SAN JOSE EARTHQUAKES vs CHIVAS USA BUCK SHAW STADIUM, Santa Clara, Calif. May 13, 2012 (WEEK 10, MLS Game #96) 4 p.m. PT (Galavisión; CSN-CA) A key meeting of Western Conference clubs is ahead on Sunday afternoon as the San Jose Earthquakes play host to Chivas USA at Buck Shaw Stadium. The Earthquakes fell out of top spot in the West and the MLS overall table, after their dramatic 2-1 loss at Vancouver last weekend. Chivas USA are still looking for a first home point this season, losing for a fifth time at The Home Depot Center in an equally dramatic 2-1 loss to the Chicago Fire. REFEREE: Ricardo Salazar.

Chivas USA won both meetings between the teams a year ago.  Coaches record: Frank Yallop vs. CHV: P3 W1 L0 D2 … Robin Fraser vs. SJ: P2 W2 L0 D0 SAN JOSE EARTHQUAKES The San Jose Earthquakes saw their seven-game unbeaten streak come to an end in dramatic fashion, falling to a stoppage-time goal in a 2-1 defeat by Vancouver Whitecaps FC on Saturday evening at BC Place. The Quakes are now tied for second place in the Western Conference with 22 points from 10 games. LAST MATCH  San Jose took the lead after just 15 minutes. Marvin Chavez found an unmarked Chris Wondolowski lurking at the far post and put it on a platter for the league's leading scorer to head home. Vancouver goalkeeper Joe Cannon scrambled across but could only push the ball into the side netting.  Whitecaps FC had an answer shortly before halftime, as Gershon Koffie used his head to level the score from a free kick generated by Omar Salgado down the left side. Camilo stepped up to take the set piece, whipping in a ball which Koffie met well for the 41st-minute equalizer.  The game’s decisive moment came in the fourth minute of stoppage time. Eric Hassli found himself alone on the left edge of the area and powered a low strike which Busch managed to get a hand on, before squeaking through and rebounding off the post and finding the back of the net.  Earthquakes head coach Frank Yallop made two changes to the team that rolled to a 5-3 win against D.C. United at Buck Shaw Stadium. Sam Cronin and Rafael Baca came back into the team for Khari Stephenson and Tressor Moreno.  SAN JOSE EARTHQUAKES (4-4-2): Jon Busch - Steven Beitashour, Jason Hernandez (Ike Opara 45), Justin Morrow, Ramiro Corrales - Marvin Chavez (Tressor Moreno 75), Sam Cronin, Rafael Baca, Simon Dawkins (Khari Stephenson 63) - Chris Wondolowski, Steven Lenhart. TEAM NEWS  The Quakes lost for the first time this season after scoring the first goal, which they had done in five games previously.

“Both teams had chances. I think Vancouver played better in the second half, but we had some good chances to score as well, so that’s what you got to look at,” said Earthquakes head coach Frank Yallop. “You have to look at the opportunities we had in front of the goal, usually a little cleaner and crisper, but you can’t go and attack and score well against teams in our league, it doesn’t work that way.” “It’s not been like us this year; we have been very strong mentally late in games,”Yallop said. “We’ve done a good job of making sure we don’t do that, but tonight was different.” Over his last 34 games (the current length of an MLS season), Chris Wondolowski has scored 25 goals. That would be the fourth-largest single-season total in league history (the record is 27, by Tampa Bay’s Roy Lassiter in the league’s inaugural season). Wondolowski now has a goal or an assist in eight consecutive games, three games shy of the all-time MLS record set by Lassiter in 1998 with D.C. United. “My goal means nothing with the loss. It was just unfortunate we let in two goals in the last five minutes of each half and that'll come back and bite you. We've got to stay a little bit mentally stronger,” said Wondolowski. The Quakes were held to one goal or less for the first time since a 1-0 win against Seattle on March 31. “I honestly don't think we played our game that well. I don't think we played a well-rounded game,” said Wondolowski. “Our possession was lacking, our offensive strikes were lacking and defensively. Compared to them, I thought they did well but I think it's more on us that we lost.” The Quakes will be forced into at least one lineup change, after Marvin Chávez suffered a strained left hamstring that will put him out for an expected 2-4 weeks. “We’ll be OK,” Yallop said. “Simon [Dawkins] is good, Rafa [Baca] is good, Tressor [Moreno] is good. It’s a shame not having Shea [Salinas] available, [since] he’s kind of a direct replacement, with his speed and the way he plays. If he was fit now, it’d be good. We’ll see how Marvin gets on. I don’t think he’s out too long. Hopefully, we won’t miss him.” The loss of Chavez and Salinas take away much of the pace the club has on the flanks. “You get some breathing room when you break away from people,” Yallop said. “I think that was an important thing we addressed. Yeah, we’re going to miss those guys, but we’ll soldier on and make sure we do the right things to win games while they’re not there.”

