FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -- Chris Wondolowski scored his second
goal of the game on a header in the 83rd minute to give the San
Jose Earthquakes a 2-1 victory over the New England Revolution
on Saturday night.
New England midfielder Benny Feilhaber finished off a flurry of
shots to tie it in the 55th minute, but Wondolowski scored his
14th goal of the season at the left post, finishing off two nice
crossing passes from Sam Cronin and Simon Dawkins in front of
9,111 fans at Gillette Stadium.
San Jose (7-11-14) ended a nine-match (0-5-4) winless streak on
the road and won for the second time in its last 19 games
(2-7-10). New England (5-15-12) is 1-6-5 in its last 12 and
1-5-4 in its last 10 home games.
Feilhaber scored his fourth goal of the season with a leaping
right-footed shot, finishing off a series of shots, initially by
Ryan Guy, then a rebound by Milton Caraglio off the crossbar.
San Jose opened the scoring in the eighth minute on a bizarre
goal. Earthquakes goalkeeper David Bingham, making his MLS
debut, boomed a punt 75 yards down the field. Wondolowski ran
onto the ball past a Revolution defender on the right side and
scored. Bingham was credited with an assist.
