San Jose has looked much improved over the last 10 minutes of the half but still find themselves trailing at the break. The best chances have all come from set pieces sent in by Bobby Convey on a series of corner kicks and finally from a free kick that was almost sent in by Ike Opara.
The key for the Quakes is to continue their late midfield play that gave opportunities to create set pieces. Too many times rather than pressing forward San Jose has settled with back passes to defenders that inevitably led to interceptions that granted Seattle possession in dangerous spots.
Other than one Cornell Glen chance from a very poor Seattle chance the Quakes have not threatened from open play. But as long as Convey is in the game and Ike Opara is in the box San Jose will have their chances to gain at least an equalizer.
