Earthquakes vs. Revolution, MLS Scores: Quakes Top Revolution 2-1, Earn Second Straight Victory

After the San Jose Earthquakes began their 2011 campaign in rather sluggish form, the team has completely regrouped in their last few matches, taking down the New England Revolution by a score of 2-1 on Saturday at Buck Shaw Stadium.

Two second-half goals for the Quakes were enough to take care of business yesterday. Ellis McLoughlin netted his first of the season in the 71st minute while Bobby Convey’s 83rd minute free-kick strike was the eventual clincher. New England’s Chris Tierney cut the lead in half for New England in the 86th, but could not come up with another to tie the game.

With the win the Quakes moved up to eighth in the Western Conference in MLS with a record of 3-4-3 with 12 total points, 11 behind current leader the L.A. Galaxy, and a goal differential of zero.

Scoring Summary:
SJ — Ellis McLoughlin 1 (Chris Wondolowski 2) 71
SJ — Bobby Convey 1 (unassisted) 83
NE — Chris Tierney 1 (unassisted) 86

Misconduct Summary:
SJ — Bobby Convey (caution; Unsporting Behavior) 53
SJ — Steven Lenhart (caution; Reckless Foul) 57

Next up for the Quakes will be another U.S. Open Cup match against the Chicago Fire on Tuesday at Buck Shaw Stadium. Kick off is set for 7:30 PT that evening.
