Last Game vs. Montreal
Earthquakes 0, Montreal Impact 2; Sept. 20, 2014; Saputo Stadium in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
The San Jose Earthquakes lost 2-0 on the road against the Montreal Impact at Stade Saputo. The game was deadlocked for 80 minutes before the Impact broke through for two goals in the final 10 minutes to take the victory. After fighting through the first half, the Quakes had two great chances to take the lead midway through the second half. On the first, Shea Salinas found space on the left wing and curled a left-footed cross in for Atiba Harris, who powered a header that just missed the back post. Moments later, Sam Cronin had a shot from distance that seemed destined for the corner before whistling past the post. The Impact took the lead in the 81st minute through Jack McInerney. Marco Di Vaio’s shot was saved by Quakes goalkeeper Jon Busch, but the rebound deflected off McInerney into the net. With the game winding down, Dilly Duka scored the Impact’s second, maneuvering around a Quakes defender in the box before finding the far post side-netting for a 2-0 lead.
