Larin’s late goal helps Orlando City beat Galaxy 2-1
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Cyle Larin scored in stoppage time, Will Johnson had a goal and an assist and Orlando City beat the Los Angeles Galaxy 2-1 on Saturday to remain unbeaten at home this season.
Larin scored on a sliding volley off Johnson’s corner kick in the 91st minute for his fourth goal of the season.
Johnson opened the scoring in the ninth minute, chest-trapping — off one bounce — a long, arcing pass from Scott Sutter near the top-left corner of the box before blasting a right-footer into the far corner of the net.
Romain Alessandrini, a 28-year-old designated player acquired by Los Angeles (2-4-0) on Jan. 31, tied it in the 83rd with his fourth goal in three games. Alessandrini took a pass from Jermaine Jones and, just outside the top of the box, cut back to evade two defenders and fired in a low, right-footed finish off the post.
Joe Bendik had five saves for Orlando City (4-1-0), which allowed an MLS-high 60 goals in 2016 but has just four goals against this season.
