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.
