Bogusz scores a goal, Lloris has third consecutive shutout; LAFC beats Atlanta 1-0

ATLANTA (AP) — Mateusz Bogusz scored on a free kick and Hugo Lloris had his third consecutive shutout to help Los Angeles FC beat Atlanta United 1-0 on Saturday night.

LAFC (7-4-3) has won three consecutive games and four of its last five.

Goalkeeper Brad Guzan was shown a red card (denial of an obvious goal-scoring opportunity) in the 60th minute, was replaced by Josh Cohen and Atlanta played a man down until Eduard Atuesta, who was shown a yellow card in the 10th minute, was shown a red in the 81st.

Bogusz capitalized moments later when he fired a free kick from just outside the area inside the post and under the crossbar to beat the 31-year-old Cohen, making his first MLS appearance, and give LAFC a 1-0 in the 63rd.

Atlanta had 54% possession and outshot LAFC 15-14.

Atlanta (3-7-4) is winless in nine straight since a 3-0 win over the Chicago Fire on March 31.
