SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Chivas USA of Major League Soccer defeated its brother team, Mexico's Chivas de Guadalajara, 4-2 on penalty kicks Tuesday night in an exhibition game at Petco Park after regulation play ended in a 0-0 tie.

Chivas de Guadalajara goalkeeper Sergio Arias and Chivas USA goalkeeper Kevin Guppy both stopped the first penalty kicks they faced. Chivas USA made its next three penalty kicks and Chivas de Guadalajara two. Ulises Davila missed Chivas de Guadalajara's fourth kick.

Michael Lahoud gave Chivas USA the victory in the "ChivaClasico" by putting his penalty kick past Arias.

Playing before a crowd announced at 23,216, Chivas de Guadalajara led 21-17 in shots, but trailed 5-4 in shots on goal.

Zach Thornton made two saves for Chivas USA in the first half, while Guppy made two in the second half.

Luis Michel, one of three Chivas de Guadalajara players in Tuesday night's game to have played for Mexico's team that played in this year's World Cup, made one save in the first half. Arias made four saves in the second half.

"I'm very pleased with the performance of the team and very happy with the result," Chivas USA coach Martin Vasquez said. "I thought we set the tone from the beginning and got us through the game."

Chivas de Guadalajara is Mexico's most successful team, with 11 championships, and most popular, in part because it only uses Mexican players.
