Prolific Zardes scores as Galaxy, Earthquakes tie in California Clasico
Gyasi Zardes scored his sixth goal in his last six games and the Los Angeles Galaxy tied the San Jose Earthquakes 2-2 in the California Clasico on Friday night.
Los Angeles (9-4-7) controlled the ball for the majority of the game, but San Jose (6-8-6) scored twice on counter-attacks.
Zardes had a deflected shot land at his feet in the 29th minute and calmly buried it into the back of the net. Los Angeles' Omar Gonzalez sent in a low angled header off a corner kick in the 49th minute to tie it at 2.
Chris Wondolowski angled in a goal from the corner of the 6-yard box in the 18th minute for San Jose. He flicked a ball to Matias Perez Garcia - making his MLS debut - in the 31st minute for a 2-1 advantage.
Wondolowski has three goals and three assists in five games since returning from the World Cup.
