MLS: Los Angeles 1, New England 0
Alecko Eskandarian scored in his first game with Los Angeles Saturday in the Galaxy's 1-0 win over New England.
The Galaxy (4-3-9) acquired Eskandarian Wednesday from Chivas USA. The win was LA's third in its last five matches.
Eskandarian scored eight minutes into the game off a feed from Todd Dunivant from the left wing into the middle of the box.
Eskandarian broke away from a defender and kicked the ball inside the left post of the goal with his right foot.
The lead could have grown to 2-0. In the 30th minute, Omar Gonzalez headed the ball but it went straight to goalkeeper Matt Reis.
