Toronto FC defeats San Jose Earthquakes 3-1
Ouch! I was so looking forward to the Quakes game Saturday because I hadn't covered a game since their opener, either because of FC Gold Pride games or Cal Rugby. They were on a win-tie streak too. Unfortunately that streak ended. The score doesn't really show how incredibly exciting the game was. The 3rd goal was in stoppage time after goalkeeper Joe Cannon joined the playing field. But... Toronto keeper is none other than Cal alum Stefan Frei, so I was happy to see him have a good game!
Was still a great game to shoot, and to make it more fun, my mom and grandma came too. I think my mom follows me and where I am on the field more than the ball, but that's a mom for ya! =)
They play again Wednesday so I'm redirecting my enthusiasm for that game! Go Quakes!

*On another note, big props to USA soccer defeating Turkey for the first time in history, in the friendly send-off series. I wasn't shooting it, but I was cheering them on from the TV. Safe travels and good luck at World Cup!!
