Frisco, TX (Sports Network) - Chivas USA closed out its season in exciting
fashion on Sunday as goals from Laurent Courtois and Juan Agudelo in the final
minutes helped the team to a 2-2 draw at FC Dallas.
Dallas appeared to be well on its way to a season-ending victory with second-
half tallies from Jackson and Fabian Castillo. However, Courtois pulled a goal
back for the Goats in the 90th minute before Agudelo scored just before the
final whistle to give Chivas a point.
Agudelo squandered the two best chances in the first half and saw Dallas go in
front in the 73rd minute as Jackson scored with his thigh after a long ball
from David Ferreira.
Dallas went 2-0 up 10 minutes from time with Ferreira once again playing
provider with a through ball to Castillo.
The goal from Courtois in the 90th minute seemed to be little more than a
consolation strike, but it proved to be more when Agudelo scored at the death.
Courtois had a hand in the equalizer as well when he got into the area on the
left and slid the ball to the front of the net where Agudelo redirected it
past goalkeeper Kevin Hartman.
Despite the late rally, Chivas ends the season on a 14-game winless streak.
