SANTA CLARA (AP) — Alan Gordon’s goal in the 89th minute salvaged a 1-1 tie for the San Jose Earthquakes against Chivas USA on Sunday.

Gordon, a substitute in the 57th minute, headed in a perfectly placed cross pass off the left wing from rookie midfielder Sam Garza to tie it. San Jose (7-2-2) moved into sole possession of second place in the Western Conference, three points behind Real Salt Lake.

Chivas USA (3-6-1) withstood San Jose’s pressure for nearly the entire afternoon, trying to make a goal by rookie forward Jose Correa in the fourth minute stand up for the winner.

Correa, a 19-year-old Colombian signed by Chivas USA last month, curled a shot to the far post from 7 yards out for his first career MLS goal. Miller Bolanos set James Riley free down the right sideline, where Riley crossed in for Correa to finish.
