Federico Higuain scored early in the second half as Columbus

beat Chivas USA 3-0 on Saturday night in the teams’ regular-season

Higuain’s score came in the 51st minute as he lined up a 25-yard

shot that went in off the right post. In the 88th minute, Williams

knocked in a ball off a corner kick sent in by Eddie Gaven in the

88th minute to make it 2-0.

In stoppage time, Oduro raced 75 yards after a Chivas coner

kick, got around Chivas’ Dan Kennedy and easily finished into an

empty goal.

Seven players – including five on loan from Chivas Guadalajara –

made their MLS debuts, as did coach Jose Luis Sanchez Sola.

Referee Chris Penso handed out four yellow cards to Chivas.
