Earthquakes defeat Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 Wednesday
Burling scores lone goal in victory over Spurs' development side

The San Jose Earthquakes defeated Tottenham Hotspur's development side 1-0 on Wednesday at Spurs Lodge in Chigwell, London. Bobby Burling provided the lone goal in a match that saw the Earthquakes win their second match over a Barclays Premier League club in three days.
Spurs had an opportunity early to grab the lead as Danny Rose was sent through on goal, but his effort was sent high and over the bar.

Chris Wondolowski nearly helped give San Jose the advantage in the 35th minute, as he beat Andros Townsend near midfield and crossed to Quincy Amarikwa whose header was saved by Tottenham keeper, Ben Alnwick.

The best chance of the half for either side came on a free kick a few minutes later, as Simon Elliott sent his free kick into the area, where it found defender Bobby Burling's head. His snap header was kept out by Alnwick yet again.

The Quakes applied much of the pressure and finally broke through in the early moments of the second half, courtesy of Burling. Originally off of a corner, Elliott sent a ball in after an initial clearance and found Amarikwa, whose acrobatic header picked out Burling, who finished nicely.
