View from the Los Angeles Blues: August 17, 2013


Daryoush Yazdani’s Los Angeles Blues needed to finish strong to go into the USL Pro playoffs with maximum momentum. However, it seemed that the wheels would fall off against Jesse Myers’s Rochester Rhinos on Saturday at Titan Stadium on the campus of California State University, Fullerton in Fullerton, Calif.

Shay Spitz opened up the scoring in the 49th minute thanks to a delivery from George Davis IV. Rochester’s Tyler Rosenlund equalized in the 67th minute. The turning point came in the 84th minute, when Blake Brettschneider was sent off.

When that happened, the Blues took advantage in stoppage time. Spitz delivered the game winner to Matt Fondy, who had also been catching fire this season. Fondy’s goal made it 2-1 to the good of the Blues, who finish the regular season with a record of 11-8-7 and 40 points.
