Final Score: Chivas USA 1, Toronto FC 1
Toronto, ON (Sports Network) - Alejandro Moreno scored in the third minute and
Chivas USA held on for a 1-1 draw against Toronto FC at BMO Field on Saturday
in Major League Soccer.
Chivas (0-2-1) lost its first two matches of the season at home, but picked up
a big road point to hand new coach Robin Fraser his first result.
Alan Gordon scored in the 36th for Toronto (1-1-1), which played well just one
day after star midfielder Dwayne De Rosario was traded to Red Bull New York.
Moreno scored the opener when he ran onto a loose ball in the penalty area and
beat Toronto FC goalkeeper Stefan Frei from 12 yards for his first goal of the
Toronto hit the woodwork midway through the half, but Gordon notched his first
of the season when he headed a Jacob Peterson free kick inside the right post
from close range to leave Chivas goalie Dan Kennedy no chance.
Maicon Santos had a goal called back for a questionable offside before half as
Toronto nearly grabbed the lead, and missed a breakaway chance after half when
Chivas' Andrew Boyens made a sliding tackle to prevent a sure goal.
Toronto visits the San Jose Earthquakes in its next match on April 9, the same
day Chivas hosts the Columbus Crew in its next game.
