Wondolowski nets PK for his 100th goal; Earthquakes salvage 1-1 draw with 10-man Orlando City


SANTA CLARA, California — United States forward Chris Wondolowski became the ninth Major League Soccer player to score 100 goals as helped the San Jose Earthquakes salvage a 1-1 draw with a 10-man Orlando City on Sunday.

Wondoloski scored from a penalty in the 68th minute, equalizing for the Earthquakes. He placed the kick confidently to the left corner after catching his former teammate, goalkeeper Tally Hall, guessing the wrong way. Wondolowski pumped his fist enthusiastically and raced the ball back to kickoff, hardly stopping to celebrate with his teammates.

Brek Shea was shown a red card for a studs-up challenge in the 51st minute. But Orlando City took the lead when Cyle Larin drew a foul inside the edge of the box and Kaka smashed home the penalty for his fifth goal of the season.

In Sunday's other game, Vincent Nogueira and C.J. Sapong scored a quick pair of second-half goals as the Philadelphia Union beat the New York Red Bulls 2-0 for their second straight victory.

Nogueira opened the scoring in the 57th minute, tapping in Cristian Maidana's 20-yard strike with a back-heel flick from just outside the box. Sapong stunned the Red Bulls with another goal 5 minutes later.

The Union earned their first away win in seven games against the Red Bulls.

The Red Bulls squandered a dominant first half with three shots crashing off the post.
