LOS ANGELES- The LA Galaxy lost their 3rd game of the season, 4-2, to the Vancouver Whitecaps on Saturday.
Just when things were finally starting to look up for the LA Galaxy, everything fell apart. Coming off of their first win of the season, the Galaxy were looking good in the first half of their match against Vancouver. At halftime, they were up 2-1, courtesy of Romain Alessandrini’s two goals.
If only the game could have ended there. However, instead of keeping the pressure on, the team fell apart. The game all changed in minute 66 when Vancouver managed to score twice in just two minutes. Vancouver scored once more giving them their 4-2 victory. So, in the second half the LA Galaxy managed to throw their lead away, score no goals, and allow Vancouver to score three.
Both coach Curt Onalfo and captain Jelle Van Damme were quick to admit their faults.
“We f***d up pretty bad today. It’s all personal mistakes. This cannot happen,” Van Damme told LAGalaxy.com. “We played an away game, and at the end, we didn’t play well, and we were leading. Until the second goal of [theirs], we had everything under control. We f***d up in five minutes. … It was just bad.”
Next, the LA Galaxy play Montreal on April 7 at 7:30 at StubHub Center.
