In the first California Clasico of the season, the Los Angeles Galaxy hosted the San Jose

Earthquakes and emerged victorious with a score of 2-1. The Galaxy snapped their two-

game losing streak and improved their record to 2-6-3 with 9 points. The Earthquakes, on the

other hand, fell to 5-4-3 with 18 points and continued their poor away form with an 0-4-2 record.

The game started with San Jose dominating possession and spending time in the attacking third.

However, the Galaxy goalkeeper, Jonathan Bond, denied Jeremy Ebobisse in the sixth minute,

and this seemed to energize the home team. Los Angeles had their first chance in the seventh minute when Chicharito's kick rolled wide.

Chicharito continued to threaten the San Jose goal, but he was unable to score in the first half. However, in the 60th minute,

Martin Caceres headed a corner kick into the net to give the Galaxy the lead. San Jose had a chance to equalize in the 68th minute,

but Bond made a crucial save. Dejan Joveljic increased the Galaxy's lead to 2-0 in stoppage time when he intercepted the

ball on the attacking side of midfield and scored on the far post. San Jose scored a consolation goal

in the fourth minute of stoppage time when Ousseni Bouda found the net from the goal area, but it was too little too late.

The Galaxy's victory was well-deserved as they created more chances and defended well throughout the game.

San Jose will have to improve their away form if they want to challenge for the playoffs this season.
