"It’s a team we played really well this year actually. We were up two goals in the first two games and ended up losing; we’re up a goal twice in the third game and ended up tying," said Landon Donovan. "That was a little bit the story of their season and if we can play them well again and learn from those lessons and use our experience then we feel we have a chance in this series.” ... Mike Magee continued his remarkable run of form in the MLS Cup Playoffs. A year ago, he scored in each of the Galaxy's first three playoff matches. “He’s a type of player that shines in moments like this,” Donovan said. “There’s something special about players like that. A lot of guys do it when games don’t matter, or they’ll score the third goal in a 3-0 win that doesn’t matter, but Mike scores goals that matter. He’s done it consistently since he’s been here.” ... David Beckham now has an assist in five consecutive postseason matches, recording an assist in every one of LA's four games last year. He has played a part in each one of Mike Magee's playoff goals over the last two seasons. “That's what Mike does. He gets in positions,” said Beckham. “He's a clever player – he's a real intelligent player.” ... Donovan added to his record tally with postseason goal No. 21, in his 30th career match in the MLS Cup Playoffs. He's scored now in the last four playoff matches for the Galaxy, including the only goal in last year's MLS Cup Final. "We’ve got a number of guys that have the experience and know how to play in games like this even if you’re down a goal and I thought our attitude was a lot better in the second half. Determination and just our drive to win the game was real impressive,” said Donovan. ... There was one key change in the Galaxy lineup for the knockout match, as Sean Franklin was held out of the team. Hector Jimenez slotted in at right back. “Sean was tight from the game Sunday. We actually expect him to be back and we thought if he played tonight we could miss him for the rest of the year in playoffs, so we just made that decision,” said Galaxy head coach Bruce Arena.

The Earthquakes move into the MLS Cup Playoffs riding a nine-game undefeated streak, their longest of the season and the longest for the club since 2008. “Have we been playing our best soccer lately? I wouldn’t say that,” striker Alan Gordon said. “But we haven’t been losing. We’re not on a bad streak. I think we’re all ready to amp up. Momentum’s still in our favor.” ... For the season, the Quakes ended with 72 goals -- the most by a team in MLS in more than a decade. Nine of those goals came in meetings with their semifinal series opponents in LA. “Even though we’re a very dynamic team offensively and we like to be SAN JOSE EARTHQUAKES creative and really get after our opponents, we’re going to have to hold each other accountable on the defense side of things,” defender Jason Hernandez said. SUBSTITUTES FROM “Because if we can’t keep the ball out of our net, it’s not really going to matter.” ... The 1 Bingham GK Galaxy have scored seven goals in those three meetings with San Jose -- one of 5 Ring MF which the Quakes won with a trademark goal. “The conceding of goals is what we’ll 7 Stephenson MF tighten up,” Yallop said. “We’ve got to make sure we’re not leaking goals, that’s for 9 Guvenisik FW sure. We’re a team that attacks, so the way we play is open. But I think we’ve given 10 Dawkins MF up some soft goals." ... When Chris Wondolowski won the MLS Golden Boot for the 12 Corrales DF first time in 2010, he added another goal in the postseason as the Quakes upset the 13 Newton GK New York Red Bulls in the opening round. “Everything’s just magnified, in the fact that 14 Alexandre FW you have to do all the little things,” Wondolowski said. “All these games are so close 16 Gordon FW and come down to mental mistakes or things of that nature. Every set piece, every 17 Gjertsen MF foul is that much more important.” ... The Quakes saw a streak of eight games where 19 Garza FW they had scored multiple goals come to an end in the season finale in Portland. But 20 Tracy FW while they've outscored opponents 24-11 over their nine-game unbeaten streak, they 27 Pizarro FW have reached draws in four of the last six games. "There’s less forgiveness for errors. 28 Zayner DF 55 Opara DF When you make mistakes, you’re punished, and there’s no second chances. Once you’re out, you’re out," said Gordon. "Everything matters. Every little play, we have to be focused. We have to be completely tuned in as a team, which is what got us here; being a good team.”


SAN JOSE EARTHQUAKES v LA GALAXY– 2012 LEAGUE BOXSCORES LA GALAXY 2, SAN JOSE EARTHQUAKES 3

May 23, 2012 -- The Home Depot Center LA--Jimenez 1 (Barrett 2, Juninho 1) 3 LA--Magee 1 (Beckham 3) 73 SJ--Lenhart 5 (Chavez 5) 76 SJ--Stephenson 2 (penalty kick) 82 SJ--Gordon 4 (Hernandez 1) 94+  Barely three minutes in, Juninho slipped a ball into the area for Chad Barrett, who then sent a backheel to a charging Hector Jimenez, who beat San Jose ‘keeper Jon Busch to the far post.  The match changed on the hour when Jimenez was sent off by referee Jair Marrufo after a tackle on Steven Beitashour.  The Galaxy doubled their lead in the 73rd minute. David Beckham floated a ball to Mike Magee on the left. Magee faked, shook around the ‘keeper and buried the ball into the roof of the goal. But the Quakes cut it three minutes later when Marvin Chávez whipped in a corner kick and Steven Lenhart buried a diving header.  San Jose found the equalizer with eight minutes remaining. Jason Hernandez unloaded a shot from the corner of the area and Beckham got a piece of it with his arm. Khari Stephenson easily converted the resulting penalty.  There was one final twist in stoppage time. Hernandez launched a long ball into the Galaxy area and Alan Gordon took advantage of indecision with the bouncing ball, looping a header over Brian Perk’s head.

