Chris Wondolowski scored his ninth goal of the season as the San Jose Earthquakes beat the LA Galaxy 3-1 in the California Clasico.

Clarence Goodson gave San Jose the lead in the 53rd minute, heading home Perez Garcia's corner kick.

Amarikwa had a career year in 2014, reaching career highs in scoring, assists, starts and games. But the former Earthquakes draft pick was deemed surplus to requirements this season, given Chicago's number of quality attacking options.
