In an MLS season in danger of being the lowest scoring in the league's 11-year history, Chivas USA is providing the relief for soccer fans who also had to suffer through a goal-deprived World Cup.
For the second week in a row, Chivas USA played a midweek road-game that ended
in a 3-3 tie. Last week, Chivas led 3-2 at Colorado before giving up a
stoppage-time goal. On Wednesday, Claudio Suarez poked in the late
equalizer after superb setup work from Jesse Marsch and Ante Razov,
four minutes into stoppage time. The game also featured a volleyed goal by
Columbus' Jeff Cunningham and long-range golazos from Columbus' Carey
Talley (30 yards) and Andy Williams, and Chivas rookie Jonathan
Bornstein, while Chivas' Ante Razov hit his league-leading 12th goal.
