CARSON, Calif. (AP) - Giovani dos Santos and Daniel Steres scored second-half goals and the Los Angeles Galaxy rallied for a 2-2 draw with the Chicago Fire on Saturday night.

Brian Rowe had four saves, including a pair of sprawling stops in the opening minutes and another in the 76th minute, for Los Angeles (2-5-2).

Dos Santos tied it in the 65th - tapping in the finish of Dave Romney’s header, off a corner kick by Romain Alessandrini - from point-blank range.

David Accam gave Chicago (3-3-3) a 1-0 lead in the 13th minute, converting from the spot after Nemanja Nikolic drew a penalty against Jelle Van Damme at the top of the 6-yard box. Nikolic doubled the lead moments later, rolling a feed from Accam past a charging Rowe into the back of the net.

Steres, from near the right corner of the 6-yard box, flicked a header - off another corner kick by Alessandrini - inside the far post to make it 2-1 early in the second half.

The Fire have been outscored 29-10 in their last 10 road games and are 0-8-2 over that span.
