“We have nobody to blame but ourselves, but I thought the referee made a bad call at the end,” Galaxy coach Bruce Arena said. “It was ridiculous, the way he called the game. That is just part of it though and we have to accept responsibility too.
“The ref was inconsistent and you cannot let the goalkeeper get charged at the end,” he added. “Having said that, we still should have gotten a point today. Losing that game was ridiculous.”

Up and coming Galaxy goalkeeper Brian Perk, 25, will miss the remainder of the season after fracturing his left ankle March 14 while playing in a scrimmage for the LA Galaxy II against his alma mata, UCLA.
He went under the knife Tuesday in an operation the club called successful.
Perk made two starts for the Galaxy last year and made another five starts for Los Dos.
Alta Loma native Trey Mitchell was signed Friday to add depth to the roster, coach Bruce Arena said.

After redshirting in 2012, he played the following two seasons for CSUDH, making 20 starts and recording 71 saves for a .85 goals against average, the fourth best in school history.
