SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Steven Lenhart scored two goals, including the tying score in second-half stoppage time as the San Jose Earthquakes rallied for a 3-3 draw with FC Dallas on Saturday night.

Lenhart headed home a ball flicked on by Alan Gordon, from a cross by Justin Morrow, five minutes into stoppage time to keep San Jose's unbeaten streak at Buck Shaw Stadium intact. The Earthquakes have gone 11-0-6 at their primary venue since Aug. 13, 2011.

Alan Gordon also scored for San Jose (18-6-7), which inched to three points ahead of Sporting Kansas City in the Supporters' Shield standings.

Blas Perez scored in the 37th and 72nd minutes for FC Dallas (9-12-10), and Matt Hedges added one in the 88th minute. Dallas lost an opportunity to tie Vancouver for the fifth and final Western Conference playoff spot, remaining two points back.
