MLS Saturday Recap

San Jose Quakes vs FC Dallas

FC Dallas had a bad start to the game on Saturday.
Keeper Daniel Vega made an own goal in the 26th minute to give San Jose the lead. He got a pass back from his defender and missed trapping the ball. It went in between his legs and into the goal.
They did, however, tied the game up the minute after the second half started. Chris Wondolwski scored in right inside the right post to tie the game 1-1.
San Jose was quick to get back on their feet by scoring again only seven minutes after. Magnus Eriksson got a pass from the right side of the goal, as there was no angle on it to score. He was standing top right of the box and pounded it into the goal.
FC Dallas got lucky as Francis Atuahene scored in the 66th minute. He got the ball top right of the box and managed to curve the ball with the outside of his right foot. The ball went around the defenders and left the keeper diving for the ball. It went in on the bottom left of the goal.
The game ended 2-2.
