Walter Martinez and Chris Wondolowski each scored a goal to help lift the San Jose Earthquakes over FC Dallas 2-1 on the final game of the 2013 regular season.

FC Dallas managed to get a late stoppage-time goal from defender Stephen Keel to help end Schellas Hyndman's six-year tenure as manager of the club.

San Jose got things started in the 27th minute from Martinez. San Jose defender Justin Morrow sent a pass along the left flank, where Martinez picked it up and played a dangerous cross that skipped past Dallas goalkeeper Chris Seitz, who was caught going for Steven Lenhart's dummy run in front of the goal.

Wondolowski added his 11th goal of the season in the 57th minute when he sent a hard driven ball by Seitz. He was assisted by Lenhart and Shea Salines on the play.

The game was highlighted by the exit of the last MLS original, midfielder Ramiro Corrales of San Jose. Corrales announced his retirement for after the season earlier this year and he was carried off the field in the 72nd minute.

Dallas pushed several times late in the game for their first goal. In the 78th minute, Andrew Jacobson would try a shot from outside the penalty box only to be denied by San Jose keeper David Bingham. Blas Perez would also have a go on goal moments later but the San Jose net minder was equal to the task.

Keel would help get Dallas on the board in stoppage time when Perez took a ball on the right sideline and then played a chip into the box right to the head of Keel.

The loss would push Dallas to 11-12-11 on the season.
