SAN JOSE EARTHQUAKES vs COLUMBUS CREW BUCK SHAW STADIUM, Santa Clara, Calif. May 19, 2012 (WEEK 11, MLS Game #106) 7:30 p.m. PT (CSN-CA; FS-OH) Aiming to get back to their winning ways, the San Jose Earthquakes play the second game of their homestand when they entertain the Columbus Crew on Saturday evening at Buck Shaw Stadium. The Quakes have gone without a victory in back-to-back games for the first time this year, despite coming back for a 1-1 home draw with Chivas USA last weekend. The Crew put an end to a five-game winless skid of their own last weekend, also coming back in a 2-1 home win vs. FC Dallas. REFEREE: Juan Guzman.

But three of the four meetings since have ended in draws; San Jose was victorious on May 14 of last year.  Coaches record: Frank Yallop vs. CLB: P20 W7 L8 D5 … Robert Warzycha vs. SJ: P7 W2 L2 D3 SAN JOSE EARTHQUAKES The San Jose Earthquakes once again came through with some endgame heroics, getting a late goal to salvage a 1-1 draw with Chivas USA on Sunday evening at Buck Shaw Stadium. The Quakes are in second place in the Western Conference with 23 points from 11 games. LAST MATCH  Chivas USA took the lead after just four minutes. James Riley ran down a ball on the overlap on the right and hooked in a low cross that Jose Erick Correa finished deftly from seven yards, curling the ball past Quakes goalkeeper Jon Busch and just inside the far post.  But the Quakes once again had some late drama. Sam Garza, a 60th-minute substitute, roamed free on the left wing before delivering a perfectly placed near-post cross that Alan Gordon met with authority, just beating goalkeeper Dan Kennedy to the ball and nodding it inside the back post.  Earthquakes head coach Frank Yallop made two changes to the team that fell to a stoppage-time goal in a 2-1 defeat by Vancouver Whitecaps FC at BC Place. Tressor Moreno and Khari Stephenson came into the team for Marvin Chavez and Sam Cronin.  SAN JOSE EARTHQUAKES (4-4-2): Jon Busch - Steven Beitashour, Jason Hernandez, Justin Morrow, Ramiro Corrales - Rafael Baca (Sam Garza 60), Tressor Moreno (Alan Gordon 57), Khari Stephenson, Simon Dawkins - Steven Lenhart (Sercan Guvenisik 75), Chris Wondolowski.

