Game #19: LA Galaxy II (USL) 1, Ventura County Fusion (PDL) 2
LA Galaxy II may have been the professional side playing at home, but it was Ventura County Fusion that found first blood when Matthew Lagrassa fired a shot from the top of the box over the head of LA ‘keeper Nicholas Shackelford in the 30th minute. The Galaxy applied pressure and would respond  just before halftime when Adonis Amaya was tripped up by Fusion goalkeeper Justin Vom Steeg, forcing the referee to point to the spot. Ariel Lassiter finished the spot kick to equalize before the break. After trading blows in the second half, the match looked like it would head to extra time, but the Fusion would find a stoppage time winner from Abu Danladi. The win means the Fusion return home to host fellow giant killers PSA Elite in Third Round play on May 27.
