Pavón, Lletget lead Galaxy to 3-2 win over Earthquakes
CARSON, Calif. (AP) Sebastian Lletget and Cristian Pavon scored in the second half and the LA Galaxy rallied to beat San Jose 3-2 on Saturday night, with 16-year-old Cade Cowell scoring his first goal for the Earthquakes.
Cowell, the youngest player in franchise history to start a game and score, broke through in the 59th minute. On the left side, Cowell cut back to evade a defender before ripping a right-footer inside the far post.
Lletget redirected a corner kick that deflected off a San Jose defender to give the Galaxy (2-3-2) a 3-2 lead in the 82nd minute.
Valeri Qazaishvili opened the scoring for the Earthquakes (2-2-2) in the 11th, and Daniel Steres headed home a long entry pass by Lletget on a set piece in the 33rd minute to tie it.
