Ending the Week on a High Note

Dave Sarachan led the Galaxy through their final training session of the week this afternoon at The Home Depot Center. With Bruce is Las Vegas for the day presenting at the Soccer Champions Coaching Clinic, Dave led the squad through a quick warmup and then a series of drills before concluding the 75-minute session with a number of fast-paced, small-sided games.Those games were played in five, three minute intervals with the team of Gregg, Omar, Alex Cazumba, Sean, Dema, Ian Sarachan, Tristan and Juninho coming out on top thanks to a Sean Franklin Golden Goal in the tie-breaking sixth contest.
At the end of the session, most of the guys did some fitness followed by stretching, while the ever-competitve Dema teamed up with his Wednesday's game-winner Chris Birchall to take on the team of Todd, who missed the start of the week and Wednesday's game while attending the MLS/MLS Players Union negotiations in Washington D.C., and Juninho in a quick game of horseshoes, which the latter went on to win.Additionally, with the sun shining bright above, Clint Mathis and Alan Gordon each made their way outside to complete their rehab work with the training staff while the rest of the squad trained. Both players continue to make progress and are expected to be ready for the season opener, which is now just more than two weeks away.

Finally, be sure to check back here later today to discover the identities of the two players that were selected from last weekend's Open Tryout at The Home Depot Center.
