FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Valeri Qazaishvili scored twice and the San Jose Earthquakes snapped a 12-game winless streak with a 3-1 victory over FC Dallas on Saturday night.
Qazaishvili opened the scoring for the Quakes (3-12-7) in the 19th minute, hurdling Jesse Gonzalez after the goalkeeper came off his line but failed to stop Shea Salinas's long ball. Qazaishvili then outmaneuvered defender Matt Hedges before finishing from near the end line.
Dynamo forward Alberth Elis darted down the right side of the field before flicking a pass across the box, where a sliding Mauro Manotas pecked the ball into the back of the net with his right foot.
For 20 minutes last Saturday, it appeared the Dynamo had earned their second victory of the season since a 4-0 win in their March 3 Major League Soccer opener.
