Short on time today, so just have time to note that:
*The struggling Galaxy are in action tonight in Carson against the resurgent San Jose Earthquakes, who are just beginning a stretch of road games that could determine the direction of their season. The Galaxy also learned last night they will face the NASL’s Carolina RailHawks on the road Tuesday in the third round of the U.S. Open Cup. The winner hosts the victor of the Chivas USA-Ventura County Fusion contest June 5 in the fourth round.
*Chivas USA are in New York to face a Red Bull team seeking a sixth straight win in a 4 p.m. game (live on Galavision). The Red Bulls could see defender Wilman Conde return, despite his recent arrest for assaulting a police officer.
Chivas USA, which today announced a coaching and player development partnership with Long Beach-based Beach FC, will see defender Ante Jazic (Canada) and midfielder Oswaldo Minda (Ecuador) leave for their respective national teams after the game.
The Goats will play the PDL Ventura County Fusion next Tuesday at Ventura College in the U.S. Open Cup. they learned last night.
The Fusion are one of two amateur teams from Ventura County left in the knockout competition.
