Chivas USA postgame wrap

Real Salt Lake 1 Chivas USA 1

* Game story.

* Salt Lake City perspective.

*Chivas USA (4-9-3) are now undefeated in their last three MLS games.

Notable: Three Chivas USA players made their 2010 MLS debuts – midfielders Paulo Nagamura and Rodolfo Espinoza, as well as forward Giancarlo Maldonado.

Quotable:

“We came here with the attitude to win the game because we need to add points to stay close to all the teams in the conference,” said Chivas USA Coach Martin Vasquez. “We will take the point; it’s a good result considering the way things happened in the game. (Considering) the effort and the load of nine games in 28 days, I think it was a good result and we will take it.”

Chivas USA lineup: Dan Kennedy, Mariano Trujillo, Michael Umana, Dario Delgado, Ante Jazic, Michael Lahoud (Ben Zemanski 46), Paulo Nagamura (Jesus Padilla 69), Blair Gavin, Rodolfo Espinoza, Justin Braun, Giancarlo Maldonado (Carlos Borja 82).

Next for Chivas USA: against the Columbus Crew Saturday at Home Depot Center.
