Manteca Bulletin - - Sports -

SAN JOSE (AP) — Adama Diomande had two goals, Joao Moutinho scored in stop­page time and Los Angeles FC ral­lied past the San Jose Earth­quakes 4-3 on Satur­day night.

Diomande, who signed with LAFC on May 2 and made his first start against San Jose, has three goals in three MLS ap­pear­ances.

Moutinho, a 20-year-old rookie de­fender, kicked in his first MLS goal from just in­side the penalty area to give LAFC (7-4-3) a 4-3 lead in the sev­enth minute of in­jury time.

San Jose’s Va­leri Qaza­ishvili opened the scor­ing in the 11th minute, putting away a left-footed vol­ley off an arc­ing en­try by Danny Hoe­sen.

Diomande and Steven Beitashour an­swered with goals in the 15th and 19th min­utes, re­spec­tively, to give LA a 2-1 lead.

Two goals by Chris Won­dolowski, in the 52nd and 63rd, put San Jose (2-93) back in front be­fore Diomande scored from point­blank range in the 90th minute. Beitashour, from the left side, sent an en­try to­ward the far post where Walker Zim­mer­man played a slid­ing cross to Diomande for the empty-net fin­ish .

LAFC snapped a fourgame win­less streak.

The Earth­quakes have lost four in a row — their long­est such streak since 2015 — and are win­less in their last five games.
