There is laughter in the Chivas USA locker room these days, laughter and the sort of camaraderie that comes from winning. Take Jesse Marsch, for instance. One of Major League Soccer's original players, Marsch played his 301st regular-season game Sunday evening, a 2-1 win over the Columbus Crew at the Home Depot Center. "It is a little bit depressing because I'm halfway through my career now," Marsch, 35, joked after Chivas USA's third consecutive victory. So, is a 30-0 season in the cards?

They held a track meet at the Home Depot Center on Saturday night but called it a soccer game. Chivas USA and Toronto FC ran flat-out for 90 minutes -- even though there was nary a gold medal in sight -- and at the end the home team edged the visitors at the wire. Barely. In the fourth and final minute of stoppage time, one of the players who had run the least -- Toronto goalkeeper Greg Sutton -- accidentally allowed the game to slip literally through his fingers as Chivas won, 2-1, on a rare goal by Atiba Harris.

Paulo Nagamura's job description involves a lot of hard running, a lot of timely tackling and a lot of defensive work in Chivas USA's midfield. On Saturday night, the 26-year-old Brazilian did all of that but also added a new and unexpected wrinkle. He scored two goals in the space of five minutes -- only the fifth and sixth goals of his four-year and 113-game Major League Soccer career -- as Chivas came from behind to defeat the Colorado Rapids, 2-1, in the MLS season opener for both teams.