SAN JOSE EARTHQUAKES 4, LA GALAXY 2 June 30, 2012 -- Stanford Stadium SJ--Lenhart 6 (unassisted) 7 LA--Beckham 3 (free kick) 31 LA--own goal (Hernandez) 36 LA--Donovan 6 (Jimenez 1, Magee 3) 41 SJ--Bernardez 1 (Chavez 6) 44 SJ--Cronin 1 (Lenhart 1, Beitashour 6) 47 SJ--Wondolowski 14 (Corrales 5, Chavez 7) 61  Steven Lenhart put the Quakes up in the seventh minute, tapping home the rebound of a Marvin Chávez drive that Galaxy goalkeeper Josh Saunders could only parry.  But the Galaxy were level in the 31st minute after Mike Magee was pulled down some 21 yards out. A flat-footed Jon Busch could only watch David Beckham’s masterfully struck free kick sail into the upper corner at the near post.  Five minutes later, Jason Hernandez tried to clear Hector Jimenez's dangerous cross, but instead knocked it past the helpless Busch. Landon Donovan then put the Galaxy in the driver’s seat with his 41st-minute score, a clinical finish from the heart of the box after a tic-tac-toe move that came after Hernandez's back pass was intercepted in front of the goal.

But the Quakes pulled a goal back just before the half, when Victor Bernárdez made a near-post run to meet a Chávez corner kick from the right, lashing it inside the back post. Two minutes after the restart, Sam Cronin pulled San Jose even, beating Saunders to a long ball and sliding in to touch it home. Then in the 61st minute, Chris Wondolowski conjured up the winner, breaking away from his marker and deftly redirecting Ramiro Corrales' flick on from a Chávez corner kick.

Robbie Keane sprung Buddle loose on the left wing, and the return cross bounced off two Quakes defenders and dropped down for Keane to jam home at the edge of the six-yard box.  San Jose responded in the 61st minute with a beautiful 25-yard free kick from Marvin Chavez, who bent his effort from the left over the wall and tucked it just inside the near post.  The Galaxy nosed back in front in the 69th minute when Edson Buddle outjumped Víctor Bernárdez to knock home a relatively simple header off Sean Franklin’s deep right-wing cross.  But the Quakes tied things up with another set-piece strike in the 73rd minute. Chávez delivered a corner into a teeming Galaxy box, where Chris Wondolowski stooped to flick home a header past goalkeeper Josh Saunders.

In those games, LA have outscored their opponents 9-3 with each of the last four games being played at The Home Depot Center. The five-game winning streak matches the longest postseason winning streak in club history. LA also won five straight playoff games in 2002 and 2003, winning their final four games in 2002 en route to their first MLS Cup title before beating San Jose 2-0 in the first leg of their Conference Semifinal Series. The only team in MLS history to win more than five straight playoff games was Bruce Arena’s D.C. United squad that won 13 straight playoff games during the 1996, ‘97 and ‘98 playoffs. A COMMON OCCURENCE: The one common occurrence in all five of those games was an assist by David Beckham. Beckham is the first player in MLS history to record an assist in five straight playoff games having set up a goal in all four of LA’s playoff games last season. The Galaxy midfielder now ranks third in club history with eight postseason assists with those coming in his last nine playoff games dating back to MLS Cup 2009. His eight postseason assists are the 10th most in MLS history, six fewer than the league record holder Mauricio Cienfuegos, who had 14 assists in 35 career playoff games. Beckham has recorded at least one assist in seven of his 12 career playoff games, with LA going 6-0-1 in those matches compared to 3-1-1 when he does not get an assist. During the regular season, LA were 4-3-1 when Beckham had a goal and 3-1-2 when he had a goal. MAGEE CONTINUES POSTSEASON HEROICS: Mike Magee showed once again why he has been considered one of the Galaxy’s postseason heroes over the past four years, scoring a 69th minute equalizer on Thursday against Vancouver. That goal was Magee’s sixth in the postseason since joining LA in 2009 and all six have either tied the score or given his team the lead. Magee’s six playoff goals are the fourth most in club history with only Landon Donovan, Carlos Ruiz and Mauricio Cienfuegos tallying more. Additionally, his six goals since the start of the 2009 MLS Cup Playoffs are second in MLS in that time with only Landon Donovan scoring more with seven. DONOVAN EXTENDS ONE RECORD, TIES ANOTHER: Landon Donovan’s game-winning penalty kick against Vancouver on Thursday night was the 21st playoff goal of his MLS career, giving him five more goals than Carlos Ruiz, who is second with 16 goals, and 13 more than his closest remaining active competitor, Brian Ching, who has eight playoff goals during his MLS career. Eight of Donovan’s 21 goals have been game-winners, including three of the last four dating back to the Conference Semifinal win over New York last year. In addition to the goal being Donovan’s 21st in the playoffs, it was also his 11th playoff goal with the Galaxy, tying him with Ruiz for the most in club history. Donovan is now two games shy of tying Ruiz’s MLS record of six straight postseason games with at least one goal. HOME COOKING: No team has enjoyed a bigger home field advantage in the history of the MLS Cup Playoffs than the LA Galaxy, who are 23-3-1 alltime at home in the postseason, including Thursday’s 2-1 win over Vancouver. Since moving to The Home Depot Center in 2003, the Galaxy are 10-1-1 there in the playoffs, including a 2-2 draw with Chivas USA as the road team in 2009 and the 1-0 win over Houston in MLS Cup 2011 when the stadium was considered a neutral venue Since MLS adopted a form of the current postseason format in 2003, LA are 1-0-0 at home in the Knockout Round, 6-0-0 at home in the Conference Semifinals and 2-1-0 at home in the Conference Championship, outscoring opponents 19-8 in those 10 matches. BATTLING BACK: For just the second time since the start of the 2011 postseason, the Galaxy fell behind on Thursday, conceding a third minute goal to Darren Mattocks before coming back to win 2-1. Prior to that, the last time that the Galaxy had trailed in a playoff game was in the second leg of the Conference Semifinal Series against New York last year when Luke Rodgers scored in the fourth minute to give the Red Bulls a 1-0 lead. Just like against the Whitecaps, Mike Magee tied that game at 1-1 before Landon Donovan sealed the win by converting a penalty kick.

