Ola Kamara and Romain Alessandrini were the goalscorers in a strong first half for the LA Galaxy who opened the season with a win over the Portland Timbers.
Newcomer Ola Kamara and Romain Alessandrini scored two minutes apart in the first half as the LA Galaxy held off Portland 2-1 in a season opener Sunday night to spoil coach Giovanni Savarese's Timbers debut.
Kamara's 35th career goal came in the 32nd minute. Jonathan dos Santos' cross was headed across goal by Rolf Feltscher and Kamara chested it home. On a counter-attack two minutes later, Alessandrini capitalized on a defensive turnover by sending a shot off the post and finishing the rebound.
