Match Highlights Men of the Match
Rank Player What We Saw
1 Andy Gruenebaum Did what he's been doing all year, producing a number of spectacular saves to keep his side in position to grab a result.
2 Tony Tchani Changed where the game was played by imposing his physicality on the Chivas midfield. How long 'til he's finally a starter?
3 Dan Kennedy Not a lot more you can ask from your 'keeper. Every player on Chivas owes him an apology to one degree or another.
