~ The San Jose Earthquakes’ Tommy Thompson scored in the final minute for a 1-0 edge over Sporting Kansas City Tuesday morning in Tucson, Arizona.

It was the Quakes’ second straight postseason win and shutout. This was their first taste of MLS action though.

Thompson now has two goals through two games. Him playing a full game, he was the only one, paid off especially this match.

Sporting Kansas City played 30 players in the game, separating them out. San Jose played 21 players amidst the regular first and second half.

Game notes: The Quakes play the second of three in Tucson Friday, facing Real Salt Lake at 10am.
