MetroStars 3 - 3 Chivas USA

Took my niece to Giants Stadium last night for a soccer match. What a great game! Action throughout!

Metros scored first on a penalty when Eddie Gaven was taken down in the box and Armado Guevara converted; but Chivas came back very aggressively and scored three goals (two by the always entertaining Juan Francisco Palencia) to leave my Metros languishing down by two goals at the half.

Eddie Gaven took another hit in the penalty area, and Guevara converted for his second goal of the night. In the 94th minute, Youri Djorkaeff passed a set-piece from just outside the box to Guevara on the left who tied the score with an impressive kick, completing his hat-trick!

We had a grand time, and it was a very well-played match from start to finish.