The Galaxy are now 7-8-3 all-time in the playoffs when conceding first, including a 2-1-2 mark since the start of the 2005 playoffs. That record includes a 1-1 draw with San Jose at Spartan Stadium in 2005 when Ned Grabavoy canceled out a first half strike from Brian Ching to give LA a 1-1 draw and a 4-2 series win on aggregate. During the regular season, the Galaxy were 13-4-2 when scoring first, including a 9-3-0 mark at home, compared to just 3-8-4 when conceding the game’s first goal. LA had scored first in each of their last eight league games dating back to August 15 before falling behind against the Whitecaps. MAKING THEIR DEBUTS: Three Galaxy players made their postseason debuts on Thursday night against the Whitecaps with Hector Jimenez and Tommy Meyer each getting the start in defense and Marcelo Sarvas coming on for Jimenez in the 52nd minute. With those three seeing time, 17 of the 30 players on the club’s roster have now played in at least one playoff game during their MLS careers. Of the 11 players that started for LA on Thursday, eight started in MLS Cup 2011 while Edson Buddle had played for the club during the 2009 and 2010 postseasons. However, while there was plenty of experience on the field to start the game, there was considerably less on the bench with Bruce Arena’s seven possible substitutes – Brian Perk, Bryan Gaul, Andrew Boyens, Sarvas, Michael Stephens, Jose Villarreal and Jack McBean – combining for just four playoff appearances heading into the game (two for Boyens in 2008 and two for Stephens last season). Additionally, those seven had combined for just 81 appearances and 41 starts during the regular season with Sarvas and Stephens accounting for 50 appearances and 28 starts. TRIED AND TESTED: Of the 30 player currently on the Galaxy roster, 17 were on the roster at the end of the 2011 season when the club won their third MLS Cup. Additionally, 10 of the 11 players that started LA’s 1-0 win over Houston last November are still on the club. Of the 13 players who are new to the Galaxy roster this season, five were playing college soccer at this time last year and Jose Villarreal was playing in the Galaxy Academy while Marcelo Sarvas and Christian Wilhelmsson were not yet playing in MLS. Three of the remaining five players – Edson Buddle, Andrew Boyens and Pat Noonan – had previously helped teams reach MLS Cup, though none has ever won a championship. WE MEET AGAIN: This will be the fifth time that the Galaxy and Earthquakes meet in the postseason with LA knocking out San Jose in 1996 and 2005 while the Earthquakes beat the Galaxy in MLS Cup 2001 and then again in 2003. The two sides have played eight games in the previous four series with LA having a 4-3-1 record against the Quakes, including a 2-0-0 mark at The Home Depot Center. All-time, LA are 4-0-0 at home in the playoffs against San Jose compared to 0-2-1 on the road and 0-1-0 at a neutral site. GALAXY TO FACE HEREDIANO IN CCL QUARTERFINALS: Thanks to their 3-2 win over Isidro Metapan last week in El Salvador, the LA Galaxy will enter the quarterfinals of the CONCACAF Champions League as the No. 4seed. LA, who went 3-0-1 in their four Group Stage games, will now face CS Herediano of Costa Rica in a two-leg, aggregate goal quarterfinal series starting in Costa Rica in March. Herediano also went 3-0-1 to win Group 2, clinching their quarterfinal berth with a 0-0 draw with Real Salt Lake in the group finale on Tuesday. The Galaxy finished Group 5 play with 12 goals scored compared to just four against. Jack McBean, who also led the team with five goals in the Reserve League, scored a team-best three goals. Juninho and Michael Stephens each scored twice while David Beckham, Robbie Keane, Tommy Meyer and Jose Villarreal each scored once for LA, who also benefitted from an own goal. The Galaxy and Herediano have only met once before, with the Galaxy claiming a 1-0 win thanks to an Edson Buddle goal in the first half of a friendly at The Home Depot Center in June 2009. LA have only faced a Costa Rican team in the Champions League twice, splitting a pair of games against Alajuelense in the Group Stage of the 2011/12 Champions League, winning 2-0 at home before losing 1-0 on the road.

