U.S. U-20 MNT Draws Atlas, Rounds out Copa Chivas Group Play Wednesday

GUADALAJARA (Jan. 26, 2010) -- Victor Chavez scored just three minutes after entering the game as a substitute, while goalkeeper Zac MacMath picked up his second assist, leading the U.S. to a 1-1 draw against Atlas at the 2010 Copa Chivas in Mexico.

Atlas jumped on the board first, after a scramble inside the U.S. penalty area. Edson Rivera finally got a solid shot off and beat MacMath from close range.

Seven minutes later, the U.S. responded when MacMath's punt was picked up by a streaking Chavez. Chavez brought the ball down cleanly, carried it into the box and beat goalkeeper Alberto Furrola to level the score.

The U.S. will round out group play at the Copa Chivas against Saprissa on Wednesday.
