CARSON, Calif. - Juan Pablo Angel scored in the 82nd minute to give Chivas USA their second win at home this season, defeating the Montreal Impact 2-1 at the Home Depot Center.

Seeking to put the Impact off-balance from the start, Chivas opened the scoring in the 15th minute. A shot by Juan Agudelo deflected off the thigh of Moreno and past goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts.

After the Chivas goal, Montreal began to pressure the Rojiblancos and found the equalizer in the 42nd minute. Davy Arnaud's cross created space for Brazilian midfielder Felipe, who beat a diving goalkeeper Dan Kennedy from close range.

Just five minutes after the pair came on as substitutes, Jorge Villafana fired a cross from the left side of midfield to Angel, who headed his third goal of the season past Ricketts to give Chivas three points.
