CD Chivas USA 2014 News and Updates
7/16/14 - Erick Torres strikes again. The forward has struck for goals in his last five games for C.D. Chivas USA, who defeated Vancouver 3-1 at B.C. Place last weekend to move into seventh place in the Western Conference, just a point behind the Los Angeles Galaxy and two points behind Whitecaps FC for the fifth slot on the ladder. Chivas USA and Vancouver traded goals initially, the Whitecaps scoring theirs in the 27th minute, but the Goats equalized shortly after the beginning of the second half with a headed goal by Agustin Pelletieri. After Vancouver had a man red-carded, Torres struck for his 13th goal of the season, and Leandro Barrera knocked home an insurance goal during second-half stoppage time. Chivas USA heads to the nation’s capital this weekend for a match with Eastern leaders D.C. United this weekend.
7/8/14 - Erick “Cubo” Torres had the highlight of the night as C.D. Chivas USA won their third straight contest, 1-0 over visiting Montreal. Torres’ lone score, his 12th on the season, was a spectacular bicycle-kick goal which came during second-half stoppage time to give the Goats a much-needed win. CUSA goalkeeper Dan Kennedy recorded his third consecutive clean sheet as part of the win; the Goats have not allowed a goal to be scored in 323 minutes of league play. MLSsoccer.com noted that among the sparse crowd for the match was U.S. goalkeeper Tim Howard, who just days before, wowed the world in a heart-rending World Cup loss to Belgium. The Goats take to the road for their next several matches, first heading north of the border to take on Vancouver this weekend.
7/1/14 - Erick Torres netted his 10th goal and the C.D. Chivas USA defense made it stand up as all they needed, as the Goats returned to league action this past weekend with a 1-0 victory over Real Salt Lake. Chivas USA also held a man advantage for over 80 minutes of the full 90 minute match, as a RSL player was shown a straight red card and ejected for a studs-up tackle on CUSA’s Martin Rivero, a play which happened directly in front of the match referee. The goal for Torres was his 17th in MLS play, giving him the new goal-scoring standard for Mexico-born players in the league, a record previously held by international standout Cuauhtemoc Blanco established during his stint with Chicago. The Goats travel to San Jose for their next league encounter; their next home game is just days later, this Sunday when Montreal comes to the StubHub Center.
6/19/14 - If the 2014 season for C.D. Chivas USA has not gone well for coach Wilmer Cabrera and his charges, this week’s U.S. Open Cup result, a defeat by second-division North American Soccer League side Carolina RailHawks FC on penalties, was no help. The Goats flew across country to suburban Cary, N.C. for the game; and the RailHawks struck first with a goal not quite half an hour into the match. Ryan Findley, starting in place of leading scorer Erick Torres, headed home the equalizer about 11 minutes later; after the intermission, another Findley shot found the crossbar. Neither team was able to convert any other opportunities through to the final 120th minute, sending the game to penalty kicks, which the RailHawks won 3-2 to advance to the next round of Open Cup play. The Goats are now off until June 28, when they host Real Salt Lake when MLS play resumes.
6/11/14 - In their last game before the start of the World Cup, C.D. Chivas USA held on by their fingertips for most of the SuperClasico match against the Los Angeles Galaxy, giving up an equalizer in the 35th minute for a 1-1 draw at the StubHub Center. The Goats had a strong start with several early opportunities, but it wasn’t until the 20th minute that Erick Torres collected his ninth goal of the season, as Leonardo slightly deflected a neat pass from Martin Rivero, which Torres put inside the left post. After that, though, it was defend, defend, defend, as the Galaxy enjoyed a clear advantage in possession, though Chivas USA did manage a couple of opportunities late in the second half. The Goats pick up next with U.S Open Cup play, heading to Cary, N.C. to take on the second-division Carolina RailHawks FC from the North American Soccer League; with their next MLS clash coming at the StubHub Center on June 28 against Real Salt Lake.
6/3/14 - Even though their opponents last weekend, the Philadelphia Union, are the younger team, C.D. Chivas USA have never been able to beat them – and that string continued, as Philadelphia shut out the Goats, 3-0 thanks to a brace (two goals) from the Union’s Conor Casey. The first of Casey’s goals came in the 28th minute as an indirect result of a delay of game, indirect free kick awarded to the Union, which led to a handball in the penalty area committed by the Red and White, and the resultant penalty kick. Casey would score in the 66th minute, and then another Chivas USA defensive misadventure led to a goal awarded to Philly’s Cristian Maidana in the 76th minute. The loss was CUSA’s fifth straight home loss of the season. The Goats are back on the StubHub Center pitch this weekend, the last before the beginning of the World Cup, but will be the away team to the Los Angeles Galaxy in the SuperClasico.
