New England scored two goals in the first 13 minutes, stunning the host LA Galaxy early en route to a 3-1 win at The Home Depot Center on Saturday night.
It was that quick flurry which set the tone, backing the defending MLS Cup and Supporters’ Shield champs into a corner they never quite got out of.
With the loss, the Galaxy are now 1-2-0 on the season for three points. The Galaxy remain in eighth place in the Western Conference standings.
All three of the Galaxy’s games this season have been at home. The two home losses are two more than they recorded all of last season.
LA Galaxy Head Coach Bruce Arena
On the team’s performance:
“We were certainly beat tonight from the opening kickoff. We were very poor and deserved to lose the game.”
