El Trafico's first-ever Open Cup edition emphatically went the LA Galaxy's way, as the hosts compiled three second-half goals en route to a 3-1 victory over LAFC at Dignity Health Sports Park.

Kevin Cabral opened the scoring for LA on 51 minutes, then Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez added the second with a first-time finish on Samuel Grandsir's cross six minutes later.

Dejan Joveljić added what turned out to be an important third goal in the 81st minute, as LAFC’s Ryan Hollingshead found the net in the 85th minute for what was ultimately a consolation strike.
