Galaxy 1 Puerto Rico Islanders 4
The Islanders may be called “the Grave Diggers,” but the Galaxy largely dug their own grave in this one.
I don’t mean to take anything away from the second division club team who played a fine game and scored some excellent goals, but the Galaxy’s deficiencies throughout the team tonight were readily apparent.
This is the first time the Galaxy has conceded four goals since the 6-3 home lashing by Dallas in September 2009.
How bad was it? In four MLS games in July the Galaxy allowed six goals representing 60 percent of their season total in goals conceded (as well as another pair in the U.S. Open Cup).
After tonight’s game the Galaxy has allowed a dozen goals this month alone after keeping nine clean sheets in their first 11 games of the season.
