The Major League Soccer Disciplinary Committee didn’t take too kindly to the actions of two Chivas USA players last Sunday.

Both Gabe Farfan and Tristan Bowen have been suspended one game and fined undisclosed amounts for their actions during the 1-1 draw with the Colorado Rapids, the Disciplinary Committee announced.

Farfan was shown a straight red card for stamping on the leg of Rapids defender Shane O’Neill while Bowen was given a red card for spitting at Rapids left back Chris Klute. Both players will now miss Chivas USA’s next two matches, home vs. FC Dallas on Wednesday and home vs. the New York Red Bulls on August 25.

In addition, the Disciplinary Committee announced a fine of $2,000 to LA Galaxy head coach Bruce Arena for his comments on the officiating after his club’s 3-3 draw at FC Dallas.
