Earthquakes Capture Sacramento Cup

San Jose wins 6-5 in a penalty kick shootout

The
San Jose Earthquakes earned a 6-5 penalty-kick shootout win after
battling Chivas USA to a scoreless draw for 90 minutes in the inaugural
Sacramento Cup hosted at Raley Field.

During
the penalty kicks, both sides converted their first five attempts.
Chris Wondolowski, Ramiro Corrales, Javier Robles, Ryan Johnson and
Ramon Sanchez lined up for San Jose's five while Gerson Mayén, Carlos
Borja, Maicon Santos, Michael Umaña, and José Macotelo made good for
Chivas USA. Jason Hernandez scored the decisive tally after Busch's
save on Chivas USA goalkeeper Dan Kennedy to win the Sacramento Cup.

In
a largely defensive stalemate, both teams kept a close eye on the area,
allowing only Chukwudi Chijindu's slow-rolling dribbler that was easily
scooped up by Busch..

Beitashour
and Johnson picked up cautions for San Jose. Yamith Cuesta also drew
yellow for Chivas USA after tussling with Johnson in the 82nd minute.

Chivas
USA will face FC Dallas on Saturday, June 26, at 7:30 The Home Depot
