MLS Game Summary - Chivas USA at San Jose



(Wednesday, July 2, 2014)

From The Sports Network

Final Score: Chivas USA 1, San Jose 0

Santa Clara, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Erick Torres notched his 11th goal of the season on Wednesday and it was enough to lead Chivas USA to a 1-0 win over the San Jose Earthquakes at Buck Shaw Stadium.

Torres struck in the 53rd minute after San Jose was unable to clear a cross Mauro Rosales, while Dan Kennedy and the Chivas defense made the goal hold up to give the Goats seven points from their last three matches.

San Jose, meanwhile, has now lost three straight games by a 1-0 score, and the team will be happy to get forward Chris Wondolowski back from World Cup duty as soon as possible.

Yannick Djalo was the most dangerous man on the field for either side in the first half as he forced Kennedy into a decent save after 15 minutes before narrowly missing the near post with a well-struck volley shortly before the break.

Chivas didn't muster a lot in the attacking third in the first half, but the breakthrough came in the 53rd when Torres pounced on a clearance attempt from a Rosales cross to beat goalkeeper Jon Busch.

San Jose had chances to equalize over the final 10 minutes, yet Kennedy denied a good header from Ty Harden before surviving close calls from Djalo and Jean- Baptiste Pierazzi, whose rebound attempt on a scramble in front of goal was blocked by the Chivas defense.

Marco Delgado wasted an opportunity to put the match away in the closing minutes for Chivas after being set up by Leandro Barrera as he fired the ball over an open net, although the mistake didn't prove costly.
