San Jose Earthquakes suffer a shattering loss to New York City FC
On Saturday, the San Jose Earthquakes suffered a loss to New York City FC 2-1 at the Yankee Stadium.
Early on in the game, Quakes forward Marco Ureña made his first goal with the club when he connected in the 6th minute unassisted. However, New York City still came out undefeated with two goals made by Jack Harrison in the 10th minute and Tommy McNamara in the 67th minute. It didn’t help that the Quakes played the final 10 minutes down a man when defender Victor Bernardez received a red card.
This game continues the Quake’s unfortunate streak of losing during regular-season away games as of August of last season.
Earthquakes coach Dominic Kinnear said, “There was a lot of back and forth today. Lot’s of goal-mouth action as we expected today on this small field. Great start by us. And obviously we would have liked to have held onto the ball a little better and put some more pressure on them, but they came out and took advantage of a good chance.”
Forward Chris Wondolowski voiced his frustrations even more: “Not being able to come away with three points is frustrating because that’s our game plan. That’s what we want to do. We’re not coming here for a zero-zero draw, we’re coming here to win and to not do that is a bit frustrating and concerning.”
The Earthquakes will play again on April 8 against the Seattle Sounders FC at Avaya Stadium. Former Earthquakes goalkeeper Joe Cannon will be inducted into the team’s Hall of Fame during the Western Conference halftime.