5/28/14 - C.D. Chivas USA hasn’t played since May 17th and a 1-1 draw at FC Dallas, and the Goats have fallen back to the bottom of the table in the intervening period, but hoped to pick up a key three points on May 28 at the StubHub Center in Carson, California against the visiting Portland Timbers. Forward Erick Torres, on a hot streak earlier in the season, has cooled off his goal-scoring and still stands at eight goals (tied with Seattle’s Clint Dempsey, now on U.S. national-team duty), while being passed by New York Red Bulls’ Bradley Wright-Phillips (younger brother of Shaun, of Manchester City and Queens Park Rangers fame) and Sporting Kansas City’s Dom Dwyer for the goal-scoring lead. After Portland, Chivas USA will remain home for a weekend date with Philadelphia Union.
5/20/14 - On the one hand, Erick Torres didn’t score last weekend for C.D. Chivas USA – just the third time this season the Goats’ leading scorer was kept off the scoreboard. On the other hand, Chivas USA moved out of last place in MLS’s Western Conference, earning a point with a 1-1 road draw against F.C. Dallas. The lone goal for the Goats was scored in the 60th minute by Marco Delgado, his first of the season; however, the defense was unable to keep the clean sheet, allowing Fabian Castillo to redirect a pass into the nets in the 83rd minute – the second goal that Castillo has scored against Chivas USA this season. Chivas USA’s next game is not this weekend, but on Wednesday, May 28, when they welcome Portland to town.
5/14/14 - A week after defeating the Los Angeles Galaxy, the Colorado Rapids faced the other L.A. based soccer squad, C.D. Chivas USA…and ended up with a whole different result. Chivas USA used a second-half brace from newly-acquired midfielder Marvin Chavez (traded to the Goats, ironically enough, by the Rapids), as well as another goal from Erick Torres also in the second half, to defeat the Rapids 3-1. Chavez came on in the 57th minute for Agustin Pelletieri, and just 10 minutes later, notched his first goal in the Goats’ red and white. (The celebration would earn Chavez a yellow card for excessiveness.) It would be just another nine minutes later when Chavez took advantage of a misplay by a Rapids defender to slot home his second goal. The Rojiblancos will travel to Frisco, Texas this weekend for their next match, against F.C. Dallas.
5/8/14 - Last weekend the Houston Dynamo paid a visit to the StubHub Center in Carson, Calif. to take on the Goats of C.D. Chivas USA; when the final whistle had sounded, the Dynamo had sent CUSA to their third straight loss and worst defeat of the young season, 4-1. Goats forward Erick Torres converted a penalty kick in the first half for his seventh goal of the season, one behind Seattle’s Clint Dempsey for the overall lead. Head coach Wilmer Cabrera has been putting a positive spin on what has turned into an eight game winless string, telling MLSsoccer.com, “The players know we’re improving and there have been good changes in mentality.” Coming up for Chivas USA is a weekend trip to Colorado to take on the Rapids, who are currently fourth in MLS’s Western Conference.
4/29/14 - It was a tough weekend for C.D. Chivas USA, who gave up a much needed three points in allowing conference rivals San Jose to gain their first win of the season, a 1-0 decision on the road at Buck Shaw Stadium. The Goats have collected just three points – from three draws, against Vancouver, New York Red Bulls, and the Portland Timbers – in the seven games they have played since winning their Opening Kick match in March against Chicago. To make things worse, Goats goalkeeper Dan Kennedy was red-carded late in the game for a handball outside the penalty area, which means he will be suspended for CUSA’s home tilt against Houston Dynamo this weekend. The loss to San Jose also puts Chivas USA just a single point above the disappointing, last-place Timbers.
CD Chivas USA 2014 Season
Another year, another start for Chivas USA. The junior squad at Carson, California’s StubHub Center (to the Los Angeles Galaxy), the Goats have fallen way back into the depths of MLS’s Western Conference since their two seasons of riding high (atop the conference in 2007, second in 2008). In the last two seasons, Chivas USA have gone through four head coaches; the 2014 season will be the first for Colombian Wilmer Cabrera. Also new to the Goats, but not new to red and white vertical stripes, is Mexican forward Adolfo (Bofo) Bautista, who spent several years with Chivas USA’s “big brothers” C.D. Guadalajara. Anchoring the Chivas USA defense is longtime American international defender Carlos Bocanegra, and goalkeeper Dan Kennedy.
