SANTA CLARA (AP) — Khari Stephenson scored the tying goal in the 52nd minute Saturday night, and the San Jose Earthquakes kept the Seattle Sounders winless with a 2-2 draw.
Brad Evans and O’Brian White each scored first-half goals for Seattle (0-2-2), which was playing without injured star forward Fredy Montero.
Evans connected from point-blank range in the 17th minute off a feed from Mauro Rosales, and White used a diving header to send home Steve Zakuani’s floating cross in the 42nd minute.
Newly acquired Earthquakes midfielder Simon Dawkins, on loan from Tottenham Hotspur of the English Premier League, scored his first MLS goal in the 32nd minute to keep San Jose (1-1-1) close. Stephenson came on after halftime to score the equalizer.
