Final Score: Chivas USA 3, New England 0
Carson, CA (Sports Network) - Chivas USA rolled to a 3-0 win over the New
England Revolution on Saturday at The Home Depot Center.
First-half goals from Nick LaBrocca and Marcos Mondaini handed the Goats a
two-goal lead at halftime, with Alejandro Moreno capping the scoring in the
57th minute for Chivas, which has won its last two games after starting the
season on a five-game winless run.
The Revolution (2-3-3) has lost three of its last four games and was well
below par on Saturday.
The scoring started in the 22nd minute with LaBrocca slipping between two Revs
defenders at the near post and heading home a cross from Ben Zemanski, who
then had a header saved from close range in the 35th.
But Chivas (2-2-3) doubled its lead right before the break when Moreno's cross
was finished off in front of goal by an acrobatic volley from Mondaini, who
scored for the first time in MLS.
New England then made an absolute mess of a clearance in the 57th minute to
hand Moreno his third goal of the season with the Chivas striker pouncing on a
loose ball seven yards from goal and easily beating goalkeeper Bobby