CHIVAS USA Chivas USA saw their losing skid at home to open the 2012 season continued in cruel fashion, the Chicago Fire getting a goal in stoppage time for a 2-1 come-from-behind win on Friday evening at The Home Depot Center. Chivas USA are in eighth place in the Western Conference with 9 points from 9 games. LAST MATCH  Chivas USA broke their scoring duck at The Home Depot Center in the 23rd minute after Chicago defender Austin Berry brought down Alejandro Moreno in the box, giving Chivas a penalty kick. Juan Pablo Ángel stepped up to the spot and buried his chance for the club’s first home goal the season.  Berry got his redemption just two minutes later. From a throw-in, a Chivas defender cleared the ball out to Sebastian Grazzini, who launched a rainbow pass over the Chivas defense that the rookie defender redirected into the corner from close range.  As the match seemed destined for a draw, Marco Pappa and Federico Puppo played a series of one-twos out of midfield, with Pappa eventually haring forward. From just beyond the restraining arc, Pappa lashed home a low shot that curled past Chivas goalkeeper Dan Kennedy inside the right post for the game-winner, four minutes into stoppage time.  Chivas USA head coach Robin Fraser made three changes to the team that dropped a 4-0 decision to the Colorado Rapids at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park. John Valencia came into the back four for Ante Jazic, and Alejandro Moreno and Jorge Villafana came into the midfield for Paolo Cardozo and Laurent Courtois.  CHIVAS USA (4-4-2): Dan Kennedy - James Riley, John Valencia, Rauwshan McKenzie, Heath Pearce - Miller Bolanos (Ryan Smith 66), Oswaldo Minda, Nick LaBrocca, Jorge Villafana (Michael Lahoud 81) - Alejandro Moreno, Juan Pablo Angel (Jose Correa 70). TEAM NEWS  Chivas fell to a fifth consecutive defeat at home to start the season; they and Toronto FC have each opened this season with five home defeats in a row. Dating back to last season, Chivas have lost six home games in a row; the MLS record is eight home losses in a row, set by the New England Revolution from May 16-July 29, 1998.  “This is obviously not the scenario we were looking for. We need to make sure that we keep our heads high and we turn this around somehow,” said Juan Pablo Ángel. “At the end of the day, we are in it together, for better or worse, and we have to make sure that we get out of this as soon as possible.”  After running out his side with a lone striker for a number of matches, Fraser partnered Ángel with Alejandro Moreno up top.

“We need to look at different ways to go about doing it if the way that we’re doing it isn’t getting results," he said. "For us, it was a look at matching up against the way they play out of a diamond and ironically, they came in matched up playing out of a 4-3-3. But we need to look at things because, for sure, we couldn’t keep doing the same things that we’re doing, so for us it was an opportunity to try a different look.” The Ángel spot kick was the first penalty for Chivas since Aug. 7, 2010, and snapped a 382-minute goalless drought at The Home Depot Center. For Ángel, it was his first goal of the season, in his fourth appearance of the season, after missing five matches with a concussion. Ángel scored seven goals in nine games last season after coming across The Home Depot Center from the LA Galaxy. “I was really happy to score a goal, but very disappointed about the final outcome of the game,” Ángel said. “I think we played well for long periods of time, but at the end I’m disappointed that they found that goal in the last minute.” There was also concern when Ángel had a clash of heads with Fire defender Gonzalo Segares in the second half. “So far, I feel all right, I just have to make sure coming out of a concussion that everything is fine,” Ángel said. “It was a knock and if you see the replay, it was just a weird incident, but right now it’s hard to assess, but hopefully it’s just a simple knock.” José Erick Correa made his Chivas and MLS debut, coming on for the final 20 minutes in place of Ángel. “He had a bright few seconds of the game,” said Fraser. “But after that, we really didn’t do a whole lot in providing the forwards with service so it was difficult to assess him after that.” “It’s more of an up and down soccer, there isn’t as much ball control, it’s a type of soccer that is little more complicated, but I feel that with time I will adapt to the group, and will do things as best as I can so I can contribute well,” said Correa. John Valencia made his first start in MLS, coming in central defense, and moving Heath Pearce to left back in place of Ante Jazic. “Certainly, we felt like it was a bit of a luxury to have a U.S. national team left back, a Canadian national team left back and you look for opportunities to get as many guys as you can opportunities to play,” said Fraser. “We feel like we have some good left backs and we’re going to make some changes, it’s not a difficult switch to make given the caliber of the left backs. It was just an opportunity to see John play and opportunity to see Heath play at left back.”

Bold – Home Game *US Open Cup **International Friendly % Match played at AT&T Park # Match played at Stanford Stadium

Last Game Earthquakes 1, Vancouver Whitecaps FC 2; May 5, 2012; BC Place; Vancouver, British Columbia A goal by host Whitecaps FC on essentially the final movement of the match meant a 2-1 setback for the first-place San Jose Earthquakes at BC Place in Vancouver last Saturday. French striker Eric Hassli’s first goal of 2012 just as the last of four stoppage-time minutes was expiring in the second half gave the ‘Caps all three points in the Western Conference clash. Fellow second-half substitute Davide Chiumiento’s through ball sent Hassli free toward goal, having beaten the offside trap. Jon Busch actually got a hand to his low, right-footed shot from the left diagonal, with the ball even pinging off the far post before ultimately settling into the net. The Quakes, unbeaten in a league-best seven straight at the start of the day, opened the scoring with another Chris Wondolowski header at the back post off a pin-point left-footed cross from the right side by Marvin Chavez in the 15th minute. The ‘Caps equalized through a header of their own as Gershon Koffie banged home a Camilo free kick from close range in the 40th minute. Busch finished the match with five saves, equaling his season high. Vancouver returned the favor in leveling the three-game season series at one apiece, as the Quakes had posted a come-from-behind victory themselves at Buck Shaw Stadium back on April 7, overturning a 1-0 deficit early in the second half for an emphatic 3-1 victory. The teams meet one final time for the 2012 season at BC Place on July 22. Last Game vs. Chivas USA Earthquakes 0, Chivas USA 2; July 6, 2011; The Home Depot Center; Carson, Calif. In the most recent meeting between these teams, Chivas USA posted a 2-0 shutout victory at home inside The Home Depot Center last July 6, completing the two-game season sweep of the Earthquakes. The Goats got a pair of second-half goals by Ben Zemanski in the 64th minute and fellow midfielder Nick LaBrocca in the 84th. Zemanski’s was a bending, long-range strike from 30 yards after coming on as a substitute just six minutes prior. Jon Busch wound up with six saves for San Jose, while counterpart Dan Kennedy made three stops in notching the clean sheet for Chivas USA.

