[DEVELOPMENT ACADEMY SPOTLIGHT] The star-studded Los Angeles Galaxy's U-17/18 academy team clinched an automatic berth in the Development Academy playoffs when it beat Arsenal FC, 5-1, on Saturday.

UC Santa Barbara-bound Drew Murphy led the Galaxy, who also got goals from former U.S. U-17 Mario Rodriguez, Jaime Villarreal and Oscar Sorto.

Goalie Juan Cervantes and defenders Javan Torre and Sorto had started on Pateadores, last year's U-17/18 national championship team, before joining the Galaxy.

Fresno product Nathan Smith was in the U.S. U-17 residency program with Rodriguez.

The Galaxy is one point ahead of Chivas USA with one game to play in the SoCal Division. RSL AZ and Pateadores also have a shot at making the playoffs as wild-card teams.

The Galaxy is 11-3-1 in division play and 19-4-3 overall. Its 2.31 points per game is third in the country behind only the Chicago Fire and FC Dallas.
