big O with a 1-1 tie against the MLS Galacticos, the LA Galaxy.

Davy Arnaud gave an early lead to the Impact at the 9th minute when Nelson Rivas played a long ball that Bernardo Corradi could not get to but find itself behind the LA defense and a streaking Davy Arnaud. The Montreal Impact captain did not ask twice and found himself alone in front of 22-year old California native, Brian Perk and scores his 2nd goal of the season.For the LA Galaxy, who else then David Beckham to get the equalizer from a trademark Beckham-esque freekick and just drives that ball into the net past a diving Donovan Ricketts.