MISCELLANEOUS NOTES Quakes Atop the Western Conference The San Jose Earthquakes (7-2-1) share the top spot in the MLS Western Conference with Real Salt Lake (7-3-1), equal on 22 points still with one game in hand. Seattle Sounders FC is third at 19 points from a 6-1-1 start with two games in hand over the Quakes. San Jose and RSL also lead the race for the 2012 MLS Supporters’ Shield, as Sporting Kansas City (7-2-0, 21 pts.) suffered a 2-0 home defeat to expansion side Montreal on Saturday. Real Salt Lake and Seattle are both in midweek action at the Chicago Fire and FC Dallas, respectively, on Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. PT, before facing off in Seattle on Saturday (7 p.m. PT). Goals Galore San Jose leads MLS with 21 goals scored, with D.C. United (20) and the New York Red Bulls (19) of the Eastern Conference right behind. Through 10 matches, the Quakes are already past the halfway mark to their 34-game 2011 total of 40 goals. San Jose scored just 12 times over its first 10 matches in 2011. The club record for single-season scoring is 55 from the 1997 campaign. That year, San Jose had 14 goals over its first 10 games. San Jose’s +10 goal differential (21-11) is also the best in MLS, with Western rival Seattle Sounders FC at +8 (11-3). Quakes Linking Up Through Week 9 of the MLS season, San Jose paces the entire league with 24 assists. Steven Beitashour’s assist on the 69th-minute game-winner against D.C. United gave the third-year right back a team-leading five for 2012. Three have come from his off, left foot, and two from his natural right. He is tied for third in MLS. Beitashour, who led the team with seven helpers a year ago, now has 12 assists in his last 27 appearances. Marvin Chavez is fifth in MLS with four assists, while fellow newcomer Tressor Moreno has three. Wondolowski Named MLS Player of the Week Chris Wondolowski was voted by the North American Soccer Reporters (NASR) on Monday as the MLS Player of the Week for Week 9 after scoring three goals in two matches to move atop the Budweiser Golden Boot standings with 11 on the year. Wondolowski followed up strike partner Steven Lenhart’s Player of the Week honor for the previous week. He now has three weekly MLS awards for his career. Race for the Budweiser Golden Boot Chris Wondolowski begins the week alone in first-place in the 2012 Budweiser Golden Boot race with 11 goals through 10 games. Thierry Henry of the New York Red Bulls is second at nine goals, with the French striker forced to miss his team’s 1-0 victory at the LA Galaxy on Saturday through injury. Henry’s strike partner, Kenny Cooper (7), and the D.C. United forward tandem of Maicon Santos (6) and Chris Pontius (5), round out the top five on the leaderboard. Buck Shaw Success The Earthquakes have back-to-back games inside Buck Shaw Stadium for the first time this season, as a May 19 match-up with Columbus (7:30 p.m.) follows Sunday’s nationally-televised date with Chivas USA (4 p.m.). San Jose is a perfect 4-0-0 at Buck Shaw thus far on the year, outscoring opponents by a count of 12-5. The Quakes are undefeated at Buck Shaw through their last seven (6-0-1) dating back to 2011, and had a club-record streak of eight straight sellouts at the venue snapped on April 21. This mini-homestand will take San Jose into its season-long four-game road stretch through the month of June, beginning with the season’s first California Clasico at The Home Depot Center on May 23, and leading up to the highly-anticipated June 30 clash with the LA Galaxy at Stanford Stadium. Quakes Striking Early, Scoring Late The Earthquakes have tallied four goals in the first 15 minutes of games this year, with three of them coming on the road. The latest was a Chris Wondolowski header to open the scoring in the 15th minute in Vancouver on Saturday. The other early strikes were vs. New England on March 10 (Wondolowski, 15th), at Toronto FC on March 24 (Wondolowski, 9th) and at New York on April 14 (Rafael Baca, 14th). San Jose has also found the back of opposing nets five times within the final 15 minutes of matches in 2012. Those goals have all come in the last six contests, vs. Vancouver on April 7 (Wondolowski, 78th), vs. Real Salt Lake on April 21 (Simon Dawkins, 92+; Wondolowski, 93+) and at Philadelphia on April 28 (Steven Lenhart, 76th; Lenhart, 93+). Unbeaten Stretch Snapped in Vancouver The Earthquakes took the longest unbeaten streak in MLS into Vancouver last weekend, but had it snapped at seven matches following a last-gasp 2-1 defeat. San Jose had gone 6-0-1 since its first loss of the year on March 17. It was the Quakes’ longest undefeated stretch since a nine-game run in 2008 from July 12-Sept. 13. San Jose was just 4-0-5 during that period, however, for 17 points out of 27, whereas they collected 19 points from 21 during this stretch. The Quakes last had this successful a seven-game period in 2005, in the middle of their club-record 14-game unbeaten streak (11-0-3). From Aug. 27-Oct. 1 that year, San Jose went an identical 6-0-1. Yallop No. 5 on MLS Wins List With his side’s 5-3 home win over D.C. United on May 2, eighth-year Earthquakes head coach Frank Yallop moved into a tie with former pupil Dominic Kinnear for the No. 5 spot on the MLS regular-season coaching wins chart at 102 apiece. Yallop reached the 100-win


