Updates: LA Galaxy, LA Galaxy II, LA Galaxy Academy

On Sunday, LA Galaxy walked out of the California Clasico with only one point against San Jose. Despite dominating the first half, LA was only able to get on the board once. Plenty of missed opportunities, including a missed penalty kick hit off the crossbar, would come back to hurt the Galaxy in the second half. Despite not walking out with all three points, the Galaxy remains in the race for the Supporters’ Shield. If they want the Shield to stay within reach, the Galaxy must defeat Dallas at home this Saturday night.

Saturday night LA Galaxy II hosted their first playoff match after joining USL this season. Despite going down 1-0, LA was able to rally behind Chandler Hoffman and turn things around. Hoffman scored to tie the game at one and provided an assist to Charlie Rugg, who gave LA the lead. After moving past Rochester, Galaxy II will now be facing Sacramento on the road this upcoming Saturday night. LA was able to win just one of four games played between the two sides, that lone victory coming in Sacramento in the final game of the season.

The LA Galaxy Academy teams started their seasons with victories last weekend, and have continued dominating their opponents. After sweeping their opponents at different age groups last week, the Galaxy Academy teams did the same thing when they faced Arsenal FC, outscoring their opponents 14-1. The U-18’s and U-14’s were able to shut out their opponents 5-0 and 6-0, respectively, while the U-16’s obtained a 3-1 victory. That’s six wins in six games for the Galaxy Academy teams, who will be going up north to face the Earthquakes Academy and Juventus this upcoming weekend.

Both the LA Galaxy and Galaxy II are in very important parts of their respective seasons. After the 4-1 defeat in Columbus, the Galaxy was able to make a great comeback in Colorado and continue winning ways at home this past weekend, while LA Galaxy II has secured a spot in the USL Pro postseason.

LA Galaxy:
With recent results, the Galaxy is in fourth place in the West, only five points behind the leader of both the conference as well as the race for the Supporters’ Shield, the Seattle Sounders (and with a game in hand). The Galaxy’s schedule has them playing seven matches in the next month or so, playing a couple of times on just a few days’ rest. This is probably the most crucial part of the season, make sure you’re there supporting the team as they try to take control of the Western Conference.

LA Galaxy II:
It’s been a great first season for LA Galaxy II. While results could have been better on the road, Galaxy II has had a good run at home. This past Sunday, Galaxy II gave up a 2-0 lead to Wilmington Hammerheads, who would turn things around and be on top 2-3 in the final minutes. The captain Rafael Garcia scored a stoppage time free kick into the upper 90’ to earn a point in a 3-3 draw. With their victory over OKC Energy on August 16th, Galaxy II secured a spot in the postseason, which will begin in just a few weeks. There are three regular season games remaining for Galaxy II, two at home within the next week (8/27, 9/1) and the final game on the road against Sacremento.

One Club.

LA Galaxy Academy:
The U-16 Academy team went 3-0-0 in the group stage and will now host Vadar’s U-16 squad in the quarterfinal matchup of the U.S. Soccer Development Academy Playoffs. In the group stage, the Galaxy Academy scored eight goals while conceding just one. In the regular season, the Galaxy held a country record 21-game unbeaten streak. The quarterfinal game against Vadar will take place Tuesday, July 8 at StubHub Center’s Track Stadium and will kick off at 7:00 p.m. Be there and support LA on their quest for a national championship!

The U-18 Academy team also participated in U.S. Soccer Development Academy Playoffs, but were eliminated in the final minutes of their final group stage match against Montreal. A draw would have let the U-18 squad advance to quarterfinals, but a penalty kick given up in the final minutes eliminated the squad from the competition. Despite their season ending much earlier than anyone expected, we are very proud of the squad, who had great performances throughout the entire year. Be on the lookout for some of these talented players, some who will be playing in college and some who will hopefully be getting minutes with LA Galaxy II and eventually the senior squad.

LA Galaxy II:
The results haven’t been the best for Galaxy II lately. After being on a four-game unbeaten run, LA is now on a winless run for the same amount of games. This past Saturday Galaxy II fell on the road to Orlando City, who continues leading USLPRO. On Friday, Galaxy II will have a chance to get back to winning ways, when they host Arizona United at StubHub Center as part of a doubleheader featuring the first team hosting Portland following this match.

LA Galaxy:
After another disappointing elimination in USOC play, the Galaxy resumed MLS play this past Saturday with a victory over San Jose. The Galaxy quickly turned the page and forgot about the loss in extra time against Carolina, and shifted all their focus to defeating the team from up North. The Galaxy, on a five game unbeaten run in MLS play, has had its schedule all over the place and with many interruptions, but this Friday they’ll begin a three-game home stand starting with the Portland Timbers.
