Quakes v Austin FC

In a decision day classic the Quakes play to a 1-1 draw against Austin.   Cristian Espinoza gave the Quakes the lead in the 17th minute only for Owen Wolff of Austin to draw even 15 minutes later.

A win would have given them a straight path to the MLS Cup playoffs while a tie would  have meant other results going their way.  With Sporting KC and Dallas winning a Portland victory would have meant elimination.

With the Timbers loss that means the Quakes get a playoff spot with Sporting Kansas City hosting the Wild Card game on Wednesday October 25 at 6:30pm.  A win will mean playing top ranked St. Louis.
