LA 5 SJ 2: Gerrard debut in MLS
It was a team effort but frontmen Keane and Gerrard headlined the game.
San Jose capitalized on some early sluggishness and jumped out to a 2-0 lead.
Anyway, the Galaxy began a comeback when Gerrard took a hit in the penalty box and Keane took the PK to make it 2-1. Shortly after that, Gerrard received a deflected entry pass and put it in the net for his first MLS goal and leveled the match 2-2.
In the second half, Gerrard fed a low to the ground free kick that Keane beat the defender to and poked in to make it 3-2. Gerrard slapped in a loose ball into the net but the goal was waived off due to a foul in the box just moments prior. Keane took the PK and made it 4-2. Late in the game a dejected SJ could not keep up with the scramble in front of the goalkeeper and Lletget headed in to make it 5-2.
When the Galaxy players at Gold Cup duty return and Gio dos Santos gets added, the team has the potential to make a run at another MLS title. Of course, will all the pieces fit together? And, there is always the injury bug that can bite at any time. Just ask the Cleveland Cavaliers!
It was quite the fan experience to be in the General Admissions section 119. To our left was the Angel City Brigade supporter club and to our right were the San Jose traveling supporters. Both groups had their drums going and were in full voice singing and chanting the whole game!
