  DID YOU KNOW?
  • San Jose has already clinched the 2012 Supporters' Shield.
  • 'Quakes striker Chris Wondoloski is one goal short of tying the MLS record for goals in a season.
  • This is the third meeting for these two sides this year. The Timbers won 2-1 on July 3 at Jeld-Wen Field. Then Chris Wondolowski scored twice to pull the Earthquakes back into a 2-2 draw Sept. 22 at Buck Shaw Stadium.
  • The Timbers not only claimed the Cascadia Cup with their 1-0 win at Vancouver, they also avoided becoming the fifth team in MLS history to go an entire season without winning on the road.
  • For a second consecutive match, Marvín Chavez both scored a goal and added an assist, playing a part in both 'Quakes goals against LA on Sunday.
