San Jose Earthquakes overcome LA Galaxy in Open Cup quarterfinal

The San Jose Earthquakes booked their spot in the U.S. Open Cup semifinals with a 3-2 win over LA Galaxy at Avaya Stadium on Monday.

Jelle van Damme had the visitors ahead within three minutes, but Chris Wondolowski ensured that the Quakes entered half-time even after driving a low shot from the edge of the 18-yard box to level the game.

The U.S. international then doubled his tally in the 51st minute, before Danny Hoesen gave the hosts a two-goal buffer just past the hour mark.

Andrew Tarbell's own-goal gave the Galaxy hope five minutes from time, but San Jose held on to the victory to book their place in the next round.