San Jose Earthquakes vs. Chivas USA, May 13, 2012, 4 p.m. PT milestone for his MLS managerial career with a 3-1 victory over Real Salt Lake on April 21. Yallop, whose career also includes a twoyear stint with the LA Galaxy in 2006-07, is now 102-97-70 (.509) as an MLS head coach in regular-season matches. He and Houston Dynamo boss Kinnear rank fifth behind Sigi Schmid (163), Bruce Arena (131), Bob Bradley (124) and Steve Nicol (112). A-Head of the Pack Chris Wondolowski’s header in the 15th minute at Vancouver on Saturday increased the Quakes’ league-leading total of headed goals to 10. D.C. United and Sporting Kansas City have five apiece. San Jose actually had a string of six straight headed goals dating back to Chris Wondolowski’s equalizer at New York on April 14, snapped against United on May 2. After Wondolowski’s goal at New York, all three goals versus RSL (4/21) were on headers, as were the two scores in Philadelphia (4/28). Wondolowski tops the squad with five header goals. Lenhart is next on the list with two, while Simon Dawkins, Alan Gordon and Khari Stephenson have headed in one apiece. May 5 Wrap-Up With his 15th-minute opener, Chris Wondolowski now has six goals in four games against Vancouver … Wondolowski has scored his most goals, six apiece, against Toronto FC and Vancouver … In 10 games against Canadian opposition as a Quakes player, Wondolowski has tallied 12 goals, with eight strikes on his northern travels … Marvin Chavez’s assist was his fourth of the year, matching his career high from a year ago with FC Dallas and giving him 10 for his MLS days … The loss was San Jose’s first this year on the road (3-0-1 previously), first against a Western Conference opponent (3-0-0), first in a game in which they were out-shot by the opponent (4-0-0) and first after having opened the scoring (5-0-0) … The loss was San Jose’s first in MLS competition north of the border, with the club now 2-1-4 all-time in Canada in league play … It was also Quakes head coach Frank Yallop’s first loss against Vancouver (now 1-1-2) and first MLS defeat in Canada (2-1-5). Wondolowski Earns Third Career MLS Player of the Month Honor Chris Wondolowski was named on May 2 as the MLS Player of the Month for April, as voted on by the North American Soccer Reporters (NASR). Wondolowski produced four goals and two assists as the Quakes went an undefeated 3-0-1 in the month and vaulted to the top spot in the Western Conference. He received eight of 21 first-place votes, one more than Sporting Kansas City defender Aurelien Collin. It was Wondolowski’s third monthly honor of his career following back-to-back torrid October run-ins to the 2010 and 2011 campaigns. He celebrated this latest award by posting his third brace already of 2012 just hours later, including his league-leading fourth gamewinning goal, to lead the Quakes to a 5-3 win over D.C. United and sole possession of first in the West. Wondolowski…Can’t…Stop…Scoring Chris Wondolowski continues to occupy MLS headlines. With his third two-goal brace of the 2012 season in the 5-3 win over D.C. United on May 2, he became the fastest player in league history to reach the 10-goal mark for a season, needing only San Jose’s first nine matches. Raul Diaz Arce tallied 10 goals over his first eight games of the 1997 season for D.C. United, but having missed time through injury, scored his 10th in D.C.’s 16th game of the year at Dallas on July 4, 1997. Wondolowski’s brace also broke the club record for multi-goal games that he shared with Ronald Cerritos, now with nine multi-goal performances. Wondolowski’s opener meant goal No. 50 for his eight-year MLS career, with his 69th-minute header proving to increase his club-record haul of game-winners to 19. Having then tallied the lone Quakes goal in Vancouver last Saturday, the Danville native has 19 goals over the last 19 games. Schedule Specs The win over D.C. United on May 2 marked the first of six midweek games this season for the Quakes. San Jose had gone 0-3-1 in such games in 2011. The Quakes concluded their first multi-game week, with three matches over an eight-day span, in Vancouver on Saturday. The Quakes face six matches in all for the busy month of May, after having played four each in March and April. Ten-Game Superlatives At 7-2-1 and 22 points, this is the best 10-game start to a year in the San Jose Earthquakes’ 15-season club history. In 2001 and 2003, the Quakes trotted out to a 5-2-3 start for 18 points. They were 5-3-2 (17 pts.) to open 2002 and 2010. The Quakes’ 21 goals scored is their best 10-game output ever. They tallied 20 goals through 10 games in 1998, and 19 in 2004. With 11 goals conceded thus far, this equals the franchise’s best 10-game defensive start. San Jose allowed 11 goals over its first 10 matches in 2001 and 2002.

His strike on April 21 was the first of Wondolowski’s career against Real Salt Lake. Houston, Portland and Montreal are the only current clubs remaining in MLS that he has not scored against. Wondolowski has yet to face 2012 expansion side Montreal. Wondolowski Streaks -Longest active streak in MLS with either a goal or an assist at eight games (longest of career) -Latest goal-scoring streak of five games (second-longest in career) snapped in Week 8 at Philadelphia -Club-record and personal-best six-game goal-scoring streak dating back to 2011 was halted in Week 2 vs. Houston -Previous best was a four-game goal-scoring run from April 17-May 8, 2010 -Scored all 12 Quakes goals from Sept. 15, 2010-March 26, 2011, an MLS record for most consecutive goals by one player -Produced five straight Quakes goals from Sept. 24-Oct. 15, 2011 Steven Lenhart in Select Company With back-to-back two-goal braces within a five-day span on April 28 and May 2, Steven Lenhart became just the fifth player in club history to produce multi-goal performances in consecutive league games. Landon Donovan (Sept. 20-27, 2003), Ariel Graziani (June 18, 2002), Manny Lagos (July 14-18, 2001) and Paul Bravo (July 17-20, 1996) are the others. Quakes Hit for Five Last Wednesday night against D.C. United, San Jose scored five goals in a single game for the first time since the Quakes rejoined MLS as an expansion franchise prior to the 2008 season. It was the most goals they have produced since a 5-5 draw with the MetroStars inside Spartan Stadium on May 8, 2004. The five goals were also an MLS high for Buck Shaw Stadium, with the Quakes having tallied four goals there previously on four separate occasions, most recently the 4-2 win over FC Dallas in the 2011 season finale on Oct. 22. The eight combined goals by the two teams were also a Buck Shaw record, and the most in a Quakes game since the 5-5 affair in 2004. The eight goals were the most this season in MLS, edging the seven scored in New York’s 5-2 home defeat of Montreal on March 31, and the most in MLS since a 4-4 draw at PPL Park between Philadelphia and New England on Sept. 7, 2011. Lenhart Voted MLS Player of the Week Steven Lenhart was voted by the North American Soccer Reporters on April 30 as the MLS Player of the Week for Week 8 after his dramatic brace off the bench to lift San Jose to a 2-1 road victory over the Philadelphia Union on April 28. Lenhart, who earned the first Player of the Week distinction for the Quakes in 2012, opened the scoring at PPL Park in the 76th minute, before heading home the winner in the final minute of stoppage time. He needed just 30 minutes on the field to grab the honor. It was Lenhart’s second career MLS Player of the Week award, following his Week 13 hat trick at D.C. United a year ago. Yallop’s Super Subs Quakes head coach Frank Yallop used just two of his allotted three substitutions at Philadelphia on April 28. He inserted Marvin Chavez and Steven Lenhart together in the 60th minute for Sam Cronin and Tressor Moreno. All the duo did was combine for two goals and two assists as the speedy winger fed the target forward for headers on both Quakes strikes, from the left and right side, respectively. Class in the Back Against Real Salt Lake (4/21) and Philadelphia (4/28), Frank Yallop’s four-player defensive line consisted of three fellow members of San Jose’s 2010 MLS SuperDraft class: Ike Opara (1st Round, No. 3, Wake Forest) at center back, Justin Morrow (2nd Round, No. 28, Notre Dame) at left back and Steven Beitashour (2nd Round, No. 30, San Diego State) at right back. The two starts were the first on the year for Opara. Morrow was the starting left back for the first two times this year in the injury absence of captain Ramiro Corrales, after beginning each of the first six contests at center back. Lenny Opens Scoring Account Quakes forward Steven Lenhart scored his first two goals of the 2012 season at Philadelphia on April 28. They were his first goals since the 2-2 draw with the New York Red Bulls at Stanford Stadium on July 2, 2011. Lenhart’s stoppage-time winner marked goal No. 20 for


