Chivas USA falls to Houston, 1-0, in Texas Pro Soccer Festival

Chivas USA fell 1-0 to the Houston Dynamo last night in the team's second game of the Texas Pro Soccer Festival. It was a close match, and Dwayne De Rosario scored the game's only goal in the 12th minute with a 30 yard strike.

Arnaldo Salazar almost tied it for Chivas USA late in the game, but his header hit the post. Chukwudi Chijindu had a good game for the Red-and-White, who play Toronto FC on Sunday in Chivas USA's final game of the Festival.

In the locker room before the game, the Chivas USA players found greetings from the local high school team who normally uses the room, and signs asking for autographs. Players were happy to oblige:

One poster even carried a portrait of Claudio Suarez:
