Quakes v Austin FC

The Earthquakes held on to their slim playoff hopes with a 4-0 win over first year expansion club Austin FC.  The first half was a scoreless draw but the home team. Chofis started the tally two minutes into the second half with his 47th minute strike.  Benji Kikanovic continued the scoring with his goal six minutes later, and in another six minute gap substitute Chris Wondolowski scored the third goal for the Quakes.  His 59th minute tally gives him 169 goals for his career with 4 games left in the 2021 regular season.  Carlos Fierro scored the dagger for the home team in the 85th minute to earn the victory.