Earthquakes’ Last Game Earthquakes 1, Portland Timbers 1; Oct. 27, 2012; JELD-WEN Field, Portland, Ore. Chris Wondolowski wrote his name in the Major League Soccer record book with his 27th goal in the San Jose Earthquakes 1-1 tie against the Portland Timbers. Wondolowski tied Roy Lassiter, who set the record in 1996 with the Tampa Bay Mutiny, for most goals scored in a single MLS season. The Quakes (19-6-9, 66 pts.) ended their best regular season in team history with a nine-game unbeaten streak. Wondolowski tied the record on a 24th minute penalty kick following a foul by Timbers goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts on Steven Lenhart. Lenhart latched onto a ball over the top and maneuvered around Ricketts and into the box. Ricketts lunged for the ball and was whistled for a foul, sending Wondolowski to the spot. He buried the penalty kick to the lower left corner to equal Lassiter’s record and etch his name in the record book. Wondolowski had a golden chance to break the record in the 66th minute on a back post header. Shea Salinas found the Danville native with a pinpoint cross, but Wondolowski’s header went just wide of the post. Bright Dike scored the equalizer for the Timbers in the 67th minute after a turnover just outside the Quakes penalty box. Dike recovered the loose ball and fired a low shot, but Quakes goalkeeper Jon Busch made a diving save. However, the rebound fell directly to Dike, and he made no mistake with the second chance, slotting it past Busch for a 1-1 tie. Earthquakes’ Last Game vs. LA Galaxy Earthquakes 2, LA Galaxy 2; Oct. 21, 2012; Buck Shaw Stadium, Santa Clara, Calif. Chris Wondolowski scored the equalizing goal for the San Jose Earthquakes in a 2-2 draw against the LA Galaxy at Buck Shaw Stadium in front of a standing-room-only crowd of 10,744. The goal was Wondolowski’s 26th of the year, moving him to within one of Roy Lassiter’s 16-year-old MLS record for a single season. The Earthquakes’ never-say-die attitude was on full display once again as the home side rallied from one-goal deficits twice in the second half. The Galaxy scored first in the 59th minute as Robbie Keane cleaned up a loose ball in the box for his team-leading 16th goal of the season. Steven Lenhart won a free kick from 25 yards out, giving Marvin Chavez a crack on goal with a free kick. Chavez dipped his shot over the Galaxy wall and past a diving LA goalkeeper for his third goal of 2012. Buddle put the Galaxy back in front in the 69th minute, heading home a Sean Franklin cross for his third goal of the season. Buddle drifted toward the near post and Franklin placed his pass perfectly to allow the target man a free look on goal. That set the stage for another late equalizer from San Jose. Wondolowski got loose on a corner kick in the 73rd minute and powered a header past Galaxy goalkeeper Josh Saunders for his 26th of the season.

OPPONENT INFO LA Galaxy Scouting Report The LA Galaxy (16-12-6, 54 pts.) advanced to the Western Conference Semifinal thanks to a 2-1 win against Vancouver Whitecaps FC on Wednesday at The Home Depot Center. The result sets up what will be the ninth and 10th postseason meetings between San Jose and LA. The Galaxy are 4-3-1 all time against San Jose in the MLS Cup Playoffs with a 13-10 advantage in goal aggregate. The two teams famously met in the 2001 MLS Cup Final with San Jose taking that match 2-1 in overtime. The Galaxy didn’t have much luck against their Northern California neighbors during the 2012 regular season, relinquishing two-goal leads in a pair of losses while also surrendering a pair of one-goal leads in an Oct. 21 draw at Buck Shaw Stadium. The offensive-minded club finished the season with the second-most goals in MLS (59) while conceding 47 times. Robbie Keane led the way with 16 goals and nine assists while Landon Donovan chipped in with nine goals and 14 assists.

San Jose Earthquakes at LA Galaxy, Nov. 4, 2012, 6 p.m. PT been eliminated in the semifinals, and the remaining four fell in the quarterfinals. The Supporters’ Shield represents a history unlike many others in sport. Fans conceptualized the trophy in the early years of Major League Soccer and unveiled it at the inaugural Supporters’ Summit prior to MLS Cup in 1998. Wondolowski Ties MLS Single Season Goals Record Chris Wondolowski’s 24th-minute penalty against the Portland Timbers on Sunday tied Roy Lassiter for the MLS single-season record for goals (27). Wondolowski scored five goals in San Jose’s final three games to match the mark. Wondolowski Wins Second Budweiser Golden Boot Chris Wondolowski won his second career Budweiser Golden Boot on Sunday, outdistancing Real Salt Lake’s Alvaro Saborio by nine goals to secure the honor. The nine-goal margin between Wondolowski and the Saborio is the largest in MLS history. Wondolowski’s 27 goals tied the MLS record for a single season. He also won the Budweiser Golden Boot in 2010, one-upping LA Galaxy striker Edson Buddle with 18. Wondolowski Breaks MLS Single Season Record for Game-Winning Goals Chris Wondolowski didn’t just score a lot of goals in 2012 – he scored a lot of goals that counted. Wondolowski broke the MLS record for game-winning goals by two with 11 on the season. Wondolowski previously held the benchmark with former LA Galaxy striker Carlos Ruiz. San Jose’s striker also had four game-tying goals, meaning 56-percent of his final haul had a direct impact on the outcome of San Jose’s results.

He broke the mark with a hat trick in a 4-1 win against the Colorado Rapids on Oct. 6 and has now found the net 64 times in 106 games in San Jose. Cerritos previously held the mark with 61 goals in 148 games. Mr. October Chris Wondolowski has scored 16 goals in October over the last three years, 11 more than No. 2 on that list.

