Earthquakes break out of slump in big way

[MLS: Week 20] The San Jose Earthquakes snapped their five-game winless streak with a 5-1 win over the Chicago Fire. The five goals were more than the Quakes had scored in their previous six games. Portuguese international winger Yannick Djalo had a goal and three assists, while Chris Wondolowski and Cordell Cato both had a goal and an assist.

The game marked the return to Buck Shaw Stadium of former San Jose coach Frank Yallop. The Quakes had a different look for Yallop's days in charge of the Quakes as neither Bash Brother, Stephen Lenhart or Alan Gordon, dressed. Lenhart was unavailable with a knee injury.

The Quakes came into the game with MLS's worst offense but scored five goals in a span of 39 minutes, beginning with Shea Salinas' blast from the left wing seconds before the end of the first half.