MLS GAME INFORMATION


TEAM NEWS  The Earthquakes saw their three-game winning streak at Buck Shaw Stadium come to an end despite coming back to salvage the point late.  “I am very happy that we got a point out of the game. It shows that we always have fight in us and we aren’t going to quit,” said Quakes head coach Frank Yallop. “We didn’t play our game today, but it’s a good sign that we fought to get a point, especially in against a team from the Western Conference.”  The Quakes have scored half of their 22 goals on the season after the 60th minute – with five coming in the final quarter-hour (tied for second-most in MLS, behind Colorado’s 6). It was the third time in the last five matches San Jose has scored the tying or winning goal in the 88th minute or later.  “We showed some resiliency today. We are gaining something out of every match it seems. As long as we aren’t losing too many of these close games, you will see us improve each and every week,” said Alan Gordon. “These are games at home in which you need to come away with points. We didn’t get the win, but to come back like that late and go home with a point can build momentum for us moving forward.”  Gordon returned to action after missing three matches with a hamstring strain and scored his second goal this season – both as a substitute. Since being acquired from Toronto FC last July, all three of Gordon’s goals with San Jose have come after the 70th minute.  “Every time Alan Gordon has been on the field for us, he’s produced and been dangerous,” Quakes center back Jason Hernandez said. “When he’s healthy, he really, really helps us out.”  Missing Marvin Chavez after he suffered a hamstring strain in the Vancouver match, rookie Sam Garza provided an injection of pace with his introduction on the hour, and recorded his first MLS assist.  “We were struggling with our pace in the first half. Coach (Frank Yallop) told me to go run out wide and look to make some crosses. We brought in a little more speed in the second half and created some chances. You have to credit Chivas (USA) for staying tight back there. We fought for that draw. I tried to sub on and bring some energy and speed, and luckily it worked as we were able to equalize and get a point.” COLUMBUS CREW The Columbus Crew put an end to their winless run after five games, coming back for a 2-1 victory against FC Dallas on Saturday evening at Crew Stadium. The Crew sit in a tie for seventh place in the Eastern Conference with 11 points from 9 games. LAST MATCH  The visitors took the lead in the 22nd minute. Fabián Castillo gathered a pass on the touchline, and after Crew midfielder Tony Tchani gave up chase, thinking the ball had gone out of bounds, Castillo continued down the left side, cut toward the box, twisted past a defender then bested goalkeeper Andy Gruenebaum at the near post.  But FC Dallas went a man down in the 63rd minute when Zach Loyd received a second caution.  It took the Crew only four minutes to capitalize. Justin Meram, who entered late in the first half, got the ball about 35 yards out from the net and ripped a rising shot for his first MLS goal.  Five minutes later, Columbus completed their rally thanks to Sebastian Miranda’s snapped header from 20 yards out off a corner kick by Nemanja Vukovic.  Crew head coach Robert Warzycha made no changes to the team that reached a scoreless draw with the Portland Timbers at Jeld-Wen Field.  COLUMBUS CREW (4-1-3-2): Andy Gruenebaum - Sebastian Miranda, Josh Williams, Eric Gehrig, Nemanja Vukovic (Shaun Francis 90) - Danny O'Rourke - Tony Tchani, Milovan Mirosevic, Eddie Gaven - Ethan Finlay (Justin Meram 44), Emilio Renteria (Bernardo Anor 83). TEAM NEWS  The Crew won for the first time since a 1-0 win at Toronto FC on March 31 and put an end to their 263-minute goalless drought – fourth-longest this year in MLS – with the two second-half goals.  “We needed it. It has been over 200 minutes without a goal and we finally got the monkey off our shoulders and we were able to get the first goal. Once you get the first one the others will come,” said Justin Meram.  Meram scored his first professional goal, pulling the Crew level in the second half. He was a 2011 SuperDraft selection out of the University of Michigan.  Meram was making his second consecutive appearance, both as a substitute, his first two of the season. He came on just before halftime for the injured Ethan Finlay.  “I felt that Meram’s speed could hurt them [Dallas] on the left side. I think he did very well today, he was very quick, didn’t hold the ball too much and that’s how we wanted him to play,” said Warzycha. “If he keeps playing that way he can be very effective.”  Sebastian Miranda also scored his first goal since coming to Columbus and MLS – a remarkable header from outside the penalty area on a corner kick.  “We practiced some plays and corners and the idea was maybe to find Milo [Mirosevic]. I was outside the box unmarked and I headed the ball and scored,” said Miranda. “It was my first time scoring with a header in my

 

career. I headed it as hard as I could and it went in. The important for me was not the goal but that we won. This was good for our confidence.” The Crew should again have midfielder Dilly Duka available this weekend. Duka played 12 minutes in the season opener before suffering a hamstring injury, then returned for a 33-minute shift against New York on April 7 before again injuring the muscle. “He can do some special things on the field,” Warzycha said. “He can take defenders on and create chances. He’s good technically and holds the ball well. He can draw more players to leave space for someone else.” Said Duka: “I think I can help with the attack whether I start or coming in as a sub. I’ll have fresh legs and some experience from playing last year.”

