The San Jose Earthquakes invite you to "Unleash Your Passion" this Saturday night at Buck Shaw Stadium for the MLS regular season opener against the New England Revolution. Two days and counting...
Simon Dawkins made his potentially last game in an Earthquakes uniform a special one, scoring two of the team's four goals en route to a season-ending 4-2 victory over FC Dallas. For his superb first strike of the night, a rocket to the Upper 90, Dawkins was one of five nominees for MLS Goal of the Week. Vote early, and vote often.
Chris Wondolowski carried the San Jose Earthquakes to victory against the New England Revolution last weekend with a pair of quality goals. The first of those was rightly included in the MLS Goal of the Week competition, and you can vote him the winner here. Catching a 75 yard bomb from David Bingham, Wondo needed just the slightest of gaps in the Revs defense to put the Quakes up 1-0. As Jay Heaps described on the broadcast, "World Class" indeed.
Chris Wondolowski passes Landon Donovan on the all-time San Jose Earthquakes scoring list with this beautiful volleyed finish against Sporting Kansas City. (Nice job by the video editors to cut out the Teal Bunbury equalizer that occurred just seconds later.)
Steven Lenhart was named MLS Player of the Week by the North American Soccer Reporters on Monday after scoring a hat trick and notching an assist in San Jose's 4-2 win at D.C. United over the weekend. Since Lenhart's return to the starting XI from arthroscopic knee surgery on April 30, the Quakes are an impressive 4-1-2. Along with Chris Wondolowski and Simon Dawkins, Lenhart makes up part of the highest scoring offensive trio in MLS.
Bend it like Bobby. Curve it like Convey. Whatever you want to call it, Bobby Convey's spectacular free kick goal for the Earthquakes against the New England Revolution had the crowd at Buck Shaw Stadium buzzing. Was it intended as a cross or a shot on goal? Only Convey knows for sure, and he's not talking!
The San Jose Earthquakes PR team and forward Steven Lenhart treated English midfielder Simon Dawkins to a true California experience -- the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. All I have to say is that I hope Lenhart brings down the hammer in front of goal this season as well as he did on the Sledge Hammer carnival game!
