The only matchup from last week was Saturday’s Quakes 2-1 loss to Vancouver. Due to current travel restrictions from the Covid-19 pandemic the match was played at the Timbers home stadium in Portland. Carlos Fierro opened up the scoring for the Quakes in the 24th minute but that lead could not be kept thanks to a pair of Whitecaps goals in the second half from Ali Adnan in the 51st minute, and Tosaint Ricketts grabbing the go ahead goal 6 minutes later.
The Quakes currently hold the last playoff spot in eighth place and only one point behind fifth place. Their final regular season games against Real Salt Lake Wednesday and LAFC Sunday at home, and Seattle on November 8 on the road may hold the key to the team’s playoff fortunes.
