You can't spell "comeback" with the "C" from Chivas

Chivas is alive in the Super Group thanks to a remarkable comeback.

The side (known formally as CD Guadalajara) was down, 2-0, to the Whitecaps from Vancouver with 10 minutes to go Monday at blustery Richland. Having managed only a draw in Sunday's tournament opener, the proud club from Mexico was on the verge of elimination.

But Chivas struck heroically for two late goals. The equalizer came on a nifty, twisting header from midfielder Ulises Davila three minutes into added time.

So, Chivas will need some help Wednesday evening, but the Goats can still squeeze into the semifinals with a win at the Pizza Hut Park stadium.
