Last season was challenging for Chivas USA, but above all, there were three moments of 2012 that are up for the L.A. Sports Awards. Below are the nominated moments:

-Chivas USA earned their first win of the season on away turf. On March 24, the Red-and-White travelled to Utah to face Real Salt Lake in the third match of the season. In the 72nd minute of the match, defender Ante Jazic made a cross that RSL goalkeeper Nick Rimando attempted to grab but let go, allowing Townsend to score his first professional and winning goal of the match.

-A goal from Jose Correa in the first SuperClasico of 2012 gave the Red-and-White their first victory against the LA Galaxy since 2007. The goal came in the second half of the match after former Chivas USA defender David Junior Lopes stopped a ball with his arm, resulting in a penalty, and the win for the Goats.

-The Red-and-White ended the 2012 season on a high note. What seemed to be a 2-nil win for FC Dallas on Oct. 28, 2012, Chivas USA made a dramatic turnaround, earning a draw in the dying minutes of the match. Laurent Courtois notched the first goal for the Goats in the 90th minute of the match, ten minutes after coming in to the game as a sub. In the 93rd minute, Juan Agudelo was able to get the second goal for the Goats, and the final 2-2 draw.
