LA Galaxy II (9-2-8, 35 points) dropped the last match of a three game road stretch in a 0-2 loss to Orange County Blues FC (7-9-4, 25 points) on Saturday night. A double from the Blues' Trevin Caesar snapped Los Dos' four-game win streak and nine-game unbeaten streak. 

Both goals for Orange County came on each side of halftime and both came in similar way. In the first half, a through ball from the Blues' Christopher Santana in the 19th minute put Caesar in position to round LA Galaxy goalkeeper Dan Kennedy and slot home the game's first goal. In the second half, Caesar raced through on another through ball and finished with a low and powerful strike.

Saturday's match was only the third time that Los Dos have been shutout this season. They now sit second in the Western Conference with 35 points, one point behind Vancouver Whitecaps FC's 36.

Next, Los Dos are back home when they take on Portland Timbers 2 on Saturday, August 6 at 7:30 p.m. For a full LA Galaxy II schedule, visit www.lagalaxy.com/schedule
