LAFC Drops Close Match As Team Re-Tools

Black & Gold Return Home vs. Real Salt Lake

(East Los Angeles, CA) [From The Editor’s Desk]: The Black & Gold have struggled to regain their grand winning streak momentum of just several weeks ago and prior to the Summer Transfer window transactions that basically shook the team alignments up a bit. However, due to their long ride atop the MLS Western Conference standings, they’ll now need to regroup while reconfiguring their game plans for the  next upcoming matches. If that does not happen, the pack behind them could be nipping at their heels to conclude the regular season.

After going through a tremendous (7) match winning streak that skyrocketed them to the top of the Western Conference standings, the team has now dropped three in a row and will be looking forward to retuning home on Sunday, 9/4 to a full house at Banc of California Stadium and play themselves back on the winning track.
