Torres scores late, Chivas USA beats Impact 1-0
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.
U.S. goalkeeper Tim Howard attended the game.
