Result: Chivas edge out 10-man Real Salt Lake

Erick Torres scores the only goal of the game to guide Chivas USA to the third win of the MLS season as they defeat 10-man Real Salt Lake.

Chivas USA have earned just their third win of the season as they defeated 10-man Real Salt Lake thanks to a strike from Erick Torres in their MLS clash.

The visitors were reduced to 10 men within the first 10 minutes of the game as Luke Mulholland was sent off for a dangerous challenge on Martin Rivero.

Chivas nearly went ahead in the 20th minute when Donny Toia drilled an effort at goal from the edge of the area, but his shot clipped the post and went wide.

Joao Plata could have given the 10 men the advantage when he managed to get behind the Chivas defence, but when under pressure he could only fire his effort wide of the post.

Salt Lake were punished for this missed chance when the home side took the lead in the 34th minute in spectacular fashion as Torres caught Tony Lochhead's cross first time on the volley and his effort raced past Jeff Attinella into the top corner.

After the break, Mauro Rosales should have doubled his side's lead when he controlled the ball into the box and let fly with a shot on the half-volley, but his effort went just over the bar.

Chivas continued to search for the second goal to kill off the game and nearly found it when Carlos Alvarez won the ball in the box, although his low shot went inches wide of the post.

Real made a last-ditch attempt to try to salvage a point from the game but were unable to beat Dan Kennedy as the home side secured the three points.
