Third times a charm: LA Galaxy gets their third win in a row!
LOS ANGELES – Saturday, the LA Galaxy took on the San Jose Earthquakes and came out of another game victorious, beating them 4-2.
It was actually San Jose who got the ball rolling when Chris Wondolowski scored in minute 10, putting the LA Galaxy down 1-0. Earlier in the season they might not have recovered, however, the LA Galaxy is continuing to improve, and just 9 minutes after San Jose scored, they responded. Joao Pedro got the goal, tying the game up, 1-1.
Then, in minute 35, the LA Galaxy was back at it. Star player Dos Santos smashed the ball in on a penalty kick, putting the Galaxy ahead for the first time in the game. However, that lead didn’t last long, just two minutes later the match was tied up once again when Danny Hoesen scored for the Quakes.
It was looking like the game would be tied up at the half, until, in minute 44, Bradley Diallo crossed the ball in front of the goal. It then deflected off Earthquakes defender Victor Bernardez and went in, putting the Galaxy in the lead 3-2.
After an eventful first half, the second one was much more sparse in comparison, with only one goal being made. It was by Dos Santos, who got his second goal of the game in minute 64. This put the final score at 4-2.
This game was a big win for the Galaxy, it marked their 3rd win in a row on the road and showed that they can come back from being down.
Next, the LA Galaxy will take on D.C. United on Saturday at 4:00, while the Quakes will play Portland next Friday at 8:00.
