CARSON, Calif. (AP) -- Landon Donovan scored a goal and set up another for his first points since his return to soccer, and the Los Angeles Galaxy snapped Sporting Kansas City's 545-minute streak of shutout defense during a 2-0 victory Saturday night.

Donovan set up Marcelo Sarvas' 27th-minute goal before scoring his own goal on a pass from Robbie Keane in the 74th minute for the two-time defending MLS champions (3-1-2), who ended a four-match winless skid with big performances from their two biggest stars.

Sporting KC's (4-2-2) three-match winning streak ended with their first goals allowed since March 9. The Eastern Conference leaders' shutout streak was the fifth-longest in MLS history.

Los Angeles goalie Carlo Cudicini got his third shutout in his first six MLS matches.
