[MLS 2014 COUNTDOWN] Chivas USA picked up its first win of the MLS preseason on Monday morning when it beat the  USL PRO Orange County (formerly LA) Blues, 2-0, on goals by rookie midfielder Thomas McNamara out of Clemson and Matthew Fondy, who joined Chivas USA late in the 2013 season from the Blues.

Both Goats' goals came in the first half as McNamara scored on a rebound and Fondy scored his second goal in two games off a cross from Mauro Rosales.

FC TUCSON-HOUSTON. The Houston Dynamo got goals from Bryan Ownby and Omar Cummings -- both with blasts from more than 30 yards -- to beat the PDL's FC Tucson, 2-0, in their preseason match Monday in Tucson, Ariz.

Dynamo goalie Michael Lisch, a third-round draft pick out of New Mexico, preserved the shutout with a save on a penalty kick by Jason Romero in the 64th minute. Houston fielded close to a first team to start the match, its final preseason game before returning to Houston.

FC DALLAS-BK HACKEN. FC Dallas fell 3-1 in its second game against FC Hacken of its stay in the United Arab Emirates. Fabian Castillo had the lone goal for FCD, which had beaten the Swedish club, 3-0, on Friday.

-- Argentine Josema Bazan, an FC Dallas academy coach since April 2011, has been promoted to an assistant coaching position with the FC Dallas first team, the club announced today.

“In the same way that we look for talented players in our academy to sign Homegrown contracts with the first team, we want to promote our most talented coaches from within our system,” said FC Dallas technical director Fernando Clavijo. “We are very excited to have Josema join the first team. I believe he has a lot to offer as a coach at the professional level.”
