MLS Conference Finals: San Jose Earthquakes Taking On Colorado Rapids

San Jose's Cinderella season continues this Saturday against the Colorado Rapids at Dick's Sporting Goods Park in Denver. San Jose advanced to the Eastern Conference Finals by becoming just the 2nd team in MLS history to win a two game tie after losing the first game at home. Bobby Convey and Chris Wondolowski led the Quakes to a 3-1 victory in New York, eliminating the Red Bulls in the process. Colorado, meanwhile, advanced past the Columbus Crew after scoring a late goal to force overtime before winning a penalty shootout.

Colorado and San Jose exchanged 1-0 home victories in their only regular season matchups this year, and both teams finished tied in the standings. Colorado earned home field advantage with a superior goal differential (+12 vs. +1). It means that San Jose will once again put one of the better road records in MLS on the line.