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

Last Game Earthquakes 1, Chivas USA 1; May 13, 2012; Buck Shaw Stadium; Santa Clara, Calif. Alan Gordon came off the bench to score an 88th-minute equalizer, earning the San Jose Earthquakes a 1-1 draw against Chivas USA on Mother’s Day at Buck Shaw Stadium. Gordon came on for Tressor Moreno in the 57th minute and left his mark late in the match with his second goal of the campaign. Fellow second-half substitute Sam Garza created the chance, curling a left-footed, in-swinging cross from the left wing to the near post, where Gordon headed home for the 1-1 deadlock. Garza picked up his first MLS assist in what was his second appearance for San Jose. The goal marked the fourth time the Earthquakes have scored in the 88th minute or later this season. Late-game heroics also came in the form of two stoppage-time goals in a 3-1 victory against Real Salt Lake on April 21 and another stoppage-time winner at Philadelphia on April 28. After conceding a fourth-minute goal, the Earthquakes dominated the run of play the rest of the way. San Jose held 62.5 percent of the possession and out-shot Chivas USA, 24-5. The Earthquakes also tied a club record with 15 corner kicks, matching their output from Aug. 26, 2000, against the LA Galaxy at Spartan Stadium. The visiting Goats managed just one corner kick, and besides Colombian youngster Jose Correa’s first MLS goal in the early going, did not have another shot on goal for the entire match as Jon Busch completed his day without a single save. Last Game vs. Columbus Crew Earthquakes 0, Columbus Crew 0; July 16, 2011; Columbus Crew Stadium; Columbus, Ohio These two teams played to a scoreless draw in their most recent meeting last July in Ohio, as Columbus goalkeepers past and present produced standout performances. Despite five saves and the clean sheet by Jon Busch, the Earthquakes extended their winless streak to six games. William Hesmer made five stops of his own for the Crew. San Jose was blanked for the fifth time in six games while Hesmer recorded his second straight shutout. He made a leaping save to push a header by Chris Wondolowski over the crossbar. That play came a minute after Busch, who preceded Hesmer in Columbus, charged off the line to snuff an Andres Mendoza break, and in the 90th, he stopped a bad-angle try by Justin Meram. San Jose got the first crack of the match when Khari Stephenson stung a ball from 25 yards that pinged the right post only 62 seconds after the opening whistle. The teams finished with 18 shot attempts apiece.

San Jose Earthquakes vs. Columbus Crew, May 19, 2012, 7:30 p.m. PT OPPONENT INFO Columbus Crew Scouting Report Columbus (3-4-2, 11 pts.) is fresh off of a come-from-behind, 2-1 victory over 10-man FC Dallas at Crew Stadium on Saturday. The Crew got first career MLS goals from second-year forward Justin Meram and Chilean defender Sebastian Miranda to grab the three points. Columbus wasted little time in capitalizing after the visitors suffered a red-card ejection in the 63rd minute, as Meram, an injury substitution late in the first half, fired from distance following an Eric Gehrig steal in the 67th. Miranda capped the rally five minutes later with a snapped header assisted by Nemanja Vukovic. Meram’s strike ended a scoreless streak of 263 minutes for Columbus.

