The San Jose Earthquakes fell to the Portland Timbers 2-0 on Friday night at Providence Park.
Consecutive yellow cards to midfielder Darwin Ceren in the 36th and 37th minute left the Earthquakes a man down for the remainder of the match. Despite the man disadvantage for nearly an hour, the Quakes surrendered just one goal in 90 minutes before a second was tallied in stoppage time as they pushed for an equalizer. Goalkeeper David Bingham made a season-high six saves during the match.
The San Jose Earthquakes advanced to the Round of 16 in the 2017 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup Wednesday night with a 2-0 win against the San Francisco Deltas at Avaya Stadium. Less than four minutes into his professional debut, Earthquakes’ No. 6 overall 2017 SuperDraft selection Jackson Yueill gave the Quakes an early lead. Two minutes later, midfielder Cordell Cato doubled the score to secure the victory.
