Quakes v Galaxy

The Quakes draw 2-2 against the Galaxy.

With a depleted roster due to international team duty (Cade Cowell to name for the Quakes) and injuries (Chicharito with a knee injury ending his 2023 season) it was the second unit that played a role in the game.  Raheem Edwards opened up the scoring for the visitors at the 31st minute, but Jack Skahan in a rare start draw the game even for the home team 11 minutes later.  Preston Judd opened up the second half scoring for LA in the 48th minute to give the team the lead.  Quakes All-Star Cristian Espinoza salvaged the team with a draw in the 81st minute with his equalizing goal.
