LAFC stormed to a 4-0 win over the visiting New England Revolution on Sunday, paced mainly by Dénis Bouanga’s incredible stretch. The Gabon international forward posted two goals and one assist, building off his midweek hat-trick at Costa Rican side Alajuelense in the Concacaf Champions League Round of 16. Slight squad rotation ensured midfielder Timothy Tillman grabbed his first MLS start, and the offseason arrival nabbed a late goal while showing his Bundesliga-heavy background during a head-turning two-way performance.
