Reserves: Chivas USA lose 2-0 to FC Dallas

Another loss, but this one doesn't count.

The morning after Chivas USA's first team tasted defeat for the first time in 2014, the club tasted it once more, as Chivas USA's reserves opened MLS Reserve League play with a 2-0 loss to FC Dallas' reserves on Sunday. Rookie Tesho Akindele had both goals for the hosts, in the 39th and 89th minutes, respectively, and both assisted by midfielder Danny Garcia.

Based on FC Dallas' match report of the game, the Goats had several chances, with Caleb Calvert, Michael Nwiloh, and Kristopher Tyrpak getting opportunities, but they couldn't get any to go on on the day.

Here was Chivas' starting lineup:

Tim Melia; Andrew Ribeiro, Andrew Jean-Baptiste, Michael Nwiloh, Donny Toia; Kris Tyrpak, Agustin Pelletieri, Daniel Fragoso, Mario Ledezma; Adolfo Bautista, Matthew Fondy

Nwiloh still has not been signed to a contract, but he continues to be with the team. Ledezma is a member of the U-23 team.

To begin the second half, Trevor Spangenberg replaced Melia, and Calvert came on for Jean-Baptiste (though it does not appear he played as a defender -- not sure who moved to center back with AJB's departure).

In the 66th minute, Carlos Alvarez got a run-out for the first time, entering for Bofo, while CUSA U-23 player Javier Castro replaced Tyrpak.

Another U-23 player, Joel Contreras, replaced his teammate Ledezma in the 90th minute.

The next official reserve match for the Goats is on April 7, when Chivas will officially begin their involvement in the MLS-USL partnership by taking on Sacramento Republic FC at 11 am at the SHC Track & Field Stadium. Several people with Chivas USA ties are on the Republic now, so it should be an interesting one.
