Seattle Sounders 2 Galaxy 0

“To me these games don’t make sense,” said Galaxy Coach Bruce Arena. “Essentially it was a reserve game tonight. I think the timing of this competition isn’t right for MLS teams; it’s a difficult time to try and play these games. … The competition is watered down due to the fact that each team is juggling players.”
