Congratulations to our teams and thank you to our players, parents and coaches for their dedication and commitment to Chivas USA!


B10 Chivas USA 1, Santa Barbara 2
Rincon Park, Chino
The 10's tasted defeat for the first time this fall season as a hungry Santa Barbara squad scored in the last minute to beat the little goats 2-1. Playing down a goal most of the game the U10's came back to even things up 1-1 on Tomy Angels 2nd half goal. Despite several opportunities to score the boys could not put another one in the back of the net. The U10's play their final league game next Saturday against the Gunners of Arsenal.

B11 Chivas USA 4, Fram 0
Veterans Park, Pomona
The U11’s took sole possession of first place this past Saturday with a 4-0 victory over Fram. The little rojiblancos dominated possession in the first half, stringing pass after pass, creating multiple chances in front of the Fram goal. Goals came from Diego Lopez (2), Guillermo Lopez and Bryan Rosales. It was another stellar performance from the Chivas defense. The little goats play their last SCDSL game on December 1, where they clinch first place in the Under 11 division.

B14 Chivas USA 4, Pats LA 2
Veterans Park, Pomona
Saturday morning Chivas BU14 took the field looking to avenge their earlier loss to Pats LA. In the first five minutes of the game Chivas went down by two goals by a counterattacking Pats LA team. Chivas stuck to their disciplined play, maintaining possession of the ball and attacking Pats LA. The first real scoring opportunity for Chivas came in the 15th minute when Tyler Marquez shot hit the cross bar. Then a few minutes later, Diego Escobar shot hit the post again. Later in the half, David Ramon attacked from the right side penetrating through a couple of defenders and took a shot that hit the post, but this time Diego Escobar was there to put it away. A minute before the half ended, David Ramon spotted Caesar Ramon on the left , who was taken down after dribbling past a Pats LA defender. Tyler Marquez converted the PK to tie the game.

The second half began with Chivas playing with the same determination and domination. In the 52nd minute Jose Ortega scored from a corner kick to give Chivas the first lead of the game. There were several more opportunities by the little goats and in the 60 minute Ortega put a perfect cross to Diego inside the area, where Diego headed the ball in for the fourth goal. This was a great comeback by the U14’s, who showed great mental strength & discipline.

B15 Chivas USA 4, Real So Cal White 1
Veterans Park, Pomona
The Chivas USA BU15's played their last game of the season on a windy, cool day in Pomona. They won their final game 4 -1 vs. Real So Cal ~ White, and finished the season 8-2.
