- In their last regular season meeting, the Quakes took the 3 points with a 3-1 victory in front of 50,000 at Stanford Stadium thanks to goals from Chris Wondolowski, Cordell Cato, and Clarence Goodson. Wondo and Cato are off at Gold Cup now, and the Quakes will have to get some scoring from other places in tonights game.
- In the Open Cup, the Galaxy took an ugly 1-0 victory where both teams fielded their “B-Squads,” but it was a disappointing performance to lose at home for the Quakes nonetheless.
