Quakes edge Caps
SAN JOSE EARTHQUAKES 2, VANCOUVER WHITECAPS FC 1
VANCOUVER--Simon Dawkins' 60th-minute goal gave the San Jose Earthquakes a 2-1 win over Vancouver Whitecaps FC Friday at BC Place.
The Quakes (7-6-10, 31 pts) took a 1-0 lead when Quincy Amarikwa scored in the 14th minute and never looked back. Nicolas Mezquida took one back for Vancouver (8-11-6, 30) in stoppage time.
Amarikwa's goal, a header off Anibal Godoy's corner kick that was carried into the net by goalkeeper David Ousted, came two minutes after Dawkins hit the crossbar as San Jose dominated the early going.
Dawkins doubled San Jose's advantage in the 60th minute. Receiving a pass from Alberto Quintero, Dawkins pushed the ball past his defender and blasted his left-footed shot into the side netting.
Mezquida put Vancouver on the board in the 94th minute, with a close-range header from just off the back post. Kendall Waston set the table by flicking on a corner kick from Cristian Bolanos.
