Saturday October 8 | Dignity Health Sports Park, Carson, CA | 10:30 p.m. ET
ATL UTD 2 (5-22-5, 20 points) v LA Galaxy II (11-14-7, 40 points)
ATL UTD 2 fell 1-0 to Indy Eleven in their final game of the season at Fifth Third Bank Stadium on September 28.
Atlanta United Academy goalkeeper Nash Skoglund got his first professional start against Indy Eleven.
At 16, Skoglund became the youngest goalkeeper to start a game in club history and the fifth-youngest in the USL Championship since Opta began covering the league in 2011.
The young shot-stopper made six saves on his debut and even won the ball on a sliding challenge to deny a clear scoring chance in the 82nd minute.
THE GALAXY II IN 2022
Despite currently sitting in 10th place in the USL Championship Western Conference, Galaxy II is still in the hunt for the playoffs.
The team is just three points below the playoff line and won its last game against US Open Cup runners-up Sacramento Republic Lamar Hunt.
Galaxy II was scheduled to face New Mexico United on Wednesday night, but that match was scrapped due to bad weather.
