Wondolowski gets 142nd career goal, Earthquakes win at home

SAN JOSE, Calif. — Chris Wondolowski scored his 142nd career goal on a go-ahead score in the 62nd minute and the San Jose Earthquakes beat Western Conference leader FC Dallas 4-3 on Wednesday night to snap an 11-game home winless stretch.

San Jose (4-14-8) won at home for the first time since March 18th, ending the longest home winless stretch in MLS history. Wondolowski is three goals shy of tying Landon Donovan for the MLS record.

The Earthquakes led 2-1 at halftime — with two goals from Valeri Qazaishvili — before the teams traded four goals in an 11-minute span early in the second half. Four of Qazaishvili’s eight goals this season have come against FC Dallas.

Halftime substitute Santiago Mosquera tied it at 2 for FC Dallas (13-6-7) in the 51st with his first goal since April 29th. Dominique Badji scored his ninth goal of the season, the second with Dallas, in the 58th to tie it at 3.
