    Danny Hoesen scored twice in the first 12 minutes and the San Jose Earthquakes beat Sporting Kansas City 4-1 on Saturday night.

    Hoesen opened the scoring in the sixth minute, settling Aníbal Godoy’s long pass between a pair of defenders and slipping past them for a close-range finish. Six minutes later, Hoesen broke free on Jackson Yueill’s pass and slotted home a right-footed shot.

    The Earthquakes (2-5-0) took a 3-0 lead on the first sequence following the second-half kickoff capped by Shea Salinas’ curling chip shot.

    Magnus Eriksson added a fourth goal in the 61st minute after his pass was deflected back at him by a Sporting KC defender.

    Felipe Gutiérrez converted a penalty for Sporting KC (2-2-3) in the 66th minute.
