CARSON, Calif. -- Before the LA Galaxy’s four-game road trip, they were a team considered by many across the league to be in the depths of an early season slide.  After their road trip, Curt Onalfo’s Galaxy squad can only be described as one of the hottest teams in Major League Soccer.


Onalfo’s Galaxy squad went 3-0-1 during their recent four-game road trip taking 10 points out of a possible 12 from their journey which saw the team log more than 12,000 miles as they crisscrossed the United States.


Galaxy goalkeeper Jon Kempin admitted after their scoreless draw with D.C. United that the road trip was truly the "start of something special." 


“Well, I think it’s huge. 10 points out of 12 is amazing. We gave it our all in four games,” Giovani dos Santos, who played a large role in the resurgence with five goals in his last five matches, said. “In D.C. we fell short because of the traveling and the work we did. We’re happy with the way the team is building things. We just need to continue to work in the same way.”

Following a tumultuous start to the season, the Galaxy feel that the ship has been righted.


"We started to click. We started to come together as a group. Part of that is just timing of the four-game road trip," Onalfo said. "If we were at home, it could have been even better, but we weren't. We dealt with a lot of adversity early on, and it has made us better. These are things that we'll put in our repertoire as we move forward."
