Earthquakes Finish With Another Draw 1-1 vs Timbers

So much frustration was pretty much summed up tonight, when the Quakes tied 1-1 with the Timbers. This season hasn’t been terrible, but compared to last, the Quakes are seemingly struggling a little bit. That struggle was almost highlighted by a loss tonight, but the struggling Quakes were able to limp out of this game with a 1-1 tie after playing in stoppage time.

As usual, the game was well fought, but the Quakes just couldn’t seem to find their offense. Jon Busch was fantastic as usual, but Chris Wondolowski, who never came out, wasn’t delivering with the powerful kicks that those goaltenders fail to stop over and over again. The possession was pretty equal, but San Jose had more open looks, but just couldn’t connect or strike on any of them. It was a pretty tough task, considering that Wondo only got 1 shot on goal. Even Steven Lenhart got more than him.

All hope seemed lost until Adam Jahn scored 92 minutes into the game in the lower left box of the goal. It was a good site for the Quakes because Ricketts, the Timbers’ goalie was pitching a shutout up until that point. The only other goal in the game came 58 minutes into it, and it was scored by Diego Valerie with a beautiful shot from the center. The Quakes were lucky to have tied this game, and aren’t seeming to find a solution to their problems.
