[MLS 2014 COUNTDOWN] Mexican forward Adolfo Bautista’s first goal on a free kick was enough for Chivas USA to beat Western Conference champion Real Salt Lake, 1-0, and keep the Rojiblancos unbeaten through their first stage of preseason.

Chivas USA has two wins and a tie heading on the road to Las Vegas (Sunday's ProSoccer Challenge) and Tucson (two-week Desert Diamond Cup) for its second leg of preseason.
 
Bofo scored inside the left post in the 11th minute after third-round draft pick Kristopher Tyrpak -- who impressed from his left wing position -- was fouled outside the box.

Real Salt Lake started eight players who started during the 2013 playoffs.

-- Chivas USA made Paul Grafer the final addition to its technical staff as he joins the Goats as goalkeeper coach. He joins Paul Caffrey as an assistant under new Chivas USA head coach Wilmer Cabrera. They all worked in similar capacities with the U.S. U-17 men’s national team during Cabrera's tenure that included trips to the 2009 and 2011 Under-17 World Cup finals.
 
A College of William & Mary product, Grafer played six seasons with the Colorado Rapids and MetroStars. Cabrera, Caffrey and Grafer were all teammates on the USL Long Island Rough Riders.

MEDRANDA DEAL COMPLETED. Sporting Kansas City concluded the purchase of young Colombian midfielder Jimmy Medranda for an undisclosed transfer fee from Deportivo Pereira. He joined Sporting KC on loan last August.
 
"Jimmy is a good, young talent with a lot of potential," SKC manager Peter Vermes said. "It was a goal of ours to try to re-sign him at the end of this season as a Sporting Kansas City player as opposed to being on loan. We're excited to have been able to accomplish that goal."
 
Medranda, 19, was part of the second youngest roster in Major League Soccer last season with Sporting KC and made his MLS debut in September at Sporting Park, becoming the youngest player to appear in a match for the club in 2013.
 
Medranda arrived in Kansas City on Monday and will travel with the team to Orlando on Friday for the 2014 Disney Pro Soccer Classic that begins next week.