He notched five in three games to tie Roy Lassiter for the MLS single-season goals record in 2012. 2012 Chris Wondolowski Miletones Chris Wondolowski had one of the best seasons of any player in league history with 27 goals and seven assists. He left his mark in club and league record books in a big way: -Tied MLS record for goals in a single season with 27 -Broke MLS record for game-winning goals in a season with 11 -Won second career Budweiser Golden Boot by nine goals, the widest margin in MLS history -Surpassed Ronald Cerritos on the club’s all-time goals list with 64 -Six multi-goal games were third most in MLS history for a single season, established new club record -First person to win three MLS Player of the Month awards and a favorite to take the award in October -10th player in MLS history to score 20 or more goals in a single season -First player in MLS history to outscore an entire team during the course of a season, tallying 27 times to Chivas USA’s 24 -Involved in 34 Earthquakes goals (27 scored, seven assists), the most by any player in MLS history -Led MLS in shots on goal with 55 -Finished the season second in MLS with a 0.86 goals-per-90-minutes-played rate -Seven assists more than doubled his previous career high Wondolowski, Bernardez, Salinas Earn Club Awards The Earthquakes unveiled their team awards last week during a banquet presented by Franco Uomo, the official fashion designer of the club.

Each award winner received a free tailored suit courtesy of Franco Uomo. Career Year for Son of the Wind Marvin “Hijo del Viento” Chavez more than doubled his previous career high with 13 assists and tacked on three goals while playing in 27 games for San Jose in 2012. His previous best for assists in a year was four in 2011 as a member of FC Dallas. Quakes Linking Up San Jose led MLS in team assists with 74, 12 more than the next-best on the list, the LA Galaxy.

Veteran defender Ramiro Corrales, winger Shea Salinas and forwards Chris Wondolowski and Alan Gordon tied for next on San Jose’s list with seven each. Right back Steven Beitashour led San Jose a year ago with seven. Biggest Turnarounds The Earthquakes improved by 28 points and 11 wins from their 2011 season, one of the best turnarounds in MLS history. The 28-point difference from 2011 to 2012 is fourth on the MLS all-time list, 11 behind the 1999 MetroStars. Meanwhile, the Earthquakes’ 11 additional wins this season rank No. 1 all-time, one-upping the 1999 MetroStars and 2009 New York Red Bulls.


San Jose Earthquakes at LA Galaxy, Nov. 4, 2012, 6 p.m. PT New Club Mark for Points in a Season San Jose’s banner year culminated with the club’s second Supporters’ Shield and a new franchise mark for points in a season. The Earthquakes finished 19-6-9 for 66 points, two better than their previous record of 64 set in 2005. Quakes Tie Club Wins Mark The 4-1 win against the Colorado Rapids on Oct. 6 tied club records for wins (19) in a season.

San Jose eclipsed their previous benchmark on Sept. 2 against Chivas USA with seven games remaining in the regular season. Historical Perspective on San Jose’s 2012 Offensive Output The Earthquakes’ 72 goals during the regular season were third-most scored by a team in league history. The top two teams on the list – LA Galaxy (85) and D.C. United (74) – topped the list in a season that featured a league-wide average of 3.57 goals per game. The MLS average in 2012 was 2.64 goals per game.

Multi-Goal Milestone The Earthquakes notched their 21st multi-goal game of the season in the club’s 2-2 draw against the LA Galaxy on Oct. 21, moving them ahead of the 2000 Chicago Fire and 2000 and 2005 MetroStars for the most multi-goal games in a single season since 2000. More on Multi-Goal Games The Earthquakes scored three or more goals 11 times in 2012, breaking the previous club record of eight from 2001. Additionally, Chris Wondolowski’s hat trick against Colorado on Oct. 6 was his sixth multi-goal game of the season, obliterating the previous club record of three by Ronald Cerritos (2001) and Landon Donovan (2003). Wondolowski also holds the club record for career multi-goal games with 11, three more than the next on the list.

Additionally, those three have accounted for more goals (50) than every MLS team except for the LA Galaxy (59), New York Red Bulls (57), D.C. United (53) and Seattle Sounders FC (51). Their haul combined is the most by three players in club history, 17 more than the previous San Jose benchmark set in 1996.

Late Goals in Bunches The “Goonies” closed their campaign well ahead of all other MLS teams in late-game goals. San Jose scored 40 over the final 30 minutes, 12 more than No. 2 on that list, the LA Galaxy. The Earthquakes also paced the league with a club-record 22 strikes over the final 15 minutes, five ahead of the Houston Dynamo. San Jose also scored an MLS record eight second-half stoppage-time goals in 2012 – those added-time goals earned the Earthquakes an additional 13 points in the table. Rope-a-Dope The Quakes’ penchant for late-game heroics and second-half comebacks resulted in a league-best 4-4-6 record when conceding first. Their .500 mark was well ahead of the next-closest on the list, the New York Red Bulls with a .421 winning percentage. Hernandez Moving Up Club Record Book Earthquakes center back Jason Hernandez is No. 8 in both starts (122) and minutes played (10,847) in club history. He is also No. 9 on the club’s all-time appearance list with 123. Hernandez made his 100th career start in San Jose against Real Salt Lake in front of a home crowd at Buck Shaw Stadium on April 21. Busch Among MLS Career Leaders With a current mark of .740, Earthquakes goalkeeper Jon Busch is second on Major League Soccer’s all-time chart in career saves percentage. He trails only Brad Friedel, currently of Tottenham Hotspur of the English Premier League, who produced a mark of .756 over 38 games with the Columbus Crew in 1996-97. Busch picked up the 67th clean sheet of his 12-year MLS career on Sept.15 at Chivas USA, sixth-most among MLS’ all-time leaders. Busch has posted 21 shutouts in his three seasons as the starter in San Jose, to go along with his 21 during three seasons (2007-09) with the Chicago Fire, and 25 in five seasons (2002-06) with the Columbus Crew. Busch is also No. 8 all-time in saves in MLS history with 878 over his career. Yallop No. 4 on MLS Wins List Eighth-year Earthquakes head coach Frank Yallop is tied for No. 4 overall on the MLS regular-season coaching wins chart at 114. He became just the sixth manager in MLS history to reach the 100-win milestone with a 3-1 home victory over Real Salt Lake on April 21. He ranks behind Sigi Schmid (172), Bruce Arena (144) and Bob Bradley (124) and is tied with former pupil Dominic Kinnear (114). Yallop in the MLS Cup Playoffs Frank Yallop is no stranger to the MLS Cup Playoffs. He is tied for No. 6 on the all-time postseason wins list with nine. LA Galaxy head coach Bruce Arena sits atop the table with 22 in 10 seasons between D.C. United, New York and LA. Yallop has coached 15 MLS Cup Playoff games – all with San Jose – and is 9-6-0 during that stretch. He won MLS Cups with the Earthquakes in 2001 and 2003. Corrales in Exclusive 200-Start Club Veteran defender and team captain Ramiro Corrales made the 200th start of his San Jose career against the Houston Dynamo on March 17. He thus became the 19th player in league history to draw 200 starts for one club.

