The California men’s soccer team was blanked by the San Jose Earthquakes, 6-0, Tuesday afternoon in an exhibition at Golden Bear Soccer Field.  

“Today’s game was a great opportunity for our players to play against some of the country’s top players,” said Cal head coach Kevin Grimes. “I told the players after the game this was the best possible training they could get to play against professional players.”  

The Golden Bears trailed only 1-0 at the half with San Jose forward Dwayne DeRosario accounting for the only goal.  

The Quakes’ Landon Donovan entered the game in the second half and proceeded to score his team’s next three goals. DeRosario capped the scoring by adding two more goals of his own.  

“There’s no shame in having two great players like Donovan and DeRosario score hat tricks against you,” said Grimes. “These two players are as good a striker as you’re going to see in MLS.” 

“After the game, our players were happy and proud of the way they played. They would love to play the Earthquakes on a continual basis.”
