Simon Dawkins - Orlando - 061816

ORLANDO, Fla. – The San Jose Earthquakes scored two late goals to snatch a road point against Orlando City SC on an emotional Saturday evening in central Florida, where victims of the recent Orlando attacks were honored with a series of tributes. A pair of second half substitutes, midfielder Shea Salinas and forward Chad Barrett, each tallied their first goal of the season in the dramatic 2-2 draw.

In the 11th minute, the Earthquakes used strong link-up play to work the ball up field before forward Quincy Amarikwa chipped a cross in front of goal. Orlando City keeper Joe Bendik came out to grab the ball, but it slipped out of his hands. As Simon Dawkins attempted to put the rebound away, Bendik was just able to recover and corral the loose ball.
Seven minutes later, Matias Perez Garcia played a through ball into the box for Dawkins, who controlled the pass and blasted a shot goalward from an acute angle that tailed over the crossbar.
Quakes goalkeeper David Bingham made a clutch save in the 52nd minute to keep the match scoreless. Facing a breakaway from reigning Rookie of the Year forward Cyle Larin, Bingham stayed low to kick-save a hard shot out of play.
Orlando was able to break the deadlock in the 66th minute when Hines’ header off an Adrian Winter corner kick found the back of the net.
San Jose leveled the score-line with just five minutes remaining in regulation. Salinas sent a cross to Barrett, who powerfully headed the ball past Bendik and into the corner of the net.

Orlando then scored one minute into stoppage time what seemed to ultimately be the game-winner. Julio Baptista shot a line drive that Bingham was able to deflect but not keep out.
Minutes later, with the final whistle looming, Salinas shot and scored the late equalizer after a loose ball fell to him near the penalty spot (watch). It proved to be the match’s final kick of the ball.
