Chivas USA 0-1 Vancouver Whitecaps: Jay DeMerit gives 'Caps first ever away win

Chivas USA 0-1 Vancouver Whitecaps: Jay DeMerit gives 'Caps first ever away win

Victor Decolongon

New coach Martin Rennie only needed one chance to break Vancouver's winless road streak, as the Whitecaps beat Chivas USA 1-0.

The Vancouver Whitecaps earned a franchise first away win in MLS on the first time of asking in 2012. The club went winless on the road in its expansion season last year.

Chivas USA, meanwhile, has lost its first two matches of the season, both at home.

Jay DeMerit provided the game's only goal, when he dove to head home a corner kick midway through the second half. It was the central defender's first MLS goal as well as Vancouver's second from a corner.

The Goats held nearly 65 percent of possession and out-shot Vancouver 11 to six.
