Earthquakes vs. Chivas USA, MLS Scores: Quakes End Unbeaten Streak With 2-0 Loss to Chivas

The San Jose Earthquakes headed south to Carson, CA Wednesday night to take on Chivas USA, looking to extend their current unbeaten streak to ten straight games. But the Chivas weren't having any of it, surging ahead with two second half goals to bury the Quakes by a score of 2-0 at the Home Depot Center. 

Both teams played to a first half tie with neither team getting to many shots on goal at all, but Chivas' Ben Zemanski blasted a laser from about 30 yards in the 64th minute past Jon Busch to give Chivas the lead. And as much as the Quakes tried the Chivas defense was stout, keeping them scoreless throughout the match. Nick LaBrocca netted the insurance goal for Chivas in the 84th minute after a beautiful pass from Francisco Mendoza found LaBrocca in space who easily scored to make it 2-0.

More bad new for San Jose, Steven Lenhart's second half yellow card will ensure him sitting out the Quakes next match due to yellow card accumulation.

With the loss the Quakes move to 5-6-6 on the season, seventh place in the Western Conference and 15 points shy of the leaders LA Galaxy. 

The Quakes will take on the Philadelphia Union on Saturday at Buck Shaw Stadium with kick off set for 7:30 pm PT. Coverage can be found on CSN Bay Area, KZSF 1370 and KDOW 1220.
