Jack Skahan netted his first MLS goal in extra time to lift the San Jose Earthquakes into a 2-2 draw with Toronto FC on Saturday

But a tried clearance by Ifunanyachi Achara dispatched the ball back into the Toronto penalty box, and Skahan hammered Westberg in the 92nd minute. Ebobisse netted his 10th of the season to set the ‘Quakes ahead in the 26th minute, with San Jose seemingly running for its first victory away from home as the game wore on.

But after an ineffective opening 45 minutes, Toronto came out with more intent in the second half and eventually beat ‘Quakes goalkeeper J.T. Marcinkowski in the 71st minute on rapid-fire revenge.
