Earthquakes Advance to U.S. Open Cup Quarterfinals with 2-1 Win

SAN JOSE, CA.
The San Jose Earthquakes advanced to the Quarterfinals of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup Wednesday night at Avaya Stadium with a 2-1 win against Seattle Sounders FC. The victory came in Chris Leitch’s first game as the Quakes head coach.
Midfielder Shea Salinas gave the Quakes an early lead, finding the back of the net in the sixth minute. Seattle equalized moments into the second half, but substitute Danny Hoesen provided the game-winning goal in 84th minute on an assist from rookie Jackson Yueill.
The win marks the first time the Quakes have defeated the Sounders in U.S. Open Cup play since the current MLS Cup champions joined the league in 2009 (1-2 MLS, 2-3 all-time).
The Quakes will now face the LA Galaxy in the Quarterfinals at Avaya Stadium on Monday, July 10 at 7:15 p.m. The match will mark the third encounter between the Quakes and the Galaxy since May 27, with the second taking place this Saturday, July 1.
The Earthquakes now turn their attention to Saturday night’s California Clasico against the Galaxy at Stanford Stadium, presented by Sutter Health. The match will kick off at 7:15 p.m. and the first 10,000 fans will receive a California Clasico-themed scarf.
