U15’s Chivas USA Development 2 vs OC Revolution 3
Whittier Soccer Complex
The U15’s were playing a make-up game on Saturday versus OC Revolution. Goals from Israel Torres and Alejandro Lucio looked to be enough to get an away result, but the home team scored on a last minute free kick to take the win 3-2.
U14’s Chivas USA 2 vs Real So Cal 1
On Saturday the U14’s faced probably the best team in their division. Although the U14’s did not play their best game, they managed to win the game 2-1. Both goals were unassisted. Alex Luna scored the first goal with a powerful shot from 25 yards out that hit the post and went in. The second goal came from a long range shot/cross from our left side by Francisco Lara. On the other end they score one on us because of a bad clearance by the GK.

U12’s Chivas USA Development 4 vs South Bay Force 0

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 30TH
U14’s Chivas USA Academy 2 vs Beach FC 3
During the first half of play Christopher Huerta headed in a ball into the goal after receiving a great cross from Francisco Lara. The first half didn’t end the way coach Alex intended when goalkeeper Jaime Serna Granillo collided with a Beach FC forward and had to be carried off the field. In the second half, Jason Ballejo equalized the match on a breakaway. Beach FC added a late goal to take the 3-2 win. It was a disappointing loss, but more importantly was the health of their teammate.
U9’s Chivas USA Academy 6 vs Exiles SC 0
On Sunday the U9's played PVSC Exiles Black and bounced back from their loss last week with a win by a score of 6-0.
