The Los Angeles Galaxy were mired in a miserable slump and desperately needed to break out of the rut that had seen them post just one win in five matches.
With the help of Robbie Keane’s penalties and a defense that allowed just one goal in 180 minutes, the Galaxy re-asserted their place in the heart of the race for the top spot in the Western Conference. Their two victories last week moved them to within four points of first-place Real Salt Lake, and made the Galaxy the SBI MLS Team of the Week.
The Galaxy beat out the Vancouver Whitecaps for this week’s honor.
What did you think of the Galaxy’s performance last week. See them catching Real Salt Lake atop the West, or still think they have issues to sort out?
