(Sunday, Sept. 13, 2009)
From The Sports Network
Final Score: Chivas USA 2, New England 0
Carson, CA (Sports Network) - Chivas USA got goals on each side of the half to
earn a 2-0 victory over the visiting New England Revolution in Major League
Soccer action at The Home Depot Center on Sunday afternoon.
Chivas USA (11-9-3) dominated the game from start to finish, out-shooting New
England 18-2 in the game while allowing zero shots on goal.
The Goats got the game's first goal in the 10th minute after Carey Talley
played a long ball to the right side to Justin Braun in the offensive third.
Braun then crossed to Maicon Santos, who fired home from close range for his
first MLS goal.
New England finally got its first shot a little after the hour mark, just
before each team had a player ejected - Chivas USA's Talley and New England's
Edgaras Jankauskas - in the 70th minute for violent conduct. But the offensive
chances were few and far between for the Eastern Conference club.
Chivas USA's Sacha Kljestan closed out the scoring seconds before the final
whistle, knocking home a penalty kick after Eduardo Lillingston was taken down
in the Revs' area in the 94th minute.
New England (9-8-6) will try to rebound at New York on Friday, while Chivas
USA plays at Seattle on Saturday in its next MLS fixture.
