LA Galaxy earns 2-0 win over CS Cartagines in CONCACAF Champions League play

August 21, 2013

After exiting last year's CONCACAF Champions League earlier than expected, the Galaxy opened the 2013-2014 competition at the StubHub Center on Tuesday night looking for an improved performance versus CS Cartagines of Costa Rica.

Each team created chances throughout the game, but only one man could capitalize, and that was Robbie Keane, as usual.

In the 66th minute, Landon Donovan passed the ball over the defense to Keane, who shot on goal.  CS Cartagines goalkeeper Wardy Alfaro was able to get his hands on the ball, but could not keep it out of the net, allowing LA to take a 1-0 lead.

In stoppage time, Keane scored from another Donovan assist, as Donovan again played the ball over the defense to Keane, who waited for Alfaro to commit and then slotted the ball into the corner to give the Galaxy a 2-0 win.

The Galaxy's next CCL match is on September 8th when they go up against Isidro Metapan of El Salvador.
