EARTHQUAKES NOTES
Jamil walker's goal in the 80th minute ended his team's record drought at 402 minutes and lifted the San Jose Earthquakes to a 1-1 tie with the Los Angeles Galaxy. The season finale for both teams also was a playoff preview. They will meet Saturday in Los Angeles in the opener of the two-game aggregate Western Conference semifinals. San Jose (14-7-9, 51 points) finished atop the conference and will have home-field advantage for the first two rounds of the postseason. Los Angeles (9-12-9, 36 points) finished fourth. The Quakes and Galaxy have faced each other a total of 37 times in regular season, playoffs and U.S. Open Cup play. The Galaxy own a 23-10-4 overall series lead over the Earthquakes, and an 18-8-4 edge in MLS regular season games. After the 1-1 tie on Saturday, 11 of the last 13 matches between the Earthquakes and the Galaxy have been decided by one goal or have ended in ties. The Earthquakes and the Galaxy finished 2003 tied for the top defense in MLS, allowing just 35 goals each on the season. The Quakes also had a +10 goal differential, tying them with the Chicago Fire for the best in MLS. The Earthquakes have the lowest goals against average in MLS playoff history, allowing just 11 goals in 11 games for a 1.00 GAA. At home the Quakes have allowed just two goals in four playoff matches. The Quakes have also put together the league’s top goals against average on the road in the playoffs (1.29). Quakes forward Landon Donovan has been at his best in the MLS playoffs. In 2001, at age 19 he scored five goals and notched two assists in six games as the Quakes won their first MLS Cup. Last season, despite the Quakes' early exit, Donovan scored a goal and dished out an assist in two games against the Columbus Crew. In eight playoff games, the U.S. international has recorded 15 points and has averaged 0.75 goals per game, good for third all-time in playoff history. San Jose has experienced great success at Spartan Stadium in the postseason, compiling a 3-1 record at home and outscoring opponents 9-2 in those four matches. In 2001, the Quakes won two games at Spartan by a combined 7-0 margin. Quakes defender Jeff Agoos has won four MLS Cups during his eight-year career, the most of any player in league history and he has appeared in five MLS Cup Finals. He is also third in MLS postseason history in games played with 31 and third in minutes played with 2,804.
