Los Dos and Austin Aztex Battle it out at StubHub

Los Dos log first “W” of 2015

Sunday evening at StubHub Center’s Track and Field Stadium began quietly, in front of a crowd of 727 loyal fans, including LA Galaxy’s Head Coach Bruce Arena and one of last night’s stars, Bradford Jamieson IV. But LA Galaxy II ended a drought and won their first match of the 2015 season with a 2-1 victory over Austin Aztex.

Following a lackluster first half that saw numerous unprofitable chances from Los Dos, Ariel Lassiter scored the first goal of the match in the 65th minute off of Raul Mendiola’s well-timed assist. It was Mendiola’s 4th assist of the seaon, putting him in the league’s top spot. Austin’s reply came in the 80th minute with Touray Sainey taking advantage of a loose ball and neatly tying up the scoreline. Minutes later, LA’s #40 finally got his moment of glory, his first goal of the season, with a skillfully-placed goal in the 84th minute from Ryo Fujii’s assist. Raul’s performance definitely caught everyone’s eyes tonight.

LA Galaxy II (1-3-1) return next weekend when they take on Real Monarchs SLC April 25 at 7:30 p.m. PT at Rio Tinto Stadium.
