WHAT HAPPENED? Inter Miami's Farias scored a wicked goal to open the scoring for Inter Miami against LAFC Sunday evening. The Argentine seemed to lose momentum but a sliding effort saw his boot strike the ball and it went past the goalkeeper, off the post and into the back of the net.

The ball found the back of the net in the 14th minute and was the first of three Herons' goals Sunday evening.
