LAFCvsDAL_SCORE

LAFC won its seventh consecutive game in all competitions and kept a sixth straight clean sheet, defeating FC Dallas 1-0 on Saturday night in front of a sellout crowd of 22,000-plus at BMO Stadium. Denis Bouanga scored the game’s only goal in the 74th minute for his fourth goal in the last four games.

With the victory, the Black & Gold move into sole possession of second place in the Western Conference, and fourth place in the MLS Supporters' Shield standings, with a 9-4-3 record for 30 points. LAFC continues to be the best team at home in MLS this season, collecting 23 of a possible 27 points with a 7-0-2 record at BMO Stadium.

LAFC has now recorded six consecutive shutouts in all competitions and five straight in MLS play, extending its club-record shutout streak to 480 minutes in MLS play and 575 minutes in all competitions.

LAFC’s goal came in the 74th minute, when Mateusz Bogusz collected a pass near the center of the park and played a through ball into the path of Bouanga, who raced in behind the Dallas defense before slotting his shot home. Bouanga now has 10 goals in MLS this season, five of which are game-winners, leaving him one game-winning goal shy of equaling his career-high of six from last season.

LAFC and most of Major League Soccer will now take a two-week break while several players, including at least four LAFC players, compete for their countries internationally.
