SAN JOSE EARTHQUAKES
The San Jose Earthquakes once again fell back into last place in the Western Conference despite posting a shutout for the fourth time in five games, playing the Colorado Rapids to a scoreless draw at Spartan Stadium on Saturday night. The Quakes have lost just once in their last seven games yet are still currently out of the playoff picture with 31 points from 22 games, a point behind the Dallas Burn and just four points adrift of joint leaders Kansas City Wizards and Los Angeles Galaxy.
