~ One of the San Jose Earthquakes’ pickups brought home the California Clasico Cup Vegas style, in a 1-0 win over Los Angeles Saturday.

Like a regular Goonie, in the 89th minute, Garcia got the ball past keeper Clement Diop after he made a save on Tommy Thompson’s try. Garcia got his first goal after joining the team 12/13/16. Real Salt Lake made him available for the Expansion Draft.

The 2017 inaugural rivalry took place before 4,000 fans.

San Jose made eight subs in the second half spread out four different times, as they continued their undefeated preseason (4-0-1). The Galaxy made eleven, with a pair and then nine at once.

It was Los Angeles’ first loss (0-1-1).

Game notes: Last year, it was the Galaxy with the 1-0 preseason win. The Quakes continue training when they face the Reno 1868 FC next Saturday at 12:30pm. It will take place in Reno, a first for a major league team there.
