MLS Game Summary - New England at Los Angeles



(Wednesday, July 16, 2014)

From The Sports Network

Final Score: Los Angeles 5, New England 1

Carson, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Gyasi Zardes and Robbie Keane each scored a pair of goals on Wednesday as the Los Angeles Galaxy cruised to a comfortable 5-1 win over the struggling New England Revolution at the StubHub Center.

Keane opened the scoring for Los Angeles after just 10 minutes and Zardes followed by doubling the advantage eight minutes later. New England pulled one back in the 38th minute to get back in the match.

But Zardes completed his double just three minutes into the second half to go with a goal from Stefan Ishizaki in the 75th minute and a second tally from Keane three minutes later to wrap up the points for Los Angeles, which extended its unbeaten streak in league play to eight matches and improved to 27 points on the campaign.

New England, meanwhile, is still searching for answers after dropping its sixth consecutive match. Despite the loss, the Revs remain in fourth place in the East with 23 points.

Keane opened the scoring after 10 minutes when he collected the ball on the left flank from Baggio Husidic, cut inside and ripped a strike into the top right corner of the net, leaving New England goalkeeper Bobby Shuttleworth with no chance for a save.

Zardes bagged his first of the match eight minutes later as he controlled a deft layoff in the box from Keane and blasted it past Shuttleworth.

Things swung in favor of New England in the 36th minute when LA defender Dan Gargan was shown a straight red card following a rash tackle from behind on Revs forward Teal Bunbury which also led to a penalty kick that was easily dispatched by Nguyen to make it 2-1 at the break.

Zardes restored the Galaxy's two-goal margin just three minutes into the second half when he tapped home a perfectly-played square pass from Keane to put the result away.

The Galaxy then added a fourth goal 15 minutes from time when Ishizaki stepped up to a free kick from 25 yards out. The strike took a deflection off the wall and beat Shuttleworth to the top left corner.

Keane then put a bow on the dominant performance by firing home his second goal of the match in the 78th minute.
