We demonstrate that SO(Nc) gauge theories with matter fields in the vector representation confine due to monopole condensation and break the SU(NF) chiral symmetry to SO(NF) via the quark bilinear. Our results are obtained by perturbing the N=1 supersymmetric theory with anomaly-mediated supersymmetry breaking.
