Galaxy take first leg as Seattle lacked Alonso and Neagle | SBNation.com

It was a fairly slow first leg for the most part yesterday afternoon in LA. Seattle still looked like they did against FC Dallas were they sat back in large patches of the game. LA was the better team and got the early advantage because of it.
