Husidic set up on the left side of the 18-yard box and then fired his shot inside the top right post and past diving goalkeeper Steve Clark in the 78th minute. Four minute later, the ball deflected to dos Santos in the midfield, who then ran alongside a defender and lofted his shot over Clark to score his tenth goal of the season.

Adam Jahn scored in the second minute of second-half stoppage time for the Crew. Galaxy goalkeeper Brian Rowe stopped Ola Kamara’s penalty kick to the bottom left corner of the goal less than a minute later.
