CARSON, Calif. – Jack McBean scored a pair of goals to lead the LA Galaxy II to a 4-2 preseason victory against Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC on Saturday afternoon at StubHub Center.
The Galaxy II struck three times in the first half to take control of the game, as new addition Denzel Slager and returning players Lee Nishanian and McBean found the back of the net. The Switchbacks also struck through Saeed Robinson off an assist by Martin Maybin, but found themselves down at the break.
McBean, who has recorded 11 goals and 11 assists over the past two USL seasons, added his second after the break for the Galaxy II. Luke Vercollone answered for the Switchbacks, but Colorado Springs fell for the first time this preseason after taking a 0-0 draw with fellow USL side Orange County Blues FC on Thursday.
The Galaxy II will open the 2016 USL regular season as they host Arizona United SC next Saturday at StubHub Center. The Switchbacks, meanwhile, will visit OKC Energy FC at Taft Stadium, also next Saturday, to open their new campaign.
