View from the Los Angeles Blues: July 10, 2013


Daryoush Yazdani’s Los Angeles Blues are finding their winning stroke once again. July opened up nicely for the team with a couple of victories over Antigua Barracuda and the Pittsburgh Riverhounds, and the Blues were hoping to build on their winning streak on Wednesday against Bill Becher’s Harrisburg City Islanders on Wednesday.

Matt Fondy’s brace in the 46th and 84th minutes were enough to give the Blues a 4-2 victory over the City Islanders at the Skyline Sports Complex in Harrisburg, Pa. George Davis IV (6′) and Gabriel Gonzalez (13′) opened up the scoring for the Blues.

Don Anding (19′) and Sainey Touray added consolation goals for the hosts, but it was not enough. Goalkeeper Mohammed Mohammedi was a workhorse in goal, making six saves to pace the Blues.

The Blues improve to 8-6-5 (29 points) and find themselves in fourth place in the USL Pro ladder. However, every results counts because teams like Orlando City and the Richmond Kickers have several games in hand.

Los Angeles continue their season on Jul. 13 against Antigua Barracuda FC at Titan Stadium on the campus of California State University, Fullerton in Fullerton, Calif. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. PT/10:30 p.m. ET.