San Jose Earthquakes at LA Galaxy, Nov. 4, 2012, 6 p.m. PT FLASHBACK Earthquakes Win MLS Cup Championship With 2-1 OT Victory Over Galaxy DeRosario Scores Game-Winning Goal in Overtime to Give Quakes Championship; Quakes Go from Worst-to-First to Win MLS Cup Columbus, OH (October 21, 2001) – San Jose Earthquakes forward Dwayne DeRosario curled a shot into the upper right corner of the Los Angeles Galaxy’s goal six minutes into overtime to give the Earthquakes a 2-1 win over the Galaxy in the 2001 MLS Cup in front of 21,626 fans at Crew Stadium in Columbus, OH. With the win, the Earthquakes, who finished the 2000 MLS season with a league-low 29 points, became the first team in MLS history to go from worst-to-first. Quakes 19-year-old sensation Landon Donovan scored the first goal for the Quakes to give him a league-leading five for the playoffs. Overall the Quakes scored 12 goals in their run to the championship and conceded only three. Ramiro Corrales had the first chance for the Earthquakes in the seventh minute, getting his head on a corner kick from Richard Mulrooney. Mulrooney sent his corner into the middle of the 18-yard box and Corrales got to the ball first, but his header went over the crossbar. 2001 ACE Comeback Player of the Year Troy Dayak made a diving block to prevent a Galaxy goal in the 14th minute. Sasha Victorine received a cross on the back post and touched it towards the center of the goal to Mauricio Cienfuegos. Cienfuegos quickly fired a low shot at the Quakes’ goal, but Dayak slid in to deflect the ball over the end-line for a corner kick. Galaxy forward Luis Hernandez got the Galaxy on the scoreboard first with a goal in the 21st minute. Greg Vanney got a ball from Galaxy goalkeeper Kevin Hartman and sent a long ball over the top of the Quakes defense. Hernandez ran onto the pass and volleyed a right-footed shot past Quakes goalkeeper Joe Cannon for a 1-0 lead. Cannon made a strong stop in the 35th minute to keep the Quakes within a goal. Cienfuegos moved the ball out to the left to Cobi Jones. Jones took a touch inside and hit a low shot to the near post that Cannon gathered in diving to his right. Donovan equalized for San Jose with a right-footed blast from 12 yards out in the 43rd minute. Ian Russell worked the ball on the right wing before finding Mulrooney, who had made a run to the right corner. Mulrooney curled in a one-touch cross to the middle of the penalty box. Donovan got free from his defender and hit a volley into the upper corner at the near post. The Quakes nearly caught a break in first half injury time as Ezra Hendrickson accidentally headed a ball at his own goal. Donovan sent a cross in looking for Cerritos, but Hendrickson got to the ball first. His header ended up going towards the Galaxy goal, forcing Hartman to make a diving stop to keep the game even. Ronnie Ekelund had a long-range effort in the opening two minutes of the second half, but Hartman was there to make the save. Ekelund received the ball 25-yards from goal and ripped a volley that Hartman knocked down and then controlled to keep the score at 11. 2001 MLS Defender of the Year Jeff Agoos curled a free kick that beat Hartman, but hit off the far post. The ball bounced off the bar and hit Galaxy defender Paul Caligiuri in the chest and appeared headed towards the goal. Hartman scrambled back and cleared the ball off the line. Ronald Cerritos then volleyed the rebound high. Donovan got free in the front of the goal in the 53rd minute off of a corner kick, but his right-footed shot skidded wide. Mulrooney served the corner kick to the penalty spot for Cerritos, who headed the ball down to Donovan in front of the goal. Donovan turned and shot low, but his shot missed the post. Russell created an opportunity for Cerritos three minutes later, but his volley sailed wide of the near post. Russell cut down the right wing and played a cross to the middle that was headed back towards Cerritos. Cerritos quickly fired a turnaround volley that missed the near post by two feet. DeRosario won the championship for the San Jose with a golden goal in the sixth minute of overtime. Ekelund sent a long ball to DeRosario on the left wing that gave DeRosario a one-on-one opportunity with Galaxy defender Danny Califf. DeRosario faked to the near post and then broke towards the middle before firing a shot far post that beat Hartman and found the back of the net. Notes: -Quakes captain Jeff Agoos became the only player in MLS history to play in five MLS Cups on Sunday against the Galaxy. -The Earthquakes won for the first time in 2001when allowing the first goal on Sunday against the Galaxy. The Quakes had been 0-8-2 when allowing the first goal prior to Sunday’s MLS Cup. -The Quakes finished the season 13-2-4 with Mulrooney and Ronnie Ekelund in the starting lineup in midfield. -The Earthquakes set a season-high with 13 corner kicks. -Earthquakes midfielder Ramiro Corrales wore injured midfielder Manny Lagos’ jersey underneath his jersey in Sunday’s match.

