MLS Game Summary - Seattle at San Jose



(Saturday, Aug. 2, 2014)

From The Sports Network

Final Score: San Jose 1, Seattle 0

Santa Clara, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Yannick Djalo's goal in the 42nd minute was the difference as the San Jose Earthquakes claimed a 1-0 win over Seattle Sounders FC in the inaugural event at Levi's Stadium on Saturday.

Djalo's goal came after a nice ball over the top from Chris Wondolowski, while San Jose held off a second-half surge from Seattle to collect its second successive win.

The result leaves Seattle just two points clear at the top of the Western Conference ahead of second-place Real Salt Lake, while the Sounders have now lost three times in their last four fixtures.

Djalo was a handful for Seattle for much of the match and he went close with a shot from the top of the area in the fifth minute before netting the game's lone goal a few minutes prior to halftime.

Wondolowski started the move by chipping a ball in behind the Seattle defense from midfield that allowed Djalo to track it down and roll it underneath on- rushing goalkeeper Stefan Frei.

Frei had to scramble to keep out a right-wing cross from Djalo in the second half that nearly snuck inside the near post, while Djalo was played through the middle of the defense by Wondolowski in the 61st and curled a shot just wide of the left post.

From there, the Sounders played the majority of the game in San Jose's defensive third, but goalkeeper Jon Busch prevented the visitors from leaving the match with a point.

The goalkeeper tipped a header from Kenny Cooper over the crossbar in the 68th before he needed to parry a well-struck free kick from 30 yards to safety off the foot of Seattle's Gonzalo Pineda.

Seattle kept pushing and nearly found the equalizer five minutes from time when a corner kick was driven to the middle of the penalty area for Chad Barrett to head past Busch, only for Wondolowski to clear the ball off the goal line, preserving the win.
