Chivas USA 3, Red Bulls 2

Erick Torres scored two goals, the first on a penalty kick, and

Chivas USA beat the New York Red Bulls 3-2 on Sunday.

Julio Morales also scored to help Chivas (5-14-6) win for the

first time in more than a month and for only the second time since

the end of March. Chivas hadn’t scored more than one goal in a game

since April 27, a span of 16 games.

Goalkeeper Dan Kennedy made two big saves and defenders Marky

Delgado and Bobby Burling saved shots off the goal line for


Tim Cahill and Dax McCarty scored for the Red Bulls (11-9-6),

both off Thierry Henry’s assists. New York would have claimed the

top spot in the Eastern Conference with a victory.

Torres put Chivas ahead for good in first-half stoppage,

converting a penalty kick after defender Ibrahim Sekagya barreled

him over in New York’s box. Torres extended the lead off a rebound

in the 81st minute.
