SANTA CLARA, Calif. – The San Jose Earthquakes made sure FC Dallas’ road renaissance was short-lived.
Dallas came to California riding off their first road victory of the season, but San Jose used first-half goals from Marvin Chávez and Alan Gordon to put an end to that streak with a 2-1 victory on Wednesday at Buck Shaw Stadium.
The Quakes survived a 94th-minute penalty-kick miss from defender Jair Benítez, who pushed his attempt just high and over the crossbar with a road point begging to be taken.
