SANTA CLARA, California — Chris Wondolowski's goal in the 66th minute drew the San Jose Earthquakes even with the Los Angeles Galaxy for a 1-1 tie in the final California Clasico of the season on Sunday.

Jordan Stewart assisted on the tying score, slotting a pass through a group of Galaxy defenders to find Wondolowski open near the far post.

Omar Gonzalez opened the scoring in the 28th minute on a header off Stefan Ishizaki's corner. The Galaxy (14-5-9) dominated the Earthquakes (6-11-10) in the first half, outshooting them 14-1 overall.

After Jon Busch made a series of diving saves for San Jose, the momentum turned in the Earthquakes' favor when Robbie Keane missed a penalty kick off the post for the Galaxy in the 37th minute.

The rivalry was marked by physical play, resulting in nine yellow cards.
