Denis Bouanga scores two goals to help LAFC beat St. Louis 2-0

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Denis Bouanga scored two goals and Hugo Lloris made seven saves for his third clean sheet of the season to help LAFC beat St. Louis 2-0 on Wednesday night.

Bouanga joined Carlos Vela as the only players in club history to score at least 10 game-winning goals.

Bouanga ran past the defense to get to a nice, lofted pass from Mateusz Bogusz and took one touch before smashing a shot inside the near post in the 59th minute.

Bouanga added another in second-half stoppage time. St. Louis misplayed a clearance in the LAFC end and Bouanga raced the length of the field on a breakaway to chip it over goalkeeper Roman Bürki.

LAFC (6-4-3) improved to 2-4-1 away from BMO Stadium across all competitions this year.

St. Louis (3-2-7) lost for the first time since March 30, ending a five-game undefeated streak.

Bouanga also highlighted LAFC’s dominate 3-0 win over Vancouver on Saturday with three assists.
