Kekuta Manneh scored in the 81st minute to give the Vancouver Whitecaps a 1-1 tie with 10-man Chivas USA on Sunday.

Vancouver (1-0-1) ultimately capitalized on a Chivas turnover to tie it. Dani Fragoso, who entered the match a minute earlier, lost the ball near the halfway line. Darren Mattocks pounced on it, carried it into the penalty area and fed Manneh, who rifled a shot into the back of the net.

Erick Torres scored for Chivas (1-0-1) in the 45th minute. Mauro Rosales sprinted down the middle of the field and fed Torres, who fired a shot on goal. The ball deflected off Vancouver's Jey DeMerit and bounced across the goal line for Torres' second goal of the season.

Chivas midfielder Agustin Pelletieri was ejected in the 13th minute for a studs-up tackle on Vancouver's Pedro Morales.
