LAFC vs FC Cincinnati Highlights
Carlos Vela and LAFC cannot be stopped. FC Cincinnati found that out the hard way on Saturday night.
As has been the key to their success so far this season, LAFC gave themselves an early lead in the 32nd minute, capitalizing on a corner kick opportunity that they so often let go to waste. Carlos Vela swung a vicious ball into the head of an unmarked Mark-Anthony Kaye, who neatly redirected the ball into the far corner despite moving away from goal.
FC Cincinnati thought they’d found an equalizer just before the half after Darren Mattocks seized upon some sloppy defending by LAFC. Heroic goalkeeping by Tyler Miller pushed the curling attempt wide to preserve the lead.
Deep into stoppage time, the Captain dragged his team over the finish line with a tidy right foot finish to continue both his scoring streak and LAFC’s unbeaten streak.
In four short days, LAFC head to Vancouver to try to take down the Whitecaps.
