"Here we go Galaxy, here we go ....", the now infamous line from the movie "I Love You, Man" stood pat Saturday night as the Galaxy were able to stop the hot streak that is the Philadelphia Union.
The Union started the season 2-0 when the headed into L.A. to face the Galaxy.
The Union's offense hasn't been alive at all in their three games (they won 1-0 in the first two games of the year) and it stayed that way against the Galaxy.
The Union failed to have a shot on goal even after having a man advantage when the Galaxy's Chris Birchall was given a red card. The Galaxy took advantage over the lack of offense by the Union by taking and keeping a 1-0 lead. The Galaxy then slowed the game down and took complete control in their 1-0 victory over the Union.
“We didn’t play well in the first half,” said Ruiz, who suffered a slight right shoulder strain in the final minutes of the match. “In the second half we obviously played better because they played with 10 men but we didn’t find the space to try and score. I think we played too many long balls and that was easy for them because everybody was defending.”
“We lost but we are going to keep going forward,” said Ruiz.
