Update: Bolaños’ injury

By Olivia Cervantes

Ecuadorian midfielder Miller Bolaños made his ninth consecutive start in tonight’s 1-1 draw with FC Dallas. Throughout the first and beginning of second half, Bolaños created great scoring opportunities (two shots on goal) for the Goats, but was unable to get one into the back of the net. Then in the 79th minute, Bolaños stopped running and left the field. Why? According to Assistant Athletic Trainer Derek Lawrance, it was the cause of a minor ankle sprain. A minute later, Head Coach Robin Fraser replaced the injured midfielder with Frenchman Laurent Courtois.

The Goats have this weekend off and due to yellow card accumulation, Bolaños will miss Chivas USA’s next match against Colorado Rapids, allowing the midfielder to have full recuperation ahead of the final match of the season at Dallas.