San Jose Earthquakes vs. Chivas USA, May 13, 2012, 4 p.m. PT his five-year MLS career. With another brace against D.C. United on May 2, he now has 22 career goals and nine strikes in 22 appearances in a San Jose uniform. Quakes Shaking Up Opponents’ Record Streaks The Quakes have put an end to a pair of lengthy, record shutout streaks by their opponents of 400-plus minutes this season. At home against Vancouver on April 7, Chris Wondolowski’s equalizer in the 68th minute halted a 427-minute shutout stretch for the ‘Caps, a new MLS record to begin a season. On April 28 at Philadelphia, Steven Lenhart opened the scoring in the 76th minute, stopping a clean stretch of 407 minutes for the Union defense, a franchise record. Stoppage-Time Heart-Stoppers San Jose won back-to-back matches courtesy of stoppage-time strikes late last month. Simon Dawkins’ near-post header to the far corner at 92+ when six minutes were added on sent the Quakes to a 3-1 victory at home over Real Salt Lake and vaulted them into firstplace in the Western Conference on April 21. Exactly one week later at PPL Park, it was a back-post Steven Lenhart header as the game moved into the last of three added-time minutes that gave San Jose a 2-1 triumph over the Philadelphia Union. Combined with the Vancouver result from April 7, the Quakes have scored three game-winners in the 72nd minute or later so far this season. Road Turnaround The Quakes have already matched their 2011 total of three road wins, and after collecting just 15 points on their travels a year ago (3-86), they are past the halfway mark to that number with 10 through five road dates in 2012. Their 3-0-1 record was the Quakes’ best-ever four-game road start. Western Edge Through MLS games played on May 6, the Western Conference has the edge over the Eastern Conference. The nine Western Conference teams have collected 134 points, compared to 109 by the 10 Eastern Conference squads, and have trotted out to a 24-16-5 record in games involving teams from both divisions. The Eastern Conference had its best showing over Week 3 and Week 4, posting a 6-3-2 mark against the Western Conference during that stretch. Hernandez Moving Up Club Record Book Against Real Salt Lake in front of the home crowd at Buck Shaw Stadium on April 21, Quakes center back Jason Hernandez earned start No. 100 for him in club colors since he joined the Earthquakes prior to their return to MLS for the 2008 season. It was his first start of 2012. Hernandez is climbing the all-time club charts, as he is now No. 8 in both starts (103) and minutes played (9,162). Hernandez made his 100th appearance in an Earthquakes uniform in his 2012 debut when he entered the March 31 match at Seattle at halftime. Road Stretch Rewind The San Jose Earthquakes recorded several notable achievements in putting together back-to-back shutout victories on their two-game road stretch last month, marking the beginning of their away schedule for 2012. Having won 3-0 at Toronto FC on March 24 and 1-0 at Seattle Sounders FC on March 31, San Jose kept consecutive road shutouts for the first time since Oct. 2 (0-0 at Columbus) and Oct. 9, 2010 (2-0 at D.C. United). They posted two straight road wins for the first time since Sept. 5 (2-1 at Houston) and Sept. 25, 2010 (3-2 at Toronto FC). The Quakes won road games in consecutive weeks for the first time since Aug. 8 (1-0 at Kansas City) and Aug. 13, 2003 (3-0 at Dallas). San Jose came out on top in its first two road games to open a season for the first time since 2003, having also done so in 1999. The win at TFC was San Jose’s biggest road victory since a 4-1 decision at Kansas City on Sept. 20, 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. Corrales is the franchise’s all-time leader in games played (224), starts (206) and minutes played (18,309). Now in his 11th season in San Jose, Corrales played in his 200th game for the Earthquakes on July 2, 2011, against the New York Red Bulls. He made his MLS debut as a 19-year-old on April 28, 1996, at the LA Galaxy. The list of (now 20) players who have made 200-plus starts with one MLS club follows (bold are still active with listed teams): 1. C.J. Brown – 290 starts for CHI 2. Jaime Moreno – 288 starts for DC 3. Cobi Jones – 281 starts for LA 4. Shalrie Joseph – 247 starts for NE 5. Kevin Hartman – 238 starts for LA 5. Jay Heaps – 238 starts for NE 7.

And Then There Was One Ramiro Corrales is the lone remaining active player in MLS who participated in the league’s inaugural 1996 season. Defender Frankie Hejduk (LA Galaxy) and goalkeeper Zack Thornton (Chivas USA) made a handful of appearances in 2011. Hejduk officially announced his retirement and joined the Columbus Crew front office on April 19. Corrales was the youngest to play in MLS in 1996 as a 19-year-old.


