Orlando City beats LA Galaxy in stoppage time
LOS ANGELES- Unfortunately, after a nice showing against Montreal last week, the LA Galaxy were not able to keep up their winning streak, Orlando City, however, was. Orlando earned their fourth win in a row at home on Saturday afternoon. They beat the Galaxy 2-1, after Cyle Larin sunk the ball in the net in the 91st minute of the game.
The game was a struggle for the Galaxy from the start. Will Johnson scored for Orlando in the first 10 minutes of the game. Despite being down for almost the entirety of the match, the LA Galaxy kept fighting. They weren’t having much luck until finally, in the 83rd minute, they responded. Emerging talent for the Galaxy, Romain Alessandrini was the one to get the goal and tie the game up. Unfortunately, it didn’t last for long and Larin finished the Galaxy off with his stoppage time goal.
The LA Galaxy have had to deal with their fair share of adjustments and injuries this year. However, it seems every time they start to get their momentum back and show improvements, it ends with them taking one step forward only to take two steps back.
Next they will take on the Seattle Sounders at home on Sunday April 23rd at 1:00. The game will be broadcasted on ESPN.
