Earthquakes handle Sounders
SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Walter Martinez scored his first MLS goal, and the San Jose Earthquakes made it hold up for a 1-0 win against the Seattle Sounders on Saturday.
Martinez, a 31-year-old midfielder who joined San Jose prior to this season, broke open a scoreless match in the 48th minute. The former Honduran international collected a ball from teammate Steven Lenhart, cut inside Seattle defender DeAndre Yedlin and fired from 12 yards.
Weber, a former Earthquake, joined Seattle on loan from Phoenix FC of the USL Professional Division earlier this week after veteran backup Marcus Hahnemann was ruled out due to a hamstring injury.
