LAFC vs San Jose Earthquakes – June 22, 2024

In a magnificent outing that pushed the Black and Gold up to first place in the Western Conference, the 6-2 LAFC vs San Jose Earthquakes victory that took place at BMO Stadium on Saturday night extended the club’s winning streak to 10 games across all competitions. LAFC also tied their club record for most goals in a game.

We’ve got a whole lot of ground to cover here, so let’s start with the first goal of the game. It was none other than Mateusz Bogusz with a tremendous diving header to put LAFC up on the board with a 1-0 lead at the 15 minute mark. As part of the pattern we’ve seen across the past weeks, Denis Bouanga also tallied one up for the Black and Gold as he doubled the lead ten minutes later with a swift left-footed strike past San Jose goalkeeper Jacob Jackson.

There was more to be found in the first half in the LAFC vs San Jose Earthquakes highlight reel as Bogusz found Kei Kamara for the third goal of the game. Kamara, now with his 146th goal of his MLS career, moves into second place in the all-time MLS scoring list.

Ryan Hollingshead added to the bill in the 42nd minute with a deflected shot that luckily went into the back of the net, crediting him with his first goal of the season. Quakes’ Rodrigues found a way to put his team up on the board during the first half stoppage time with a shot at the far post, past LAFC goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

Both clubs added a goal each after the break, the first starting with Bogusz who secured a beautiful brace after Bouanga found him driving in on a beautiful left-footed cross from the corner of the penalty area. The Quakes made an almost mirror play shortly after when Hernan Lopez found Benjamin Kikanović for a pretty amazing header. We have to give them kudos for that one at least.

Tomás Ángel subbed into the game and found himself on the scoresheet in the 87’, making it his very first league goal as well as helping the club tie its record for goals in a match. With a 6-2 lead, that was all she wrote in the dominant performance from the Black and Gold.

LAFC will look to keep the momentum going next week at home at BMO Stadium against the Colorado Rapids on Saturday, June 29. LAFC still have not yet lost at home across this season with a record of 8-0-2.
