Turns out, Chivas USA ain't too bad after all.
Saturday's win was their third consecutive game. Jorge Flores and Jesse Marsch scored for the third consecutive game. And suddenly, Chivas USA is in a three-way tie atop the Western Conference standings.
Now, the table right now means nothing. It does not matter who is in first right now, but that Chivas USA is where they are now is a bit startling considering their poor early-season form. Chivas USA also picked up their second shutout of the season and second consecutive win over an Eastern team here at Home Depot Center.
Perhaps what's more remarkable about this stretch is who the club is doing damage with. Flores scored a nice goal with a left-footed volley in the 21st minute. Justin Braun set up Marsch's goal just a minute later. Bobby Burling started for the fourth straight game. Atiba Harris went the distance.
Chivas now heads to New York to face a club likely sagging in confidence as the Red Bulls lost their second consecutive match on Saturday, 1-0 at Houston.
Anyway, here's audio of how Preki saw his side's 2-0 win.
