[MLS REWIND: Week 21] Young Mexican star Erick Torres scored in his MLS debut to give short-handed Chivas USA a 1-0 win over Toronto FC that ended its 14-game winless streak dating back more than three and a half months.

Carlos Bocanegra also debuted for Chivas USA but was handed a yellow card only 17 minutes into the game. Things deteriorated for the Rojiblancos, however, when Eric Avila was red-carded eight minutes later.

But the Chivas USA defense limited TFC to only 10 shots, and Torres won the game with a late goal.

-- The Colorado Rapids got an own goal from New England captain Jose Goncalves to earn a 2-1 comeback win over the Revolution and move into a fifth-place tie on points with the LA Galaxy in the Western Conference.

The Rapids dominated the first half, but Juan Toja's first goal as a member of the Revs gave them a 1-0 lead at halftime. Colorado responded with a goal by Nick LaBrocca in the 62nd minute and then the own goal five minutes later.
 
The defeat gave the Revs back-to-back losses in MLS play for the first time this season.

    I just don't understand this MLS-PRO Referee Sorin Stoica. In last nights' (07-17-13) Chivas vs Tornonto game at 23:36, Eric Avila (Chiv) laid down an aggressive tackle on Darrel Russell (Tor) who flew up into the air. Sorin, was about 15yds from the play with a direct, view of Eric sliding towards him and Russell and the backside of Russell as he was getting to the ball. Upon collision of the 2 players, Stoica blew his whistle multiple times, very hard, indicating a serious foul had been committed. I was seated in the stands, opposite side, about 50yds away and even though it looked like a hard tackle, in no way did it look like a Red Card. (When I replayed this at home, I was completely shocked to see Avila folding his legs underneath himself to avoid contact and Russell STANDING and JUMPING OFF of Avila's ankle and Tibia...OUCH!) Anyway Avila was sent off and Chivas played short-handed for 65min. At the time, the 'temperature' of the game was almost ice-cold with only one other Yellow Card given to Bocanegra for a sloppy tackle. At the 56th min Darrell Russell was involved with a cleats-up challenge on Kennedy the keeper, (who stayed down for several minutes in pain) but Justin Braun who was trying to help Kennedy (his former teamate) was given a Yellow Card..What the heck is going on here?? 'Google' Sorin Stoica and it is amazing how many games he has affected by his bad calls! What can be done to fix this?
