CARSON, Calif. (Saturday, June 6, 2015) – LA Galaxy II (6-4-1, 19 points) defeated Orange County Blues FC 2-1 Saturday night on the road at Anteater Stadium behind goals from Raul Mendiola and Kainoa Bailey.
LA Galaxy Homegrown Player Raul Mendiola opened the scoring in the 28th minute when he finished a ball from inside the box to give Los Dos a 1-0 lead. Galaxy Academy product Adonis Amaya crossed in a ball from the right side that split the Orange County defense and found Mendiola, who fired a one-touch shot with his right foot. It was the third goal of the season for Mendiola.
The score remained 1-0 going into halftime, with Orange County finding the equalizer shortly after the beginning of the second period. Blues forward Chris Cortez got on the end of a cross into the box to put a header past Los Dos goalkeeper Clement Diop and tie the game at 1-1.
With less than 20 minutes left in the match, Kainoa Bailey put Los Dos ahead 2-1. Bailey finished a pass at the top of the box after combination play from Jack McBean and Jaime Villarreal to score his first of the season as the Galaxy held on to record all three points on the night.
