The goal ended up equalizing 1-1 after near the end of the first half, at 45′, Brent Kallman put the locals ahead.

In the end Not even Vela’s goal could add the three points to LAFC that ended the clash with parity on the scoreboard; however, the result leaves them still leaders of the Western Conference with 61 points10 more than Austin FC but with one more game than the Texans.
