The MLS All-Stars have held their own against Chelsea through the first half of the MLS All-Star Game. Chris Wondolowski of the MLS broke though with the first score of the evening. The scoring dynamo from the San Jose Earthquakes has scored 51 goals over the past three years and 17 goals over the past 20 MLS games. Wondowlowski went charging to the front of the net and pounced on a cross from Thierry Henry that ricocheted off Chelsea's John Terry, who fell to the ground after the botched clear attempt. Wondolowski took advantage and put it in the corner for the 1-0 lead.
Terry would get a measure of redemption shortly thereafter, evening things up with a header off a Chelsea corner kick. Terry would push off MLS All-Star Aurelien Collin and place the header perfectly in the corner to tie it up. At the end of the first half, Thierry Henry nearly put the MLS All-Stars back in front but his chip shot went just over the top of the goal. Overall, it was a solid showing for the MLS in a relatively quiet first half.
