Match Report: LA Galaxy drop heartbreaker on the road to San Jose, 2-1

The San Jose Earthquakes were able to come from behind and grab a 2-1 victory in the California Clasico. It's a result that pushes the Earthquakes forward in the Western Conference, and has the Galaxy asking serious questions heading into the Independence Day holiday. 

The Earthquakes got the winning goal from Shea Salinas who came in as a sub and blasted one past Clement Diop. San Jose was able to pull level on a rare goalkeeper assist, with David Bingham finding Chris Wondolowski on a full sprint. Wondolowski was able to get enough space off his marker Jaime Villarreal with a nice dribble.
