CARSON, Calif. -- Erick Torres scored on a sidewinding kick in the final minute of stoppage time to give Chivas USA a 1-0 victory over the Montreal Impact on Saturday night.

Torres settled a deflected shot inside the penalty area and, with his back to the goal, sent a volley to the top right corner.

The late goal gave Chivas USA (5-7-5) its first three-game winning streak of the season -- all shutouts.

It was Torres' 12th goal of the season, leaving him two goals behind New York's Bradley Wright-Phillips for the MLS lead.

The Impact (3-8-5) are the only team in the MLS without a road victory.

Montreal's Andres Romero had an open shot outside the 6-yard box in the 66th minute, but his left-footed attempt was stopped by goalkeeper Dan Kennedy.

U.S. goalkeeper Tim Howard attended the game.
