L√≥pez scores 2 more goals; Earthquakes beat Austin FC 4-3
AUSTIN, Texas -- Javier 'úChofis'Ě L√≥pez scored twice - his second consecutive multi-goal game - and the San Jose Earthquakes rallied to beat Austin FC 4-3 on Saturday night.
Chofis, who netted his first MLS hat trick in a 4-3 loss to Real Salt Lake on Wednesday, put away the rebound of his own shot to cap the scoring in the 63rd minute.
Austin's Sebasti√°n Driussi opened the scoring in the sixth before Marcos L√≥pez scored for San Jose (7-9-9) to make it 1-1 in the 17th minute.
Jon Gallagher, from point-blank range, tapped in a cross by Alexander Ring in the 35th and Ring scored on a roller from outside the area to give Austin (5-16-4) a 3-1 lead just before halftime. Cristian Espinoza scored for the Earthquakes in the 49th and, following a handball in the area by Ring, Chofis converted from the penalty spot in the 58th to make it 3-3.
Ring was shown another yellow card in the 65th minute and Austin played a man down the rest of the way.
