San Jose Humiliates RSL 5-0
(KUTV) The two big dogs in the Western Conference went toe-to-toe
Saturday night and San Jose emerged as the far superior squad, shutting
out RSL 5-0.
The game was sloppy for RSL and Kyle Beckerman's
red card in the 58th minute seemed to take all the fight out Jason
For San Jose, Chris Wondolowski scored a hat trick
and the Earthquakes beat RSL for the third time this season. The 5-0
shutout was the second-worst loss in franchise history. Only a 6-0 loss
to New York in 2006 was worse.
The game got out of control when
Beckerman earned a red card for retaliation on a foul that was never
called against teammate Javier Morales.
The two teams pushed and
shoved, but it was clear that RSL was losing its cool. Alan Gordon
scored in the 63rd minute to make it 2-nil Earthquakes. Then Wondo
scored on a cross in the 72nd minute, giving San Jose a 3-0 lead.
Two more San Jose goals in the 79th and 80th minute put the match out of reach ending a miserable night for RSL.
