Axel Mendez opened the scoring in the first half after sidestepping a Pateodores defender off of short corner, and slotting past a defenseless Pats goalkeeper to go up 1-0. The second Chivas goal came off of some individual brilliance from Ryo Fuji. Fuji danced around three Pats defenders inside the six-yard box, and found himself 1v1 with the Pats goalkeeper. Chivas' third and fourth goals came from Alejandro Vergara and Joshua Perez. It was the second straight shut out for the U16's, who currently sit in second place in the Southern Division.
