It was when Dominic Oduro's shot in the 29th minute hit the back of the net Sunday afternoon that Chivas USA should have known it was all over. Oduro's first goal of the Major League Soccer season was also the Houston Dynamo's second of the game, and because it has been more than a year since Chivas last scored three goals in a game, Chivas was destined for defeat. To their credit, the Chivas players threw everything they had at Houston, but the Dynamo, MLS champion as recently as 2006 and 2007, ended up winning, 3-2, in Carson and will play the Seattle Sounders in the first round of the playoffs.

MLS released a list of finalists for its major postseason awards Thursday, and Keane's name was nowhere to found despite the fact he finished fourth in the league in scoring with 16 goals. Keane also finished first in something called the Castrol Index, a mathematical formula similar to the NFL's quarterback rating that measures everything a player does during a game.

Two weeks before the Major League Soccer season opened, Jose Domene, 31, Chivas USA's youthful general manager, sat in a rickety school bus on its way to yet another in a series of events to promote a team that had lost its way both on the field and in the community. This year, he pledged, it would no longer be business as usual for his faceless franchise, one that hasn't had a winning season or a playoff appearance since 2009. Thursday he backed those words with action, swinging a pair of major deals that landed his team a dynamic young striker in 19-year-old Juan Agudelo and a rugged central defender in Danny Califf.

Through its first six home games, Chivas USA had produced only one victory, three losses and two ties going into Saturday night's game against Portland at the Home Depot Center. "These fans deserve better," Chivas midfielder Ben Zemanski said after the latest lackluster home performance, a 1-1 draw against Vancouver on Wednesday. "We need to play aggressive in front of them, and go for wins in front of them, and we need to show them that. We need to figure out how to get wins at home.

Chivas USA played a soccer game it didn't win Sunday. Nothing new about that. The team has won just 16 times in the last two years combined. But in this case, a 1-0 loss to the Houston Dynamo on Andre Hainault's goal two minutes into stoppage time felt almost like a victory. Almost. "I'll never say I'm happy with a loss," goalkeeper Dan Kennedy said after his team's Major League Soccer season opener, played before a Home Depot Center crowd generously announced at 14,464.
