Vancouver, British Columbia • Landon Donovan scored in the third minute and the Los Angeles Galaxy held on to beat the Vancouver Whitecaps 1-0 Saturday night for their fifth straight win.

Donovan got his fourth goal in the last three matches to help the Galaxy (12-9-4) secure sole possession of second place in the Western Conference.

Donovan scored after A.J. DeLaGarza's pass hit Whitecaps central defender Johnny Leveron and came to him. The Galaxy captain planted a high shot in the left corner of the net over Whitecaps goalkeeper David Ousted.

The Whitecaps (10-9-6) lost their second straight overall and just their second at home this season.

Impact 5, Dynamo 0 • In Montreal, Marco Di Vaio scored two goals to lead Montreal past Houston.

Di Vaio and Felipe Martins scored minutes apart in the first half to put the Impact (12-7-5) up by two. Jeb Brovsky made it 3-0 in the 58th minute and Di Vaio finished off a two-man break on a pass from Patrice Bernier for his fourth goal in two games.

Andrea Pisano added his first Major League Soccer goal and the Impact won their second in a row, and their third straight at Saputo Stadium.
