LAFC gets first home win in MLS
It was a dramatic start for LAFC in their new stadium with a late win at the last second of the game that sent the Banc of California stadium into a frenzy.
Laurent Ciman was the hero and will enter the records book being the first even player to score at the newly stadium in downtown Los Angeles. LAFC did not display their best performance but came out with a big win.
They won 5 out of their first MLS games this season and comfortably seat at the second place in the Western conference standings behind the leaders Sporting Kansas.
Coach Bob Bradley on the win:
“What a stadium, what a crowd.I’ve been lucky enough to be in a lot of amazing places around the world, but the feeling inside that stadium today was incredible.
You get in all kinds of games, but it’s nice to not have to inaugurate this incredible new stadium and those fans with a 0-0, so maybe somebody was looking down on us.
It felt like it was going to be that 0-0 game, and everybody came here for something special, so it was unfortunate in the 90th minute that it was 0-0 and that we hadn’t been able to get a goal. Laurent changed all that, and it was the fairytale ending that LA deserved.
Nothing like a perfect ending for the City of Angels.”
