Galaxy beats Isidro Metapan 1-0

Laurent Courtois scored an early goal to give the Los Angeles

Galaxy a 1-0 victory over Isidro Metapan in group play in the

CONCACAF Champions League on Wednesday.

The Galaxy posted their second victory in the competition to

pull ahead of Costa Rica’s Cartagines atop Group 8. Los Angeles can

advance to next year’s quarterfinals with a draw or victory next

week at Cartagines.

El Salvador’s Metapan, which will host Los Angeles on Oct. 24,

was eliminated from contention.
