[CONCACAF CHAMPIONS LEAGUE] The San Jose Earthquakes' flair for last-game dramatics carried over to the Concacaf Champions League as Alan Gordon's goal four minutes into stoppage time earned them a 1-1 tie with Toluca in the first leg of their quarterfinal series Tuesday night at Buck Shaw Stadium.

Preview: LA Galaxy-Tijuana
Preview: Sporting KC-Cruz Azul

With a date next week at La Bombonera, one of the most feared places to play in Mexico, the Quakes will nonetheless rue their missed chances take a lead into the second leg.

Raul Nava punished them for their waste, putting the Diablos Rojos ahead midway through the second half. Chris Wondolowski and Steven Lenhart both has chances for the Quakes, but Wondo was stopped by Alfredo Talavera, one of four keepers fighting for the three spots on Mexico's World Cup team, and Lenhart hit the woodwork.

-- The Quakes were playing without U.S. international centerback Clarence Goodson, who was suspended for picking up his second yellow card of the tournament in the final group game for time-wasting. Nava's goal ended San Jose's streak of 269 minutes without giving up a goal.

    After watching San Jose play, the only reaction I have is, what a bunch of thugs!

    I don't get the "Goonie" reference, here.
