Rapids 2, Chivas USA 0
Martin Rivero and Kamani Hill scored first-half goals in the
Colorado Rapids’ 2-0 victory over Chivas USA on Saturday night.
Colorado (10-19-4) won for the first time since Sept. 5 and
guaranteed that it won’t finish last in the Western Conference.

been shut out in six of its last seven.
Rivero opened the scoring in the 16th minute, converting a
wide-open shot from close range for his second goal of the season.
Tyson Wahl played the ball in from the left flank and Jaime
Castrillon flicked a header to Rivero. Hill scored in the 40th
minute on a header from 12 yards.
Goalkeeper Tim Melia made his MLS debut for Chivas. Dan Kennedy
missed the game because of a knee injury, ending his streak of
consecutive starts at 64.