San Jose Earthquakes vs. Chivas USA, May 13, 2012, 4 p.m. PT Busch Among MLS Career Leaders With a current mark of .752, 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 63rd clean sheet of his 11-year MLS career on March 31 at Seattle Sounders FC, moving him into sole possession of seventh among the all-time leaders, ahead of former MLS and U.S. Men’s National Team standout Tony Meola. Busch has posted 17 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. Next on the list is former Quake Pat Onstad with 64. Busch is also No. 8 all-time in saves in MLS history with 829 over his career. Wondolowski Aiming for No. 1 on Quakes’ Career Goals List Chris Wondolowski continues to chase Ronald Cerritos for No. 1 on the franchise career goals list. The Danville native has scored 17 goals over the last 15 matches and 19 in 19 dating back to the end of the 2011 season, to increase his career haul in San Jose to 48. Cerritos is the club’s all-time leader with 61 goals from 1997-2001 and 2005. Wondolowski 10th in MLS History to Notch 16 in 16 With his game-clincher against Real Salt Lake on April 21, Chris Wondolowski became the 10th player in MLS history to score 16 goals (or more) over a 16-game stretch. All 10 players achieved the feat over multiple seasons. The list follows, with the final season listed: Raul Diaz Arce (1997), Roy Lassiter (1997), Stern John (1999), Mamadou Diallo (2001), Diego Serna (2001), Carlos Ruiz (2003), Taylor Twellman (2003), Luciano Emilio (2007), Jeff Cunningham (2010), Chris Wondolowski (2012). Wondo the Road Warrior After completing the 2011 season in a tie with Fredy Montero of Seattle Sounders FC for the most goals scored away from home at nine apiece, Chris Wondolowski opened his new road account with a two-goal brace at Toronto FC in the Quakes’ 2012 road debut on March 24. In 2011, Wondolowski collected his ninth in San Jose’s last away fixture of the year with a 24th-minute strike against Seattle Sounders FC on Oct. 15 at CenturyLink Field, to pull even with Montero, who he opposed again on that same field on March 31 and came up with the game’s lone goal. Wondolowski currently leads MLS with five road goals in 2012. He finished third in road goals in 2010 with eight, behind Dwayne De Rosario (10), then of Toronto FC, and Juan Pablo Angel (9), then of the New York Red Bulls. The list of MLS leaders in road goals since the start of the 2010 season follows: 1. Chris Wondolowski (SJ) – 22 2. Dwayne De Rosario (DC) – 17 3. Juan Pablo Angel (CHV) – 14 4. Fredy Montero (SEA) – 12 5. Dominic Oduro (CHI) – 10 5. Marco Pappa (CHI) – 10 7. Fabian Espindola (RSL) – 9 Wondo Winners Earthquakes forward Chris Wondolowski wasted little time in opening his goal-scoring account for the 2012 campaign, the two-time MLS leader needing just under 15 minutes of the season opener against the New England Revolution on March 10 to find the back of the net. The right-footed strike from just outside the penalty area moved Wondolowski into sole possession of the all-time club record for gamewinning goals, which he previously shared with Quakes great Ronald Cerritos at 15 deciders apiece. With a league-best four in 2012, Wondolowski now has 19 career game-winners, and is up to 11th on the all-time MLS chart, tied with three others. While Jeff Cunningham compiled his record 40 winners in 365 appearances, Wondolowski’s current haul has come in just 121 games. Since the start of the 2010 season, Wondolowski has accounted for the decisive goal in 18 of the Earthquakes’ 28 victories, or 64 percent. The list of MLS leaders in game-winning goals since the start of the 2010 season follows: 1. Chris Wondolowski (SJ) – 18 2. Alvaro Saborio (RSL) – 11 3. Brek Shea (FCD) – 9 3. Fredy Montero (SEA) – 9 5. Dwayne De Rosario (DC) – 8 Wondolowski Climbs into Three-Year Goal-Scoring Output List Through the first 10 games of the 2012 season, Chris Wondolowski has 11 goals. His goal at Vancouver on May 5 gave him 45 strikes since the start of the 2010 season, moving him into a tie for the eighth-best three-year haul in league history. Wondolowski is just five goals shy already of his 2011 total. He needed 30 matches to tally 11 goals in 2011, and 24 in 2010. He is on pace to challenge Roy Lassiter’s MLS single-season record of 27 goals from 1996. Below are the top 10 three-year goal-scoring performances in MLS history: 1. Raul Diaz Arce – 56 in 1996-98 2. Roy Lassiter – 55 in 1996-98 3. Carlos Ruiz – 50 in 2002-04 4. Mamadou Diallo – 47 in 2000-02 4. Taylor Twellman – 47 in 2002-04

