Tyrpak scores in first action, Borja adds winner in Chivas USA's 2-1 victory over Rapids


CARSON, California — Felix Borja headed in Akira Kaji's cross in the 85th minute for the go-ahead goal in Chivas USA's 2-1 victory over the Colorado Rapids on Saturday night.

Kristopher Tyrpak tied it for Chivas USA (8-18-6) in the 65th minute, moments after entering the game for the first action of his MLS career. From 25 yards out, Tyrpak dribbled through four defenders and toe-punched it past goalkeeper Clint Irwin.

Chivas beat Colorado (8-16-8) at home for the first time since 2009 and won its second straight after a seven-game losing streak.

John Neeskens opened the scoring in the 30th minute for Colorado. The Rapids extended their club-record winless streak to 12 games.
