The Scouting Report
Who says procrastination doesn't pay off? In a June 15 matchup against the LA Galaxy Reserves, Blues forward Chris Cortez tied the score in the 90th minute—extending the Blues' then-undefeated home streak with a strong last-ditch effort. Such reliability from Cortez has been one of the Blues' biggest assets this season, as the forward leads the team with six goals in more than 41 shots, an endless barrage that frustrates opposing goalies trying to settle down for their naps. With the season approaching its final month, Cortez and the Blues need to remain hot at home to stay in contention, particularly during a showdown with the formidable Richmond Kickers.
Los Angeles Blues
Though the Los Angeles Blues are firmly attached to California, they celebrated their inaugural season like any newlyweds would: they headed to the Caribbean. In the team's first official weekend of play, it earned back-to-back wins over Sevilla Puerto Rico and Antigua Barracuda on their home turfs. Winning became a theme for the Blues that season, as they surged to the playoffs in the nascent USL Pro League. Since those early triumphs, the Blues have expanded beyond play in the USL Pro, taking on teams from other leagues during the annual U.S. Open Cup, participating in international exhibitions, and constantly fending off squirrels trying to steal the game balls for their acorn hoards.
