View from the Los Angeles Blues: July 25, 2013

Daryoush Yazdani’s Los Angeles Blues, after going on a five-game win streak in July, have hit a snag. After dropping a 2-1 defeat to the Richmond Kickers, the hope for the Blues was that they would bounce back big against Mark Steffens’ Charlotte Eagles.

And it seemed to be that way for the majority of the match. However, Drew Yates’s goal in stoppage time consigned the Blues to a 3-3 draw before a crown of 553 at the Queens Sports Complex in Charlotte, N.C. on Wednesday. Shay Spitz opened the scored in the 21st minute, Chris Cortez made it 2-1 in the 34th minute and an own goal in the 41st made it 3-1 to the good of the Blues before the Eagles rallied.
