HOUSTON - Canadian Andre Hainaults goal in the 57th minute gave the Houston Dynamo a 2-1 victory over David Beckham and the Los Angeles Galaxy on Saturday. J.J. Watt Jersey . Hainault. from Hudson, Que., scored to break a 1-1 game on a header off a corner kick by Brad Davis. He headed the ball from the near post to the inside far post for the winner in a game played in temperatures that topped 90 degrees. "We knew they were tired," Hainault said. "We did the right things. We kept the ball as much as we could. The game came down to set pieces, we know they are important, and that is what happened today. We held on. We defended well. We are tired, but we are happy." Coach Dominic Kinnear gave credit to his team for coming back after falling behind early. "It was a great goal by Andre," Kinnear said. "It was a little bit of luck getting back into the game. Great ball by Brad, Andre attacked it well. Three points is what we came here for and three points is what we got." The win extended Houstons unbeaten streak to four, while Los Angeles is winless in seven in a row and has lost three straight by one goal each. Los Angeles coach Bruce Arena said the Galaxy were trying to conserve energy by not running the length of the field. Game time temperature was 91 degrees, with no wind at field level. "The pace of the game changed because of the conditions," Arena said. "The players are not able to play at a high pace under these conditions for a long time. No one is made to play in this heat for 90 minutes." 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 LAs Mike Magee. A shot by Houstons Brian Ching went off the crossbar, then bounced off Magee in front of the goalmouth and into the net. Beckham 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. "It is disappointing considering we started the game so well," Beckham said. "We knew it was going to be difficult considering the time of the kickoff and the heat." Beckham showed frustration throughout the game, especially in the second half. He said the frustration was geared toward referee Silviu Petrescu. "I dont think the referee could get any worse than our last game," Beckham said. "I shouldnt say too much because I dont want to get myself in trouble. The standard isnt good enough. Its that simple." Landon Donovan and Robbie Keane did not play for the Galaxy; Geoff Cameron missed the game for the Dynamo. Arian Foster Signed Jersey .

Seven relatively unknown young athletes, nominated by a group of British Olympic champions, simultaneously lit 204 copper petals, which rose to ignite the Olympic cauldron, which will burn throughout the duration of the Summer Games. Sir Paul McCartney closed the Opening Ceremony, performing ‘Hey Jude. From a race boat on the Thames River, soccer players David Beckham and Jade Bailey ignited the torch of Sir Steve Redgrave, who jogged into Olympic Stadium. Redgrave, a five-time Olympian in rowing, passed the torch off to the group of youngsters. Iconic boxing legend Muhammad Ali was also part of the ceremony as an honourary flag bearer. As is tradition, Greece—the founding nation of the Olympic Games—started the procession of teams marching into Olympic Stadium. Alphabetically, all 204 nations made their way one-by-one into Olympic Stadium. Team Canadas 277-member team was one of the earlier arrivals, led by flag bearer Simon Whitfield. Dressed in red-and-white jackets and khaki pants, the Canadian athletes strolled around the track waving miniature flags, snapping pictures and soaking in the festivities. "What a rush. It was so amazing and was such an honour to be here tonight leading all of the athletes that I respect," Whitfield said. Also a tradition, the host Great Britain entered Olympic Stadium last to a rousing ovation and under a shower of confetti. They also entered the London 2012 Olympic Games as the largest delegation of nations that will compete, with a dozen more than the United States 530 athletes. Cyclist Bradley Wiggins, who became the first-ever Brit to win the Tour de France this year, rang the bell to kick off the festivities. With a reported budget upwards of $40 million, faamed movie director Danny Boyles secretive production came to life in a spectacular Opening Ceremony for London 2012. Andre Johnson Womens Jersey. Just prior to the start, Boyle explained to CTVOlympics Host Brian Williams that the Opening Ceremony would be a live movie, synchronizing sound, picture and all the activity going on in the stadium. One of the prominent moments was dedicated to the Industrial Revolution, with a laborious construction scene eventually ending with the formation and raising of the five Olympic Rings. Scenes quickly shifted gears to much of the familiar celebrities and stories, synonymous with the United Kingdom. Daniel Craig revisited his role as James Bond, who escorted Queen Elizabeth from the Royal Palace via helicopter to Olympic Stadium. The act included the pair jumping out of the helicopter and parachuting down to the stadium—Bond letting the Queen lead the jump out of the helicopter. Some of the memorable British storybook characters like Peter Pan and Mary Poppins also made appearances, and the London Symphony Orchestras rendition of Chariots of Fire was aided by comedian Rowan Atkinson, reprising his Mr. Bean character, bumbling through a one-finger keyboard assignment. A neatly comprised love story among a group of 20-something party goers—which was spawned through a single text message— helped run through the British explosion of music into pop culture, as the party-goers in the act danced to music that spanned from the Beatles, to Queen, Eurthymics, David Bowie, the Sex Pistols and countless others. The end scene depicted the social media explosion that evolved from that single text, marking a new era that will be on full display at London 2012, through social avenues like Twitter and Facebook. Coincidentally, the Internet was founded by Brit Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the World Wide Web, who was also part of the festivities. ' ' '