San Jose Earthquakes vs. Columbus Crew, May 19, 2012, 7:30 p.m. PT MISCELLANEOUS NOTES Quakes Second in the Western Conference The Earthquakes (7-2-2, 23 pts.) are in second-place in the Western Conference. Real Salt Lake (8-3-2, 26 pts.) tops the standings, but has still played two more games than the Quakes. Seattle Sounders FC is third (7-2-1, 22 pts.) with one game in hand over the Quakes. San Jose also trails only RSL in the race for the MLS Supporters’ Shield, with Eastern Conference leader Sporting Kansas City (7-3-0, 21 pts.) falling off a bit following three straight defeats after a perfect seven-game start. The New York Red Bulls (7-3-1, 22 pts.) now pace the East after four wins in a row. RSL is idle this week, while Seattle visits Vancouver on Saturday (2 p.m. PT). Quakes Among MLS Category Leaders Through 10 weeks of the 2012 MLS season, the Earthquakes lead the league with 25 assists. They are now second behind the New York Red Bulls (23) with 22 goals scored, ahead of D.C. United at 20. With 12 scores conceded, the Quakes boast the top goal differential in MLS at +10. Race for the Budweiser Golden Boot Chris Wondolowski remains alone atop the 2012 Budweiser Golden Boot race with 11 goals. Kenny Cooper and Thierry Henry of the New York Red Bulls share the second spot at nine goals apiece, with Henry missing a second straight game through injury at Philadelphia on Sunday. The D.C. United tandem of Maicon Santos (6) and Chris Pontius (5) round out the top five on the leaderboard. Buck Shaw Success San Jose is 4-0-1 at Buck Shaw thus far on the year, outscoring opponents 13-6. The Quakes are undefeated at Buck Shaw through their last eight (6-0-2) dating back to 2011, and had a club-record streak of eight straight sellouts at the venue snapped on April 21. This 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. Buschy Big Against Former Club While in San Jose, Jon Busch has yet to concede a goal over three matches and 270 minutes played against the Columbus Crew. The veteran keeper began his MLS career with the Crew back in 2002, and played a total of five seasons in Columbus. Busch has posted clean sheets of 0-0, 3-0 and 0-0 in his three meetings with the Crew as a member of the Quakes. In all, San Jose has kept a shutout streak of 290 minutes against Columbus dating back to a 2-2 home draw on June 2, 2010. Goals Galore San Jose is second in MLS with 22 goals scored. The New York Red Bulls lead with 23, while fellow Eastern Conference side D.C. United has 20. Through 11 matches, the Quakes are past the halfway mark to their 34-game 2011 total of 40 goals. San Jose scored just 14 times over its first 11 matches in 2011. The club record for single-season scoring is 55 from the 1997 campaign. That year, San Jose had 15 goals over its first 11 games. Quakes Linking Up Through Week 10 of the MLS season, San Jose paces the entire league with 25 assists. Steven Beitashour’s assist on the 69th-minute game-winner against D.C. United on May 2 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, has 12 assists in his last 28 appearances. Marvin Chavez is fifth in MLS with four assists, while fellow newcomer Tressor Moreno has three. 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 May 5. 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 six times within the final 15 minutes of matches in 2012. Those goals have all come in the last seven contests, vs. Vancouver on April 7 (Wondolowski, 78th), vs. RSL on April 21 (Simon Dawkins, 92+; Wondolowski, 93+), at Philadelphia on April 28 (Steven Lenhart, 76th; Lenhart, 93+), and vs. Chivas USA on May 13 (Alan Gordon, 88th). Earthquakes Set to Host Swansea City on July 31 The San Jose Earthquakes have announced their 2012 international friendly, with Swansea City of the English Premier League coming to Buck Shaw Stadium on Tuesday, July 31, for a 7:30 p.m. kick-off. Individual tickets for the match go on sale to the general public on Friday, May 18, at 10 a.m., and can be purchased by visiting sjearthquakes.com or calling (800) 225-2277.

The Swans have won the Welsh Cup 10 times, third-most in the competition’s history, and placed 11th in the just-concluded EPL season with a record of 12-15-11. Yallop No. 6 on MLS Wins List Eighth-year Earthquakes head coach Frank Yallop currently occupies the No. 6 spot on the MLS regular-season coaching wins chart at 102. 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. Yallop, whose career also includes a two-year stint with the LA Galaxy in 2006-07, is now 102-97-71 (.509) as an MLS head


