Earthquakes draw 2-2 with Swansea City

Steven Lenhart scored twice in the final 11 minutes to help the

MLS-leading San Jose Earthquakes to a 2-2 draw against English

Premier League side Swansea City in a friendly on Tuesday.

The Swans, who had goals from Danny Graham and Chico in the 41st

and 60th minutes, ha a win, a draw and a loss on their preseason

U.S. tour.

Lenhart, a second-half substitute, crashed home a beautiful

square pass from Shea Salinas to bring San Jose back within a goal

in the 79th. Then he headed home a curling cross from Rafael Baca

deep on the right wing to equalize in the 85th.

Graham, the Swans’ leading scorer last season with 12 Premier

League goals, took advantage of a botched back pass to give Swansea

the lead just before halftime.

Graham scooped up a loose ball after an attempted back pass from

San Jose defender Ramiro Corrales failed to connect with goalkeeper

David Bingham. Graham rounded Bingham and easily slotted the ball


Chico, a Spanish center back signed by Swansea City earlier this

month from Genoa, powered home a header in the 60th minute despite

Bingham’s efforts at the back post.

Leroy Lita had a couple of late chances for Swansea, but

couldn’t convert.
