Chivas USA drew 2-2 with the Houston Dynamo Friday night at Home Depot Center with Atiba Harris and Shavar Thomas scoring. (Full disclosure: I was stuck at work with a project and missed the game).

Lawndale’s Kei Kamara went 80 minutes for Houston, but didn’t score. Houston midfielder Ricardo Clark was sent off in the 77th minute for a foul on Paulo Nagamura that cleared both benches. It was Chivas USA final game before next Saturday’s season opener against the Colorado Rapids at Home Depot Center.

Houston Dynamo – Pat Onstad, Richard Mulrooney, Bobby Boswell, Julius James (Chris Wondolowski 46), Wade Barrett, Geoff Cameron, Ricardo Clark (Corey Ashe 80), Stuart Holden, Brad Davis, Brian Ching (Kei Kamara 80), Brian Mullan.

HOU – Chris Wondolowski (unassisted) 46′
CHV – Shavar Thomas (Carey Talley ) 63′

Meanwhile in Galaxyland, tickets for the club’s friendly against AC Milan July 19 go on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday. The catch? You must also buy a ticket to the season opener March 22 against D.C. United (think they’re having trouble selling tix?).

Prices start at $50. Call 1-877-3GALAXY.

Updated: UCLA goalkeeper Brian Perk stopped two penalties as the U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team played to a scoreless draw Friday with Trinidad & Tobago, but advanced to the title match after winning 4-3 on penalty kicks. The U.S. plays Costa Rica Sunday for the championship.
