Riding a hot start, the Earthquakes returned home to Buck Shaw Stadium to face Vancouver Whitecaps FC. After a breakdown in their solid yet new defense put them down 1-0, the Quakes scored three in the second half to swamp the visiting Whitecaps.
My least favorite former US Men's National Team player (no mean feat) Jay DeMerit captains the Whitecaps:
Jon Busch makes a nice diving save:

The Quakes are off to a 4-1 start, their best in team history. I'm away for the next home game, so I won't see them again until their May 2nd match against D.C. United.
