MOST COMMENTED

[MLS] Bobby Convey, Javier Robles and Omar Jessey scored the goals and Cornell Glen picked up two assists as the San Jose Earthquakes beat the Fresno Fuego (PDL) 3-2 Saturday night in Fresno.

Coach Frank Yallop changed nearly his entire lineup at halftime, by which time the Quakes led, 2-0, after playing most of their starters. Convey scored in the 37th minute from a Chris Leitch cross that was redirected by Glen, and Robles, a 25-year-old Argentine from Velez Sarsfield, connected a minute before halftime on the rebound of a Glen shot.

The Fuego got late goals from Rodrigo Vianna Ferreira and Mihailo Jovanovich to reduce the final score.

Defender Ike Opara, taken with the No. 3 overall pick out of Wake Forest where he is finishing this semester's studies, has trained the with the team the last few days and played the full game. After taking midterms this week he will rejoin the team in England.

The Quakes scrimmage the University of California-Berkeley on Monday before heading to London later in the week for a 10-day training visit to partner club Tottenham Hotspur.
