LA Galaxy Dog Xolos in Carson Preseason Friendly

Galaxy 6 Club Tijuana 2

Good to know a Mexican champion B team can’t beat a preseason MLS champion side.

The Tuesday night game was notable for filthy weather, two red cards (in an exhibition, no less), assured performances by two-goal Bryan Gaul and (to a lesser extent) Leonardo as well as an assertive Robbie Keane opener. And a spirited crowd in frankly crappy weather.

Next up for the Galaxy: Friday in Santa Barbara against the Colorado Rapids.

LA Galaxy: Brian Perk (Brian Rowe 64’); A.J. DeLaGarza (Oscar Sorto 61’), Omar Gonzalez (Kofi Opare 64’), Leonardo (Mathaus Ferreira 46’), Bryan Gaul; Sean Franklin (Hector Jimenez 46’), Marcelo Sarvas (Rafael Garcia 46’), Juninho (Michael Stephens 46’), Colin Clark (Greg Cochrane 46’); Mike Magee (Jack McBean 46’), Robbie Keane(C) (Charlie Rugg 61’).

Subs Not Used: Todd Dunivant.

Club Tijuana: Miguel Garcia; Luis A. Garcia, Juan P. Santiago (Luis Trujillo 71’), Miguel Almazan, Greg Garza (Edgar Villegas 46’); Oliver Ortiz, Antonio Madueña (Esteban Rodriguez 68’), Alejandro Guido (Manuel Herrera 46’); Bruno Piceno, Raul Nava, Alfredo Moreno(C) (Luis Garcia Carmona 46’).
