Energy FC forward José Angulo recorded a hat-trick in the match, starting things off with a penalty kick late in the first half that gave his side the 1-0 lead at halftime.

Angulo’s second half was worse news for the Galaxy, as he found wide-open space in the middle of the penalty box for goals in back-to-back minutes (67’ and 68’) to earn his hat-trick. The Galaxy were shutout for the third straight match.

Five current LA Galaxy Academy members participated in the match: Jake Arteaga, Leonardo Sepulveda, Alex Mendez, Jorge Hernandez and Jonathan Estrada. The starting lineup averaged an age of 19.27, one of the youngest of the season for Los Dos.
