Carson, CA (Sports Network) - Chivas USA earned its first win of the season
on the strength of three second-half goals on Sunday in a 3-1 defeat of FC
Dallas at the Home Depot Center.
The Goats suffered a 3-0 defeat at home last week to the Columbus Crew, but
rebounded nicely to give new head coach Chelis his first victory.
After a scoreless first half in which chances were hard to come by for both
sides, FC Dallas got off the mark first in the 57th minute when David Ferreira
controlled a ball on the left flank, cut to the inside and slid the ball
through the legs of Chivas goalkeeper Dan Kennedy to make it 1-0.
Chivas found the equalizer in the 68th minute as Juan Agudelo collected a pass
from Walter Vilchez. in the box before using some fancy footwork to beat his
defender and slot it home.
Oswaldo Minda gave the Goats the lead with 14 minutes to play with a quick
shot into the bottom right corner of the net and Giovani Casillas finished it
off in stoppage time to secure the result.
FC Dallas will host the Houston Dynamo next week, while Chivas USA will battle
the Los Angeles Galaxy in the Super Classico.
