Chivas USA select Maryland forward Casey Townsend in first round of MLS SuperDraft

Chivas USA selected Maryland forward Casey Townsend with the fifth overall pick in Thursday's MLS SuperDraft.

Townsend is the fourth Maryland player in three seasons to be a top-10 selection in the draft.

Townsend started all four seasons at Maryland and ended his career tied for third in Maryland scoring (43 goals) all-time. His team-leading 17 goals in 2011 was tied for the sixth most in a single season.

Chivas USA ended last season 8-14-12 (36 points) and eighth in the Western Conference.
