Speaking of Parks, this will be a game he won’t be forgetting for a while.
The Texan netted his first MLS goal to equalize on 40’, finishing off a move he started with that driving run through the center of the Earthquakes midfield.
While there was a stroke of fortune that the ball rebounded back in his direction, Keaton earned that good luck by following up and ensuring that he forced the ball over the line after Gary Mackay-Steven was denied by the San Jose goalkeeper.
It wasn’t just the goal, Keaton was an influential presence through, dropping in to add an extra man to the defense and getting forward too with regularity.
In Dome’s words: “It’s very important for us to have a player like Keaton - he played amazing. When we need him to play no.6, no.8, no.10, he can do it."