-Earthquakes Drop First Game of MLS Cup Playoffs 2-0 to the Los Angeles Galaxy On the Road Quakes Concede Two Second-Half Goals; Need Two-Goal Win in Home Leg on Sunday Carson, Calif. (Saturday, November 1, 2003) — The San Jose Earthquakes fell 2-0 in the away leg of their Western Conference Semifinal home-and-home series against the Los Angeles Galaxy. The Galaxy scored two goals just three minutes apart in the second half to earn the victory. The Earthquakes return home next to take on the Galaxy in the second leg of the series needing to win by two goals to force a 30-minute golden goal overtime. The match will be played on Sunday, November 9 at Spartan Stadium at 6:00 p.m. PT. In the 10th minute the Earthquakes broke through with their best opportunity in the early stages of the match. Dwayne De Rosario broke into the Galaxy penalty box on the right wing and sent a low cross to Landon Donovan. Donovan one-timed a left-footed shot from 15 yards out, but it sailed wide of the goal. San Jose was dealt some bad luck in the 19th minute when De Rosario strained his left hamstring and was forced to come out of the match. Rodrigo Faria subbed in for the Canadian international in the 21st minute. The Galaxy had an opportunity of its own in the 22nd minute when Alejandro Moreno battled with two Quakes defenders to muscle a shot just over the bar. Donovan displayed his speed in creating a chance for the Quakes in the 29th minute. Ramiro Corrales recovered the ball in the Quakes half and threaded a ball through for Donovan, who got past Tyrone Marshall and Danny Califf at midfield. He then found Corrales at the top of the 18-yard box for a one-time volley that was deflected wide by the Galaxy defense. Ian Russell had one final effort for the Quakes in the final minutes of the first half. Russell received a ball on the left wing and eluded Galaxy midfielder Arturo Torres before firing a hard shot that went over the net. The teams entered the halftime break with San Jose holding a 7-3 advantage in shots. Eleven minutes into the second half, Faria nearly put the visiting Quakes into the lead. Richard Mulrooney found Corrales with a short free kick and Corrales tipped the ball to Russell. Russell one-timed a cross that found Faria, who headed wide. The Galaxy broke the deadlock in the 59th minute with a goal by Sasha Victorine. A cross by Torres from the right wing was deflected by the Quakes defense and the ball found Victorine on the back post and he pushed it past Quakes goalkeeper Pat Onstad at the near post.


San Jose Earthquakes at LA Galaxy, Nov. 4, 2012, 6 p.m. PT Three minutes later Carlos Ruiz put the Galaxy up by two goals with a shot to the near post past Onstad. Ruiz received the ball at the edge of the 18-yard box and shook off two defenders before slotting the ball into the back of the net. The Quakes got some more bad news when Corrales strained his right hamstring and had to leave the game in the 72nd minute. Craig Waibel entered the game for Corrales. The Earthquakes host the home leg of the semifinal series next Sunday, November 9 at 6:00 p.m. PT at Spartan Stadium. The first 7,500 fans will receive an Earthquakes Rally Towel, presented by Orchard Supply Hardware. Notes: -With their loss to the Galaxy on Saturday night, the Quakes are now 2-3 all-time against Los Angeles in the playoffs. -Dwayne De Rosario and Ramiro Corrales both left the match with hamstring injuries during the game. Their status for the home leg of the series has not yet been determined. -If the Earthquakes win the game next week by two goals, the teams would go immediately into a 30-minute golden goal overtime. If the teams remain deadlocked after overtime, penalty kicks would decide the series. A three-goal win by the Quakes would put them into the Western Conference Finals. Quotes: Frank Yallop, on game: “I thought that we performed well and that we stifled their attack pretty well until the goal. The game is all about scoring and they took their chances when they had them. We have to be stronger in front of goal and finish the chances that we create.” Yallop, on next week: “If we were down three I would be more worried, but at least being down two we have a chance. If we can score early then we are right back in the series. We have to press them right from the start of the game score goals. I believe in this team and they believe in each other, so I think we can come back next week and win the series.” Brian Mullan, looking ahead to next week: “Obviously we need to get back the two goals next week and they will be packing it in. We have to get out there and score and we know we can. We have been able to score at home. The bounces went their way tonight. Hopefully they will go our way next week.” Jeff Agoos, on game: “I thought for the most part it was an even game. There were two times where we had opportunities to clear the ball and we didn’t. To be a championship team, you need to make the little plays and tonight we did not make them.” Landon Donovan, on game: “We didn’t keep the ball well and we didn’t defend well at times. I don’t think that we got the breaks tonight and they did. That is what happens when you don’t do the little things. That is the way it has been going lately. We need to find a way to turn it around.”

