Homegrown player Jose Villarreal has scored three goals in four games to help the Los Angeles Galaxy Reserves to second place in the MLS Reserve League Western Conference table, with 4 wins, 3 losses, and 1 draw. They trail San Jose by a point. Since his debut for the Galaxy’s first team, Villarreal scored a goal against the Puerto Rico Islanders in the CONCACAF Champions League and another against the Vancouver Whitecaps after coming off the bench in regular season play.
Jack McBean, who boasts two goals of his own in the Reserve League, is further proof that the LA Galaxy’s youth program is producing fine homegrown talent.
Before his loan to Vålerenga, Chad Barrett scored three goals. Garcia, Sarvas, and Leonardo have one apiece. The Reserve League has been instrumental in boosting the young players’ skill, confidence, and experience, and assisting injured players, such as Omar Gonzales, regain their fitness and readiness to return to the first team.
There are two matches remaining for the Galaxy Reserves this season. Both are at the Home Depot Center on University Field #1. Parking and Admission are free.
v. Portland Timbers (11am, Monday September 10)
v. Vancouver Whitecaps (11am Friday, October 12)