Juan Pablo Angel (CHV) – 24 Making the First One Count The Earthquakes are 99-10-24 in their last 133 matches when scoring first, dating back to July 8, 2000. They finished 8-1-3 in 2008 when scoring first, 6-1-5 in 2009, an unbeaten 12-0-2 in 2010 and 7-4-5 last season. The Quakes are 5-1-0 in 2012. Prior to 2010, San Jose also went undefeated in 2001 (13-0-2), 2003 (11-0-1) and 2005 (14-0-5) when scoring first. The Earthquakes were 12-2-0 in 2002 when finding the back of the net first, only giving up leads two times in losing 2-1 at the LA Galaxy on July 4, and falling at Kansas City by the same score on July 27. In 2004, the Quakes went 8-1-1 when scoring first, the best mark in MLS. The Quakes surrendered a 1-0 advantage and dropped a 2-1 decision at the LA Galaxy on July 4, 2004, losing for just the first time since July 27, 2002, when striking first. The Quakes are also impressive in the playoffs when scoring first, posting an 8-0-1 record all-time. Scoring First Under Yallop During Frank Yallop’s tenure with San Jose, the Earthquakes are one of the best teams in the league when scoring the first goal. The team went 36-2-3 from 2001-03 when producing the first goal of the contest. The Quakes only gave up leads two times in 2002, losing 21 at the LA Galaxy on July 4 and falling at Kansas City by the same score on July 27. Yallop’s team was 8-1-3 in 2008 when scoring first, 6-1-5 in 2009, 12-0-2 in 2010, 7-4-5 in 2011, and 5-1-0 early in 2012. The Quakes are 74-9-18 (.822) in eight seasons under Yallop when striking first. Halftime Success The Earthquakes remain amongst the best in league history in holding onto a halftime lead. Since the beginning of the 2000 season, the Quakes are 74-3-15 (.886) when leading at the half, including impressive marks of 7-0-2 in 2010, 4-0-3 in 2009, 7-0-3 in 2005, 7-0-1 in 2004 and 8-0-1 in 2003. They are off to a 5-0-0 start in 2012. Despite holding a 1-0 halftime lead on May 10, 2008, vs. Columbus, the Quakes were edged by the final score of 3-2. That game marked the team’s first loss since 1999 when holding a halftime advantage. Wells Fargo Goals for Education Wells Fargo has again pledged to donate $250 for each goal the Earthquakes score in 2012 through the Goals for Education program. With 21 goals through 10 games, the donated total for this season already stands at $5,250. Thanks to 40 goals in 2011, the partnership raised $10,000 for local youth soccer and athletic development programs a year ago. After fielding dozens of applications, the Earthquakes and Wells Fargo awarded 16 grants to deserving organizations, and with Quakes midfielder Anthony Ampaipitakwong on hand, made special check presentations at America SCORES Bay Area and Castro Valley Soccer Club in January. Earthquakes, Wondolowski Support Street Soccer USA Two-time MLS leading goal-scorer Chris Wondolowski and Street Soccer USA, a non-profit organization that seeks to end homelessness through sports, have partnered to make a difference in the lives of the homeless in the Bay Area through the “One Goal at a Time” campaign. For every goal Wondolowski scores during the 2012 season, the Quakes star has pledged a $100 donation to Street Soccer USA (SSUSA), and is asking fans to join in his mission. Additionally, the Earthquakes Community Fund will match Wondolowski’s donations. Wondolowski, who has been a national ambassador for SSUSA since August of 2011, got an early start on his 2012 scoring account with a strike in San Jose’s season opener on March 10, and has a league-leading 11 goals through 10 games. Quakes Get Go-Ahead from San Jose Planning Commission on New Stadium The San Jose Planning Commission voted 6-0 to uphold the Earthquakes’ Planned Development Permit on Feb. 22, paving the way for the club to break ground on its new stadium at 1125 Coleman Avenue. The Earthquakes’ PD Permit was initially consented for approval by city planners on Dec. 14, but was appealed by a Newhall Neighborhood Association member on Jan. 1. Fans clad in Earthquakes colors filled the council chambers to capacity. Owner Lew Wolff, Club President Dave Kaval and MLS President Mark Abbott spoke on behalf of the Quakes, among numerous community members and stakeholders, for over two hours before the commission closed discussion and took action on the appeal. The club has already sold 10 of 12 available field-level luxury suites for its new stadium, generating over $3.5 million in revenue for the project.

Chivas USA vs. San Jose Earthquakes Sunday, May 13, 2012 – Buck Shaw Stadium, Santa Clara, CA ‐ 4:00 PM (PT)

Showdown at the Home Depot Center on 5 de Mayo weekend: Chivas USA vs. Chicago Fire The Rojiblancos look to win their fourth road match of the season when they face the San Jose Earthquakes, Sunday, May 13, at 4:00 pm (PT) at Buck Shaw Stadium. The match will broadcast on television, live on Galavision. For more information about the game, please visit cdchivasusa.com or call 1-877-CHIVAS-1. Follow us on and Chivas USA (3-6-0) fell, 2-1, to the Chicago Fire (3-2-2) Friday, May 4th before a crowd of 14,652 at the Home Depot Center. Chivas USA’s lone goal was knocked in by forward Juan Pablo Angel and Chicago’s by Austin Berry and Marco Pappa. With the loss, the Red-and-White remains at nine points on the season.

GOATS NOTES  & STATS Off the injury list, Lahoud is ready to make an impact for Goats After a lengthy stay on the injury list to start the season, Chivas USA midfielder Michael Lahoud is champing at the bit to return to action for the Rojiblancos.Fresh off recovering from a left hamstring strain that kept him sidelined for the first two months of the season, the 25year-old winger made his season debut last week against the Chicago Fire, going nine minutes in a disappointing 2-1 stoppagetime defeat. Although the circumstances were hardly ideal for his return, Lahoud is pleased to have cleared a major stage in his recovery. Lahoud’s road back to action has been a long – and at times frustrating – one. After being considered the consensus club MVP during the preseason, he has been on the shelf since straining his hamstring just days before the season opener. Since suffering the injury, his recovery has been an incremental one, but the slow and steady look to recovery did not prevent Lahoud from suffering a setback several weeks ago that delayed his recovery further. That didn't deter him, however – Lahoud made his first gameday roster less than a week later against Colorado, setting the stage for his debut against Chicago. Valencia looking to stay in Chivas USA's starting lineup John Alexander Valencia’s MLS career did not start according to plan, but now that the Colombian defender has made his first start for Chivas USA, he has no intention of looking back. The hulking defender made his league debut last Friday in the club’s 2-1 defeat to the Chicago Fire, starting alongside fellow behemoth center back Rauwshan McKenzie. That Valencia’s first appearance came weeks into the season was a shock to the defender, who served as a firstchoice center back during the preseason before a quadriceps strain cut him down just days before the Rojiblancos’ season opener. As Valencia recovered, McKenzie took hold of the starting job, leading to Valencia to seek time with the reserves, where he has started five of six reserve games this season. But against Chicago, head coach Robin Fraser made the decision to shift center back Heath Pearce to his natural left back position, allowing Valencia to slide in alongside McKenzie for his debut.

