           === Wondo ties scoring record as 'Quakes draw Timbers ===
 
 Portland,  OR (Sports Network) - Chris Wondolowski converted a penalty kick in
 the  24th  minute Saturday to  tie Major League Soccer's single-season scoring
 record,  but he was unable to produce another goal as the San Jose Earthquakes
 were held to a 1-1 draw by the Portland Timbers at Jeld-Wen Field.
 
 Wondolowski's  strike, his  27th of  the season,  sees him  go level  with Roy
 Lassiter  of the 1996 Tampa Bay Mutiny for most goals in a season, putting the
 finishing touches on a banner regular season that saw the 29-year-old lead the
 'Quakes to the MLS Supporters' Shield with 66 points on the campaign.
 
 The  opener  came midway through  the opening  period when Steven Lenhart went
 around  Donovan Ricketts, but the Timbers 'keeper quickly tracked back and put
 in a sliding challenge that brought down the 'Quakes striker in the box. There
 was  no question as  to who would take the ensuing penalty kick as Wondolowski
 hammered home the shot to Ricketts' right.
 
 San Jose held the lead until the 67th minute when Jon Busch conceded a rebound
 off  of  a shot from close  range. Bright Dike  was arriving to stuff home the
 loose ball for his fifth goal of the season.
 
 Portland's  season comes  to an end as the Timbers finish their sophomore term
 in MLS with 34 points in 34 games.
 
 San  Jose advances to  the postseason as the top overall seed and will take on
 the  winner  of Thursday's  play-in game between  the fourth-place Los Angeles
 Galaxy and the fifth-place Vancouver Whitecaps.
