MLS Game Summary - San Jose at FC Dallas|
(Saturday, July 7, 2012)
From The Sports Network
Final Score: San Jose 0, FC Dallas 0
Frisco, TX (Sports Network) - FC Dallas gained a point from its 0-0 draw with
the San Jose Earthquakes on Saturday, but the Hoops saw their winless streak
reach 13 games.
San Jose was reduced to 10 men in the 80th minute when Ramiro Corrales
received his second yellow card, but even then it was the Earthquakes who had
the better of the chances.
Dallas has now scored two goals in its last four games, and didn't trouble San
Jose goalkeeper Jon Busch too much on Saturday.
Chris Wondolowski must have thought he broke the deadlock in the 37th minute
for the Earthquakes when he chipped a shot beyond goalkeeper Kevin Hartman,
only for defender Hernan Pertuz to slide in at the last moment and clear the
ball off the goal line.
Corrales collected his second yellow card 10 minutes from time for a clumsy
challenge on Carlos Rodriguez, but it seemed to spark the visitors instead of
giving Dallas a chance.
Shea Salinas drove into the penalty area and had his shot take a slight
deflection off the foot of a Dallas defender, but Hartman reacted well and
kept the ball out of the net.
Wondolowski had another look at goal three minutes from time when he beat the
offside trap and was in on Hartman, who was able to keep out the low shot.
San Jose remains on top of the Western Conference but is only one point clear
of second-place Real Salt Lake.
