New York City FC 2, San Jose Earthquakes 1 | 2019 MLS Match Recap

Keaton Parks scored his first MLS goal and Alexandru Mitrita added his ninth three minutes later to put first-place New York City FC in front en route to a 2-1 victory over the San Jose Earthquakes on Saturday afternoon at Yankee Stadium. 

The two goals, coming inside the final six minutes of the first half, were enough to extend NYCFC's unbeaten run to seven matches and ensure they finish Week 28 atop the Eastern Conference standings. 

For the moment, the Cityzens moved six points in front of the second-place Philadelphia Union, who play later Saturday at home against LAFC.

Chris Wondolowski scored his MLS record-extending 158th career goal and 14th of the season, but the Quakes fell to their second consecutive defeat and fifth in their last seven games.

San Jose began the weekend in fifth in the Western Conference, and depending on other results later could end it as low as eighth and one place beneath the playoff line.
