Tuesday, July 31, 2012
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) -- Steven Lenhart scored twice in the final 11 minutes to help the MLS-leading San Jose Earthquakes to a 2-2 draw against English Premier League side Swansea City in an international friendly Tuesday night.
The Swans, who had goals from Danny Graham and Chico in the 41st and 60th minutes, went 1-1-1 on their preseason U.S. tour.
Lenhart, a second-half substitute, cashed home a beautiful square pass from Shea Salinas to bring San Jose back within a goal in the 79th. Then he headed home a curling cross from Rafael Baca deep on the right wing to tie it in the 85th.
Graham, the Swans' leading scorer last season with 12 goals in EPL play, took advantage of a botched back pass to give Swansea the lead just before halftime.
Chico put the Swans ahead 2-0 with a header in the 60th minute.
