Minnesota plays Earthquakes to draw
SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — San Jose's Daniel de Sousa Britto had six saves and Dayne St. Clair turned away five shots for Minnesota United in a 1-1 draw on Saturday night.
Minnesota United (9-8-9) jumped on top in the 4th minute when Teemu Pukki took a pass from Emanuel Reynoso and scored his third goal in his seventh career appearance.
Cade Cowell pulled San Jose (9-9-9) even in the 16th minute, using an assist from Jackson Yueill to score for the first time this season.
San Jose snapped a seven-match winless streak in the series with a 2-0 victory late last season. The only other time the Earthquakes blanked Minnesota United was a 1-0 victory in 2017 in the first match-up.
Minnesota United was coming off back-to-back shutout victories in regular-season play — a first for the club.
Minnesota United will host the New England Revolution on Saturday. San Jose travels to play D.C. United on Saturday.
