About halfway through the season, with the playoffs looking like a likely destination for the Los Angeles Football Club, coach Bob Bradley held a team meeting in which he raised the bar for his players.

“We talked about 60 [points] as a goal,” Bradley said. Never mind it was a goal no MLS expansion team had ever met — and one just 12 teams in league in history had achieved. Yet after Saturday’s methodical 2-0 victory over the San Jose Earthquakes at Banc of California Stadium, it’s a goal that’s well within reach. The win extended LAFC’s unbeaten streak to six games, lifted it to second place in the Western Conference and left it with 50 points with five games remaining.