San Jose Earthquakes vs. Columbus Crew, May 19, 2012, 7:30 p.m. PT coach in regular-season matches. He ranks behind Sigi Schmid (163), Bruce Arena (131), Bob Bradley (124), Steve Nicol (112) and former pupil Dominic Kinnear (103). A-Head of the Pack Alan Gordon’s game-tying header in the 88th minute against Chivas USA on Sunday increased the Quakes’ league-leading total of headed goals to 11. D.C. United and Sporting Kansas City have five apiece. San Jose had a string of six straight headed goals going back to Chris Wondolowski’s equalizer at New York on April 14, snapped against D.C. 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. Gordon and Lenhart have two each, while Simon Dawkins and Khari Stephenson have one apiece. May 13 Wrap-Up Alan Gordon’s equalizer marked his second goal of the year, third as a Quakes player and 24th of his career … All three of Gordon’s goals for San Jose have come on headers at Buck Shaw Stadium, and all three have served as either the game-winning or game-tying scores late (final 23 minutes) during substitute appearances to earn five points for the Quakes … Gordon’s goal snapped a scoreless streak for San Jose against Chivas USA of 251 minutes dating back to April 23, 2011 … Sam Garza’s assist on the lone Quakes goal was the first of his MLS career, and marked the first point of his professional days … Garza played a season-high 30 minutes in his second MLS appearance … Sercan Guvenisik also made his second MLS appearance and played a season-high 15 minutes … San Jose matched its season high of 24 shots, and produced its largest shot advantage in a single match this year of +19 (24-5) … Behind games (both at home) of 14 corner kicks (4/21 vs. RSL) and now 15 against Chivas USA, the latter matching a single-game franchise record (8/26/00 vs. LA), the Quakes rank second in MLS in the category with 63 (SKC has 71). Yallop’s Super Subs Sunday’s Chivas USA match marked the second time this season that the Quakes have used second-half substitutions by head coach Frank Yallop to earn points late. Yallop sent Alan Gordon and rookie Sam Garza onto the Buck Shaw grass over the final 33 minutes against Chivas USA, with the duo combining on the 88th-minute equalizer that led to a 1-1 draw. At Philadelphia on April 28, the veteran manager used just two of his allotted three substitutions, inserting Marvin Chavez and Steven Lenhart together with half an hour left for Sam Cronin and Tressor Moreno. All the duo did was combine for two goals and two assists as the speedy Honduran winger fed the target forward for headers on both Quakes strikes, from the left and right side, respectively, during a dramatic 2-1 victory. Eleven-Game Superlatives At 7-2-2 and 23 points, this is the best 11-game start to a year in the San Jose Earthquakes’ 15-season club history. In both MLS Cup campaigns of 2001 and 2003, the Quakes trotted out to a 6-2-3 start for 21 points. They were 6-3-2 (20 pts.) to open 2002. The Quakes’ 22 goals scored is their best 11-game output ever. They tallied 21 goals through 11 games in 1998, and 20 in 2004. With 12 goals conceded thus far, this equals the franchise’s second-best 11-game defensive start. San Jose allowed 11 goals over its first 11 matches in 2002, 12 in 2001 and 13 in 2003. Schedule Specs The Quakes continue a busy month of May with another three-game week beginning at home this Saturday night against the Columbus Crew. San Jose will contest three matches over a nine-day span to round out a six-game month, traveling to play the rival LA Galaxy on May 23, prior to a May 27 road date with Eastern Conference power Sporting Kansas City. The Quakes concluded their first multi-game week of the season with six points over three matches in eight days, from April 28-May 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 victory over D.C. United and sole possession of first-place in the West at the time. Wondolowski…Can’t…Stop…Scoring Chris Wondolowski continues to occupy MLS headlines. With his third two-goal brace of 2012 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 at nine such 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. The Danville native has 19 goals over the last 20 games.

United on May 2, 2012) -San Jose is 23-5-9 (.743) all-time in games in which he scores Equal Opportunity Wondo Of his 11 goals this season, Chris Wondolowski has tallied three with his right foot (vs. NE, at SEA, vs. VAN), three with his left foot (at TFC, vs. VAN, vs. DC) and five with his head (at TFC, at NY, vs. RSL, vs. DC, at VAN). 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 streak in MLS this year with either a goal or an assist of eight games (longest of career) snapped in Week 10 vs. Chivas USA -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 -Later produced five straight Quakes goals from Sept. 24-Oct. 15, 2011 Western Edge Through MLS games played on May 15, the Western Conference has the slight edge over the Eastern Conference. The nine Western Conference teams have collected 145 points, compared to 130 by the 10 Eastern Conference squads, and have a 24-18-8 record in games pitting teams from each division. 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. Unbeaten Stretch Snapped in Vancouver The Earthquakes took the longest unbeaten streak in MLS into Vancouver on May 5, 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. 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.


San Jose Earthquakes vs. Columbus Crew, May 19, 2012, 7:30 p.m. PT 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. 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. 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. 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 (225), starts (207) and minutes played (18,399). 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 – 248 starts for NE 5. Kevin Hartman – 238 starts for LA 5. Jay Heaps – 238 starts for NE 7. Kerry Zavagnin – 228 starts for KC 8. Jason Kreis – 227 starts for DAL 9. Matt Reis – 224 starts for NE 9. Nick Garcia – 224 starts for KC

11. Mike Clark – 216 starts for CLB 12. Logan Pause – 214 starts for CHI 13. Davy Arnaud – 213 starts for SKC 14. Chris Armas – 212 starts for CHI 14. Zach Thornton – 212 starts for CHI 14.

