COMMERCE CITY, Colo. — While Chris Wondolowski recorded a hat-trick for the San Jose Earthquakes in their 4-1 rout of the Colorado Rapids, Honduran Marvin Chavez managed to get into the scoring column for the winners on Saturday night.
Actually, the Honduran started the Quakes to the big win. Wondowlowski beat defender Marvell Wynne to Sam Cronin’s free kick and he headed it to Chavez, who finish from the top of the penalty area.
Then it was the Wondo show as the U.S. striker scored in the 12th, 51st and 84th minutes for San Jose (19-6-7, 64 points) as the visitors moved closer to clinching the Supporters Shield title. Colorado (31 points) fell to 9-19-4.
The last goal was Wondolowski’s 25th of the season, toppng Ronald Cerritos for the franchise all-time scoring record with his 62nd goal as an Earthquake while also moving the stirker within two goals of Roy Lassiter’s all-time MLS-best 27 goals in 1996.
