Earthquakes Vs. Revolution, MLS Scores: Chris Wondolowski Paces Quakes To 1-0 Victory [VIDEO]

San Jose Earthquakes forward Chris Wondolowski picked up in 2012 right where he left off in 2011 in the team's season-opening match against the New England Revolution Saturday night. And behind a clean sheet from goalkeeper Jon Busch Wondolowski netted the match's lone goal, leading the Quakes past the revos by the score of 1-0 at Buck Shaw Stadium.

Wondo was hungry early in the match, striking his first goal of the season in the 15th minute when a New England tried to play a ball across the field in their own half, ending up with San Jose's Shea Salinas. Salinas quickly dumped it off to Wondolowski, who's beautiful one- touch from outside the penalty box extended his MLS-leading scoring streak to six straight games dating back to last season.


As for keeper Jon Busch, his defense made his night very easy for him after having to make only one official save and having only six shot attempts come his way all night. It was San Jose's first home opening win since the club rejoined MLS as an expansion side in 2008.
