Santa Clara, CA (Sports Network) - The San Jose Earthquakes snapped a six-
match winless run on Wednesday after Chris Wondolowski scored in the 81st
minute to lift the 'Quakes to a 2-1 win over Toronto FC at Buck Shaw Stadium.
San Jose once again fell behind to a first-half goal from Toronto's Justin
But the club rallied in the second 45 minutes as Adam Jahn equalized in the
48th and Wondolowski netted his fifth goal of the campaign to snatch all three
points for his side, which had drawn four of its last five games.
Toronto entered the contest on a seven-game winless skid, but TFC started well
as a long ball from midfield fell to Braun inside the penalty area and he
volleyed home from seven yards.
Shea Salinas should have tied the match for San Jose just before the break,
but he fired over the net from six yards after a good ball from Wondolowski.
The hosts were on level terms in the 48th with Wondolowski once again setting
up the chance, only this time Jahn made the most of the chance as he danced
past a defender inside the box and beat goalkeeper Joe Bendik.
Wondolowski saw a deflected shot go narrowly wide 15 minutes from time, but he
got another chance in the 81st from a corner kick.
Marvin Chavez swung the ball to the near post for Walter Martinez, whose
glancing header found Wondolowski at the top of the six-yard box for a volley
that the striker was never going to miss.
