LA Galaxy II blanked by Republic FC, 0-3

Jeff Gross

LA Galaxy II's unbeaten run in USL PRO was stopped on Sunday by Sacramento Republic FC when the visitors picked up a 3-0 win. Republic FC was also responsible for the only draw against the record of Los Dos so far this season in what could be a budding rivalry.

LA Galaxy II are unbeaten no more after a 0-3 defeat at the hands of Sacramento Republic FC on Sunday at the StubHub Center's Track and Field Stadium.

Republic FC got on the board first in the 33rd minute off of a corner kick. Max Alvarez' corner kick swung to the top of the area on the far post side and Rafael Garcia was unable to clear it with a header for Los Dos. Thomas Stewart then played a header to the center of the area off the deflection where Mickey Daly hit a backheel over his head that looped over Brian Rowe in the Galaxy II net.

Alvarez terrorized the Galaxy II defense on his own later in the 45th minute when he streaked past the last three defenders and then chipped Rowe who had charged off his line past the penalty spot. In the 75th minute, Republic FC added to the lead after Daniel Steres' clearance didn't make it out of the box after a deflection. Garcia was unable to play the ball after the deflection, struggling with the man he was marking and when he fell down, the ball was left on a platter for Dakota Collins who buried the loose ball.

Here are all the goals, if you dare:


Other Notes:

Oft-injured midfielder Robbie Rogers played his first minutes of the season in a rehab stint. Rogers went 39 minutes in the defeat, taking no shots and committing no fouls.

Galaxy II registered no shots in the match until the 70th minute and finished with three shots. Republic FC scored three goals on just four shots.

Galaxy II are back at it on Saturday, April 19 vs. the Orange County Blues (1-2-0) at the StubHub Center's Track and Field Stadium. Los Dos defeated the Blues 3-1 in the Galaxy II's home opener on March 22.
