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.
