MOST COMMENTED

[MLS] After beating Premier League reserve teams in its first two matches in London, San Jose polished off MLS opposition to finish its tour with three victories and no goals allowed.

The Quakes beat Colorado, 2-0, Friday with goals by Ryan Johnson and Quincy Amarikwa at Tottenham’s headquarters in the Chigwell section of London. Johnson scored in the 10th minute by running onto a through ball from Arturo Alvarez and lobbing a shot over Rapids keeper Matt Pickens, and Amarikwa – who had replaced Johnson with 15 minutes left – clinched the win by converting a pass from Cornell Glen.

Keeper Joe Cannon stymied Colorado on several occasions. He charged out to smother a point-blank shot from Omar Cummings in the first half and preserved the Quakes’ 1-0 lead in the 73rd minute stopping a Jeff Larentiwcz free kick and also blocking the follow-up shot. He recorded five saves as the Quakes tacked on a third shutout to victories against West Ham (2-0) and Tottenham (1-0) earlier in the week.

San Jose traveled home on Sunday and plays two more preseason games this week. It hosts Houston Wednesday at Kezar Stadium in San Francisco and plays Portland of USSF Division 2 Saturday at Buck Shaw Stadium.
