SANDY, Utah (AP) — Danny Hoesen scored his third goal in two games and Andrew Tarbell tied his career high with seven saves to help the San Jose Earthquakes to a 1-1 tie with Real Salt Lake on Saturday night.
Valeri Qazaishvili’s shot from the top of the box was stopped by a diving Nick Rimando, but Hoesen chipped in the rebound to make it 1-1 in the 64th minute.
Salt Lake’s Damir Kreilach opened the scoring in the 54th, heading home Corey Baird’s redirection of a corner kick by Albert Rusnak from the top of the 6-yard box.
San Jose (2-9-4), which won for the first time since May 12, snapped a six-game losing streak.
Real Salt Lake (7-7-1) had its six-game home win streak snapped.
Salt Lake came up empty on multiple chances: Baird chipped a one-on-one opportunity wide in the 11th minute, Rusnak pushed a free kick from 30-yards out just over the cross bar in the 29th, Tarbell made a diving stop of a first-timer from Baird in the opening minute of the second half and Marcelo Silva’s header off a corner kick rolled off the cross bar onto the top of the net.
