Diomande scores twice, LAFC hands Dynamo 1st home loss

July 13, 2019

HOUSTON (AP) — Adama Diomande scored twice off assists from Lee Nguyen and Los Angeles FC handed the Houston Dynamo their first home loss of the season, 3-1 on Friday night.

Los Angeles (14-2-4) has won five of its last six games. Houston (8-8-3) has just one win in its last eight matches.

Diomande tied it at 1 in first-half stoppage time on a towering header of Nguyen’s cross to the far post. Nguyen drew the defense on a fake shot near the penalty spot and found Diomande open at the corner of the 6-yard box in the 49th.

Diego Rossi capped the scoring in the 88th on a breakaway for his 11th goal of the season.

Romell Quioto opened the scoring in the third minute with an individual effort to create space for a deflected shot past Tyler Miller.
