LA Galaxy win Xbox Team Fair Play Award

By Adam Serrano

The LA Galaxy were awarded the Xbox MLS Team Fair Play award on Monday.

The award is selected by MLS based on objective criteria such fewest fouls committed and cards received as well as on the subjective evaluation of sportsmanlike behavior. The Galaxy defeated the Houston Dynamo and Vancouver Whitecaps FC for the award. 

LA committed just 386 in the 2013 MLS regular season which was the third fewest amount in the league. Meanwhile, LA earned just 36 yellow cards, the lowest total in MLS. LA was also awarded just a single red card in 2013 after receiving six in the past two years.
