Chivas Win West; KC Clinches

Nill-Nill draws aren’t always as lifeless and dull as the scoreline indicates. That was again the case last night as the passion of the match overwhelmed both sides in Chivas nill nill draw with Houston. The winner take all match for the Western crown led to some heated exchanges between players, a red card for Lawson Vaughn, hard tackling, players in the refs faces and finally at the end a near shoving match between the two Head Coaches. But Chivas got the draw they needed and they will be seeded #1 in the Western Conference playoffs.

Elsewhere Kansas City clinched a playoff spot with a 2-0 win over struggling FC Dallas. Colorado was eliminated by Robbie Findley’s late strike which gave Real Salt Lake the satisfaction of having ended their rivals season. Look for Salt Lake next season to make a real push towards the upper reaches of MLS.

Today the winner take all match between the LA Galaxy and Chicago Fire will be seen on Telefutura at 3pm ET.
