Quakes v Bay Cities FC (US Open Cup)

Fresh off a major coaching change for the Quakes and a last minute win for Bay Cities FC in the last round of the tournament both clubs were looking for a momentum shift.  What was “won on paper” turned out to be a reality as the top flight club made the upstart visitors who became familiar with the stadium come crashing down to earth and ending their run after two games with a resounding 5 to 0 win for the Quakes.

The game was no contest thanks to goals from Jack Skahan, Paul Marie, Cade Cowell from the penalty spot, Niko Tsakiris, and Ousseni Bouda.

Quakes v Crew

Despite very chippy play and a red card to Jamiro Monteiro in the 33rd minute and losing the lead, the Quakes come back and salvage a point with a 3-3 draw.

The Quakes got off to a 1-0 lead thanks to a Cristian Espinoza penalty kick at the  9th minute, but the Crew scored three answered goals thanks to Lucas Zelarayan in the 40th and 73rd minutes with Gyasi Zardes adding a tally as a substitute in the 68th minute.

The Quakes were able to come back and grab a point thanks to Francisco Calvo scoring in the 84th minute and six minutes into stoppage time.  Jan Gregus provided the assists on both goals.

Quakes v Red Bulls

The Quakes kicked off their 2022 season at home with most social distancing restrictions at PayPal Park lifted from the global pandemic. With their captain Chris Wondolowski retired and Jackson Yueill now leading the helm the team is now faced with forging a new identity and head coach Matias Almeyda in the last year of his deal–the mission for the team is postseason or bust.  The home opener was a disappointment with the Quakes losing 3 to 1 to the Red Bulls.

Patryk Klimala opened up the scoring in the waning minutes of the first half but Chofis was able to draw the equalizer at the 69th minute.  As of now, he is only expected to stay until June 30 unless his loan can be extended to the remainder of the season.

Unfortunately for Quakes fans, Omir Fernandez gave the Red Bulls the lead again in the 72nd minute with Tom Barlow scoring the insurance goal in stoppage time to give the visitors 3 points on the road.

The Quakes drew even with Dallas with each side scoring a goal.  The only scoring came in the first half with a goal from Chris Wondolowski in the 34th minute.  Dallas later tied the match eight minutes later with a tally from Jader Obrian.

With the result Wondo finishes his MLS career with 171 goals, as he announced his retirement to the fans post-game.

The Quakes finish their season with  a 10-13-11 record and 41 points–well out of the post-season.  The off-season will certainly mark new changes with a new roster scheduled to return on February 26.  The 2022 MLS season will run through Sunday October 9 with MLS Cup scheduled to be played on Saturday November 5–two weeks before the World Cup begins in Qatar.  The Quakes schedule will be announced at a later date and next season will  start a new chapter in the team’s history with someone waiting in the wings to inherit the mantle of The Eternal Captain Wondo.
