Jahn is San Jose's newest Goonie

[MLS ROOKIE WATCH] Five rookies made their MLS debut over the weekend, including No. 1 SuperDraft pick Andrew Farrell in New England's 1-0 win at Chicago, but San Jose Supplemental Draft pick Adam Jahn stole the show with the tying goal and ball that led to the penalty kick (twice taken) that won the game for the Earthquakes over New York.

Injuries to Steven Lenhart and Alan Gordon have left the Quakes thin up front, and Jahn, a product of nearby Stanford, has taken advantage of the opportunity with appearances in the Quakes' first two games.

Jahn was at the far post to put away Sam Cronin's cross to tie the score against San Jose in the 83rd minute, and his shot was knocked down by Roy Miller for a handball. Chris Wondolowski converted the twice-taken penalty kick for the 2-1 win in stoppage time.

Jahn's heroics prompted Lenhart and Gordon to dub him the Quakes' newest Goonie, in reference to their last-minute heroics of last season that were instrumental in the club's run to the 2012 Supporters' Shield.

Wondo, himself a Supplemental Draft pick (41st in 2005), had a new nickname for the Quakes: Team Supplemental.