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. 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 (104) and minutes played (9,252). Hernandez made his 100th appearance in an Earthquakes uniform in his 2012 debut when he entered the March 31 match at Seattle at halftime. Busch Among MLS Career Leaders With a current mark of .751, 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 16 matches and 19 in 20 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:


San Jose Earthquakes vs. Columbus Crew, May 19, 2012, 7:30 p.m. PT 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 3. Fredy Montero (SEA) – 14 5. Fabian Espindola (RSL) – 10 5. Dominic Oduro (CHI) – 10 5. Marco Pappa (CHI) – 10 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 four others. While Jeff Cunningham compiled his record 40 winners in 365 appearances, Wondolowski’s current haul has come in just 122 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. Fredy Montero (SEA) – 10 4. Brek Shea (FCD) – 9 5. Dwayne De Rosario (DC) – 8 Wondolowski Climbs into Three-Year Goal-Scoring Output List Through the first 11 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 6. Raul Diaz Arce – 46 in 1997-99 6. Roy Lassiter – 46 in 1997-99 8. Chris Wondolowski – 45 in 2010-12 8. Juan Pablo Angel – 45 in 2007-09 10. Roy Lassiter – 44 in 1998-2000 10. Taylor Twellman – 44 in 2005-07 The list of MLS leaders in goals since the start of the 2010 season follows: 1. Chris Wondolowski (SJ) – 45 2. Dwayne De Rosario (DC) – 33 3. Sebastien Le Toux (VAN) – 27 3. Alvaro Saborio (RSL) – 27 5. Thierry Henry (NY) – 25 6. Juan Pablo Angel (CHV) – 24


San Jose Earthquakes vs. Columbus Crew, May 19, 2012, 7:30 p.m. PT 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 22 goals through 11 games, the donated total for this season already stands at $5,500. 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 11 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. For more information about the remaining suites, visit www.sjearthquakes.com/newstadium, email suites@sjearthquakes.com or call 408-556-7700. Up Next: First California Clasico of Season Awaits The Quakes will have a short week after Saturday night’s date with the Columbus Crew to prepare for the first California Clasico of the 2012 season on Wednesday, May 23. Kick-off with the LA Galaxy at The Home Depot Center is slated for 7:30 p.m.

TONIGHT’S MATCH After winning the Lamar Hunt Pioneer Cup with an exciting 2-1 win over FC Dallas in which Justin Meram and Sebastian Miranda tallied their first MLS goals last Saturday, May 12, the Crew embarks on a two-game West coast trip. First up is tonight’s match against the San Jose Earthquakes at Buck Shaw Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif., followed by a midweek tilt at CenturyLink Field against the Seattle Sounders on Wednesday, May 23. San Jose (7-2-2, 23 pts.) enters tonight’s game on the heels of a 1-1 draw against Chivas USA on Sunday (May 13). The Earthquakes are led by 2010 Budweiser Golden Boot winner and two-time team MVP Chris Wondolowski, who leads this year’s MLS Golden Boot race with 11 goals. Head coach Frank Yallop can also count on former Crew forward Steven Lenhart who has scored four goals so far this season, and defender Steven Beitashour who leads the ‘Quakes in assists with five. Yallop will have to do without Honduran international Marvin Chavez who is out two-four weeks with a strained hamstring. Saturday’s match will be the lone regular-season meeting of 2012 between the Crew (3-4-2, 11 pts.) and the Earthquakes and the Black & Gold looks to improve on its 18-13-4 all-time record against San Jose. Last season, the Crew suffered a 3-0 loss at Buck Shaw Stadium on May 14 and tied the ‘Quakes, 0-0, at Crew Stadium on July 16.

Birchall went on to appear in 57 matches with 46 starts, netting one goal and three assists on his way to helping Los Angeles win two MLS Supporters’ Shields (2010-11), two Western Conference Championships (2009, 2011) and MLS Cup 2011.
