Led by Landon Donovan, Gyassi Zardes and Robbie Keane, the LA Galaxy spent the month of September outmatching, outwitting and, most importantly, outscoring nearly everyone in their path.
The Galaxy, who have lost only once since July 20, stormed through September with a 4-2-0 record by overwhelming opponents with a +11 goal differential. The overall performance made the Galaxy an easy choice for SBI MLS Team of the Month.
After ending August with a thrashing of Chivas USA, the Galaxy opened September with a 6-0 rout of the Colorado Rapids. The Galaxy then picked up two draws, before taking out playoff contenders FC Dallas and the New York Red Bulls, 2-1 and 4-0, respectively.
With the attacking trio of Donovan, Zardes and Keane combining to score 11 of the team’s 15 September goals, the Galaxy are peaking at the right time as the regular season enters its final stretch.
The Galaxy beat out out the Columbus Crew, New England Revolution and New York Red Bulls for this month’s honors.
