MLS Game Summary - Portland at Chivas USA



(Wednesday, July 18, 2012)

From The Sports Network

Final Score: Chivas USA 1, Portland 0

Carson, CA (Sports Network) - Miller Bolanos recorded his first career goal in Major League Soccer on Wednesday, finding the back of the net in the 16th minute to help Chivas USA earn a 1-0 win over the Portland Timbers.

Chivas entered the match with the worst home record in MLS, but Wednesday's win saw the Goats (6-7-5) improve to 3-6-2 at The Home Depot Center and pull further away from the Western Conference cellar.

It did not take the home side long to grab the lone goal of the affair.

Ryan Smith collected an aerial ball on the right flank and beat his man to play a low ball across the face of goal. Portland goalkeeper Troy Perkins parried away the delivery but Bolanos was waiting at the back post to slot home from close range after just 15 minutes.

The Goats came close to doubling the advantage down the stretch.

Juan Pablo Angel latched on to through ball 16 minutes from time only for Perkins to punch the ball away. It fell to Paolo Cardozo, but his chipped effort bounced in front of goal and skipped just wide of the post.

Ben Zemanski nearly added an insurance goal in the 81st minute when he evaded several Portland defenders in the box, but he was unable to hit the target with his attempt.

Chivas staved off some late half-chances from the visitors to claim all three points and extend its unbeaten run to four games.

Portland (5-10-4) stays put on 19 points for the season, four points behind Chivas after losing its third straight league match.

The Timbers remain winless on the road this term, going 0-7-2 away from Jeld- Wen Field. They will look for that elusive first away victory next time out when they face FC Dallas at FC Dallas Stadium on Saturday.

Chivas also returns to action on Saturday as the club gears up for the Super Clasico against the Los Angeles Galaxy at The Home Depot Center. The Goats will be designated as the away team.
