Santa Clara, CA (Sports Network) - The San Jose Earthquakes extended their lead atop the Western Conference on Sunday, scoring on three direct free kicks en route to a 4-0 win over Chivas USA at Buck Shaw Stadium.

Victor Bernardez, Simon Dawkins and Ramiro Corrales popped up with the goals that helped San Jose (16-6-5) improve to 53 points on the season, seven points clear of second-place Real Salt Lake.

Bernardez opened the scoring in the 11th minute, curling a free kick from distance around the wall and into the lower corner.

The lead was doubled six minutes before the break when Chris Wondolowski played in Dawkins, who was able to get a quick shot off under pressure and fire it past the on-rushing Dan Kennedy.
