Philadelphia dominated possession, created chance after chance, and out shot San Jose by a margin of 10-3. Danny Mwanga was all over the field, constantly threatening the Quake defense. But Jon Busch came up huge on multiple tough, tough saves, and a second added time goal gave San Jose a victory they didn’t do much to earn.
The player of the game is undoubtedly Busch, who made 6 very difficult saves that improbably kept San Jose in the match. His hold on the starting position is surely even stronger after his 2nd half performance. On a different day Philadelphia could have easily ended up for four or even five goals, as San Jose’s defense gave Philadelphia’s attackers space to operate all afternoon. But critical defensive lapses at the end of each have gave Cornell Glen and Arturo Alvarez the space to calmly slot home the goals that earned San Jose three critical road points.