San Jose Earthquakes at LA Galaxy, Nov. 4, 2012, 6 p.m. PT Quakes Advance To Western Conference Final With Thrilling 5-2 Victory over Los Angeles Trailing 4-0 On Aggregate Goals, Quakes Explode For Five Goals to Win Series 5-4 Earthquakes Host Kansas City In Western Conference Final Nov. 15 at 7:00 p.m. San Jose, Calif. (Sunday, November 9, 2003) — The San Jose Earthquakes exploded into the Major League Soccer Western Conference Final with a thrilling 5-2 overtime victory over the Los Angeles Galaxy on Saturday night at Spartan Stadium on a Rodrigo Faria goal six minutes into overtime. Already entering the game trailing the home-and-home total goal series 2-0 following a two-goal loss in Los Angeles last Saturday, the Quakes found themselves facing a 4-0 aggregate goal deficit after the Galaxy scored twice in the first 13 minutes on Sunday. The Earthquakes stormed back, scoring five straight goals, including the series-tying header in the final minute of regulation by Chris Roner before Faria provided the series-winner. The Galaxy took a 1-0 lead and what seemed to be a commanding 3-0 aggregate goal lead in the series when Carlos Ruiz placed a header past San Jose goalkeeper Pat Onstad in the seventh minute. Ruiz got on the end of a Galaxy free kick from the left side, heading it down and to the left of a diving Onstad. The Quakes fell into a deeper hole in the 13th minute when Alejandro Moreno broke free down the right sideline and sent a pass into the middle of the field to an on-rushing Peter Vagenas. Vagenas dribbled past the Quakes defense and into the box, where his shot beat Onstad to the right for a 2-0 lead and a 4-0 total goal lead in the series. The Quakes got on the board in the 21st minute when Jeff Agoos buried a free kick from 20 yards in front of the Los Angeles goal. Following a Tyrone Marshall foul on Landon Donovan, Ronnie Ekelund tapped the ball forward to Agoos, who curled the ball around the Galaxy wall and into the upper left corner of the goal to cut the L.A. lead to 2-1. Just two minutes later the Earthquakes nearly evened the match when Manny Lagos ran onto a ball that was popped over the Los Angeles defense by Donovan. Lagos got to the ball at the six-yard box and slid to make contact with it, but Kevin Hartman was able to make an incredible save, knocking the ball free with his foot. The Quakes tied the game and drew to 4-2 on aggregate goals in the series in the 35th minute on a goal by Donovan. Donovan deflected a Galaxy free kick at midfield and Mulrooney picked up the loose ball and sent it over the defense. Jamil Walker was able to get to the ball first and slipped a pass forward to a sprinting Donovan before being taken down by Hartman, the last Galaxy defender. Donovan was able to reach the ball and send a shot into the open net to tie the game, 2-2. The Quakes seized a 3-2 lead in the game and drew within 4-3 in the series on a powerful header by Walker in the 50th minute. Vagenas fouled Mulrooney at the right corner of the Galaxy penalty box, setting up a free kick. Mulrooney took a quick free kick, launching the ball into the middle of the L.A. six-yard box, where Walker elevated over the defense and headed the ball down and to the left of Hartman. Onstad made two amazing saves in the 58th minute following a cross into the Quakes penalty box off a free kick by Hong Myung-Bo. Ruiz headed the ball toward the net, but Onstad dove to his left to block the ball. The rebound went to the Galaxy’s Danny Califf right in front of the net, but while Onstad was still on the ground he was able to knock the shot away. Needing just one goal to even the total goal series, the Earthquakes continued to press forward and attack Los Angeles. San Jose was rewarded in the final minute of regulation when substitute Chris Roner, who had just entered the game a minute before, rose above the Galaxy defense in the six yard box and headed a perfect Richard Mulrooney cross from the right side down and into the goal. The goal put the Quakes ahead 4-2 in the game and evened the series on total goals, forcing overtime and sending the raucous crowd at Spartan Stadium into a frenzy. The Quakes began the 30-minute golden goal overtime period effectively playing down a man, as captain Jeff Agoos could barely run as he suffered from back spasms. Faria provided the series-winning goal just six minutes into the overtime period when substitute Ian Russell passed off to Donovan at midfield. Donovan carried the ball into the Galaxy end of the field before sending a perfect pass to an on-rushing Faria on the right side of the L.A. penalty area. Faria controlled the ball, and buried a shot on the ground to the far post past a diving Hartman.

San Jose Earthquakes at LA Galaxy, Nov. 4, 2012, 6 p.m. PT Quotes: Earthquakes head coach Frank Yallop, on game: “That was probably the most amazing game that I have ever been involved with and the best MLS game I have ever seen. To come back from 4-0 down is just mind boggling.” Earthquakes forward Rodrigo Faria, on game: “Since I got here I have been wanting to score and I have had opportunities, but I have been struggling. I have kept working hard, because I felt that something special was coming, and tonight it did.” Faria, on goal: “It was something special. I just can’t describe the feeling. I came on just wanting to get the game-tying goal, and thank God that Chris [Roner] got that one. In overtime it looked like we were in trouble when Jeff [Agoos] went down, but as soon as I saw Ian [Russell] give the ball to Landon I made a run into the middle. I knew they were tired, and when I got the ball I just saw the far post open and knew I could get it past Kevin [Hartman].” Landon Donovan, on crowd: “The crowd was phenomenal tonight. It was louder than I have ever heard, even louder than the World Cup games. I have never been a part of a game that exciting. I almost wish that I had bought a ticket for it and could watch it from the stands.” Jamil Walker, on goal: “The cross was right there for me. I just was able to get there and put my head on it. It was a perfect cross, and once we got the goals, we felt that we had the momentum.” Major League Soccer; MLS Cup Playoffs San Jose Earthquakes 5, Los Angeles Galaxy 2 San Jose, Calif.; Spartan Stadium; Attendance: 14,145 1 2 2
