Result: Wondolowski's late winner secures San Jose win
Chris Wondolowski scores an 87th minute winner for the San Jose Earthquakes to secure a win over Chivas USA to keep their MLS playoff hopes alive.

Chris Wondolowski scored a late winner to secure victory for the 10-man San Jose Earthquakes against Chivas USA to boost their MLS playoff hopes.

The home side settled first in the game and Carlos Alvarez had the first effort at goal from just outside the box, but he could only blast his shot over the bar, under little pressure.

Chances were few and far between in the first half as the sides went into the break goalless.

Matthew Fondy should have opened the scoring for Chivas after the restart when he coasted in unmarked from a corner, but he could only head a tame effort at Jon Busch.

The Earthquakes responded to that threat and Cordell Cato almost found the net, but his volleyed effort was tipped over the bar by Dan Kennedy.

Minutes later, Kennedy came to the home side's rescue again when he made an excellent block with his feet to deny a low effort from Wondolowski.

In the 80th minute the Earthquakes were reduced to 10 men when Steven Lenhart was sent off for a challenge on Kennedy as he went up for the ball and picked up his second yellow card of the game.

However, this was not to stop San Jose as they found a winner in the 87th minute despite their numerical disadvantage as Wondowlowski tapped in from close range after Kennedy fumbled Alan Gordon's shot from distance.
