Last Game vs. Dynamo
Earthquakes 1, Houston Dynamo 0; May 5, 2015; BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston, Texas
The San Jose Earthquakes used a goal by forward Adam Jahn and a clean sheet to earn three points on the road against the Houston Dynamo. San Jose got on the board in the 54th minute. Midfielder Matias Perez Garcia took a quick free kick, catching several Dynamo defenders off guard. The set piece was driven from the right side of the pitch to the six-yard box and was firmly headed into the back of the net by forward Adam Jahn, marking his first goal since May 8, 2013, against Toronto FC. Just three minutes later, Houston seemed primed to level the score when midfielder Oscar Boniek Garcia drew a penalty. However, Bingham came through in the clutch once again, saving the set piece driven low and to his left by forward Giles Barnes. The Earthquakes continued their excellent run of play defensively for the remainder of the match, preserving the clean sheet and departing BBVA Compass Stadium with three points.
