MLS Game Summary - New England at San Jose



(Saturday, March 10, 2012)

From The Sports Network

Final Score: San Jose 1, New England 0

Santa Clara, CA (Sports Network) - Chris Wondolowski picked up in 2012 right where he left off in 2011 as he nabbed the lone goal for the San Jose Earthquakes in their 1-0 win over the New England Revolution on Saturday.

Wondolowski finished tied with Dwayne DeRosario atop the 2011 Major League Soccer scoring chart with 16 goals on the season, and it did not take him long to open his scoring account in the 2012 season as the 29-year-old picked up a through ball from Shea Salinas in the 15th minute and slotted a shot past Matt Reis on a breakaway to get San Jose off to a flying start in the new year.

It was the first time that the Earthquakes have won their home opener since rejoining MLS as an expansion side in 2008. The 'Quakes lost their last four home openers by a combined score of 6-0.

New England has also started the new season in similar fashion to how it ended the 2011 campaign, but on more sour note. The Revs ended the 2011 season tied with Vancouver Whitecaps FC for the fewest points in the league after losing five of their last six contests.

Saturday's result is a debilitating one for Jay Heaps and New England. The former Revolution star was appointed as head coach in offseason to replace Steve Nicol, receiving the daunting task of trying to lift the club out of the MLS cellar. Things won't get much easier for the Revs as they will remain on the road for a clash against Sporting Kansas City at Livestrong Sporting Park.

Wondolowski and San Jose will look to continue their good form when they square off against the Houston Dynamo on March 17.