GOATS NOTES CONT…  Correa makes an impression in brief debut for Goats Chivas USA’s attack has been struggling, but in their 2-1 defeat to the Chicago Fire, the club got a firsthand look at one of the players who’s expected to help cure their offensive woes. Colombian forward José Erik Correa made his league debut last Friday, going a total of 20 minutes against the Fire as a substitute. In his short stint, Correa – who scored six goals in seven games with Boyacá Chicó before joining Chivas – was able to make several dangerous runs, but struggled to find the ball as Chicago pushed forward before ultimately scoring the game-winner. But while his time on the field may have been short, the club was able to see promising signs from the young Colombian. With the club possibly looking at going into in a 4-4-2 to fix their offensive difficulties, Correa’s opportunities to play alongside Juan Pablo Ángel or any of Chivas’ other forwards should increase. But first, the youngster believes that he must adapt to a style of play that is far different than the one in his native Colombia. Dan Kennedy to USMNT? After 10 games, 33 saves and 1.22 goals against average this season, should Chivas USA Goalkeeper Dan Kennedy be called-up to the United States Men's National Team? MLSSoccer.com thinks so. In Klinsmann’s Power 5 Radar, at the top of the this list is Chivas USA goalkeeper, Dan Kennedy, whom has already earned a player of the week award for the 2012 MLS season. Visit cdchivasusa.com to watch the Top 5 power rankings of players in US Men’s National Team head coach, Jurgen Klinsmann’s radar. ��� Consistent Goats: As of May 4, 2012, 3 Goats have started and played all 810 minutes of action (all 9 matches this season), including: GK-Dan Kennedy; D-Heath Pearce, and D-James Riley. • Record Breaker: Alejandro Moreno so far has played in 255 matches (206 starts) for his MLS career, currently ranked 35th all-time for games played in the league. The Venezuelan native needs just 5 more appearances to tie current Chivas USA head Coach Robin Fraser for 32nd all-time with 260 MLS life-time appearances. Alejandro Moreno is currently tied with Giovanni Savarese as the top Venezuelan goal scorers in MLS history with 51. With just one more score, Moreno will occupy the first spot as all-time Venezuelan goal scorer. • Top 5 in MLS: Chivas USA goalkeeper Dan Kennedy in currently tied for 4th best goalkeeper (with 33 saves) in the 2012 MLS season with Matt Reis of the New England Revolution, and just 4 off the top spot help by Ryan Meara of the New York Red Bulls. Kennedy finished in 5th place amongst the top goalkeepers for the 2011 MLS season. • May’s Goals: Historically the Goats have scored well in the month of May. Since joining the league, Chivas USA has scored 45 goals in the month of May. • Home, away from home: All of the Red-and-White’s victories this 2012 season have come on road games. 1-0 vs. RSL on 3/24, 2-1 vs. Portland on 4/7, and 1-0 vs. Toronto on 4/14. • In search of Goals: Five goals from five different players have accounted for all of Chivas USA’s scoring thus far this season. Two of those goals came from MLS newcomers Casey Townsend and Oswaldo Minda.

GOATS FACTS • • • •

In 2011, the Goats beat the Earthquakes in both of their meetings, once at home and once on the road. Chivas USA have dominated their Nor Cal rivals since 2008, going 6-1-2 in that span. The Goats swept the season series against the Quakes in 2011 by score-lines of 2-0 and 2-1. Historically since they first faced each other, the Goats and the Quakes have each scored 17 goals against each other.

RED‐AND‐WHITE COMMUNITY Chivas USA with HEART From five year olds chasing one ball as a group to 15 year-olds practicing corner kicks, Chivas USA hosted over a hundred children in the second annual HEART Soccer Camps last Friday at The Home Depot Center. This year, the Red-and-White worked in association with the Partnership for Los Angeles Schools, who works with the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) to identify the most impoverished and lowest performing schools in an effort to help improve the school’s academic performance. Certified Chivas USA Youth Academy coaches and specialized volunteers lead the players aged 5-15 in a series of fun and unique activities that had them practicing a variety of soccer techniques designed to teach them the basics of soccer. After a tiring 90 minute soccer clinic, the participants then headed off to the stadium where the young students, as well as their parents, had the opportunity to enjoy the match between Chivas USA and Chicago. Chivas USA teams up once again with Donate Life California Dealing with a loss of a loved one is a tough situation, but when it gives you the opportunity to help save someone else’s life by donating their organs and tissue, you don’t have to think twice. And with more than 21,000 Californians waiting for an organ transplant, adding your name to the cause will make a difference. Donate Life aims to increase awareness of the importance or organ and tissue donation. The organization’s partnership with Chivas USA speaks to the team’s commitment to supporting causes that benefit the community. Tissue donation is especially important to athletes who are injured on the field and require reconstructive surgery to replace or strengthen their damaged joints.

RED‐AND‐WHITE COMMUNITY CONT…

UNION ULTRAS, LEGIÓN 1908 AND BLACK ARMY PROVIDE SUPPORT FROM THE STANDS Chivas USA is cheered on by three supporter groups in The Home Depot Center for Red-and-White home games. The Union Ultras, founded in 2007 as a Chivas USA-specific supporters group, sit behind the South goal in the stadium (right-hand side from the Press Box) for every home match that the Goats play. On the opposite end (far left-hand corner from the Press Box) is the Legión 1908, which was founded in 2001 as the Los Angeles chapter of the worldwide Chivas de Guadalajara supporters’ organization. The Los Angeles chapter is the third biggest Legión 1908 group, trailing only Mexico City and Guadalajara in size. Chivas USA’s newest supporter’s group, Black Army 1850, stands in section 138 (far right-hand corner from press box) and started during the 2010 season. CHIVAS USA PLAYERS GIVE FANS ‘JERSEYS OFF OUR BACKS’ RETURNS FOR 2012 Opening Day at The Home Depot Center marked the beginning of an all season long promotion, Chivas USA players are giving eleven lucky soccer fans the ‘Jerseys Off Our Backs’. Continuing a program that has been a fan-favorite since starting in 2008, after the final whistle of each of Chivas USA’s 18 MLS home games at The Home Depot Center, all players on the field – win, lose or draw – will present Chivas USA fans with their game-worn jerseys, as a special souvenir of appreciation. Fans must visit the Chivas USA tent located on the South West side of the stadium by halftime and fill out an entry form for a chance to win.
