LAFC 3-0 San Jose Earthquakes at half-time. Carlos Vela with two goals to take him up to 26 for the season. His second was memorable, evading four opposition players and nonchalantly stroking the ball in. Earthquakes coach Matias Almeyda was sent off five minutes before half-time for arguing with the officials. It's going to take a minor miracle for the Earthquakes to get back into this one, even if they did have a strong penalty shout and a couple of chances.
