Bekker nets equalizer, 10-man Impact tie Earthquakes 1-1
SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) Kyle Bekker scored his first MLS goal in the 65th minute and the 10-man Montreal Impact played the San Jose Earthquakes to a 1-1 tie Wednesday night.
Bekker caught goalkeeper David Bingham leaning the wrong way and squeezed a shot inside the near post. It was Bekker’s first game with the Impact after being traded from FC Dallas on July 16.
Ambroise Oyongo received a red card in the 49th minute for Montreal (9-11-6) after a studs-up challenge of Matias Perez Garcia.
Chris Wondolowski opened the scoring in the 35th with his 14th goal of the season for San Jose (11-11-7). Quincy Amarikwa had the ball poked away at the top of the box and Wondolowski calmly rolled in the loose ball. Wondolowski nearly scored again from distance in the 37th and had a sliding shot roll just wide in the 69th.
Impact goalkeeper Eric Kronberg made his third start of the season.
