The LA Galaxy overcame FC Dallas on Wednesday evening at the HubStub Center in Carson, California. The final score for the match was a defeat of 2-1, and it was a Galaxy victory that was not seen in a while.

As reported by ESPN Deportes, the Galaxy took a victory and defeats Dallas with goals by Irish forward Robbie Keane and forward Gyasi Zardes. Both goals by the Angeleno team were score in the first half of the game.

The first goal by Keane was the best goal of the game as the Irish forward worked his way through a couple of Dallas defenders and took a majestic shot from the top of the box. Keane sent the ball to the right side of goalkeeper Raul Fernandez, who dove for the ball.

The second goal came from a center as Gyasi headed the ball into the net. The ball sailed into the center, making it difficult for Fernandez to come out. Gyasi followed through and got his head working to make the goal and defeat the defenders as well. The center kick was made by Brazilian midfielder Juninho.

The LA Galaxy held on to the lead until the 65th minute of the match when forward Teko Akindele from FC Dallas scored a goal. It was still early in the game, as Dallas could have tied the game, but the team from Texas did not have enough.

The Galaxy had not won a game in four games. The defeat over FC Dallas at home was a good sign for an Angeleno team who played without two of their main starters, Landon Donovan and defender Omar Gonzalez, who are currently with the USMNT camp preping for the World Cup in Brazil.

The next game for the LA Galaxy will be on May 25, against the Philadelphia Union. The Sunday game will be another home match for the Angelenos and will be playing without Donovan and Gonzalez as well.
