Justin Dhillon in Fine Form for Los Dos After Performance vs. Rio Grande Valley FC Toros

Last Saturday, LA Galaxy II snapped a 3-game losing streak winning 1-0 away from home against Rio Grande Valley FC Toros.

While it was a good team performance, one player’s display was outstanding; Justin Dhillon.

Prior to the match, Dhillon has put together a string of solid performances, most notably vs. Colorado Springs Switchbacks. The forward was always a willing runner and along with his strike partner Ethan Zubak, they were putting pressure on the Switchbacks’ defense.

In as early as the 24th minute, the pair linked up for a chance as Zubak played a cross to the 22-year-old and missed an opportunity to go 1-0 up early on. Despite the miss, Dhillon was relentless in his pressing and tried to hit on the counter as much as possible.

In the second half, he got his reward in the game as he found himself with space on the outside of the 18-yard box on the left side of the pitch and beat Switchbacks Keeper Moise Pouaty near post with a world class finish.

While Los Dos lost at the death 2-1, Dhillon should not be disappointed at the shift he put in for the side.

Against Rio Grande Valley, it was much of the same. While Zubak wasn’t his strike partner, he played alongside another forward in Adonis Amaya and the two were as lively as ever against the home side.

Like against the Switchbacks, Dhillon found the ball at his feet after the Rio Grande Valley backline misplaced the ball. The forward put in 16-year old Jonah Estrada and put the ball in the net for the away side. Los Dos would go on to win 1-0.

After the performance, Dhillon should become a mainstay in the starting line-up for the next few matches. The forward has scored three goals and assisted once in the last 6 games for the USL side. He will look to continue his good run of form against Sacramento Republic FC this Sunday, June 25.
