SAN JOSE, Costa Rica -- The LA Galaxy needed just a point on the road against Cartaginés to qualify for the CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinals, but an explosive offensive display in the first half ensured all three.
Jack McBean, Chandler Hoffman and Laurent Courtois all scored in the opening 30 minutes as LA dominated the Costa Rican side en route to a 3-0 victory. McBean’s finish allowed him to tie Robbie Keane for the most goals by an LA player in the CCL while Hoffman’s goal was the first of his professional career.
LA wrap up the CONCACAF Champions League group stage on Oct. 24 when they take on Isidro Metapán in El Salvador. The match will determine where LA are seeded in the CCL quarterfinal stage.
