The LA Galaxy and Vancouver Whitecaps FC cancelled their original Saturday night preseason friendly due to recent inclement weather, but the teams came together anyway and played a closed-door friendly Saturday evening, drawing 0-0 at Dignity Health Sports Park.
Both sides, under new head coaches this season, used lineups that mixed likely starters with reserves, and key figures were rested for both teams on the night.
