VIDEO: Watch LA Galaxy launch astonishing comeback, beat Colorado 4-3

Aug 21, 2014, 10:05 AM EDT

A breathless game took place in Colorado on Wednesday as the Rapids and LA Galaxy played out a classic in Commerce City.

The Rapids led 3-1 after 30 minutes as Marlon Hairston, Edson Buddle and Marc Burch all scored, while LA’s solitary strike came from Robbie Keane as the Galaxy trailed 3-1 at half time and looked to be dead and buried.

Think again, my friends.

Omar Gonzalez pulled a goal back for LA just before the hour mark to make it 3-2, then with 20 minutes left new signing Alan Gordon made it 3-3.

That set the stage for Landon Donovan to complete the remarkable comeback, as the U.S. legend netted the game-winner with 10 minutes to go as LA prevailed 4-3. What a game. What a comeback. What a win for LA. Talk about a pivotal moment in a season.

Watch the video highlights above to see the madness play out. Love me some Midweek MLS action!

    That game was bananas. Glad for Edson Buddle on getting his 100th career MLS goal, but you know the feeling is probably a little soured for him after they let that lead slip.

    Colorado are done, Drew Moor was huge for them. But congratulations to Buddle for breaking his century, tip o’ the hat to him!

    Hot damn, JPW…that was some fine commentary. Nice!

    Great game, by the way.
