SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) Victor Bernardez tied the game with his second goal in the 95th minute and the San Jose Earthquakes drew 3-3 with Real Salt Lake on Saturday night.

Bernardez jumped on a loose clearance off a last-ditch cross from Shaun Francis. Real Salt Lake goalkeeper Nick Rimando went up against Earthquakes forward Alan Gordon to try and punch it away from danger, but the ball barely made it out of the visitors' 6-yard box, allowing Bernardez to hammer it home. The final whistle sounded just after the ensuing kickoff.

The draw extended San Jose's unbeaten streak at Buck Shaw Stadium to 21 games.

Joao Plata scored his second goal in as many games for RSL, which had been bidding to go to 2-0-0 under new coach Jeff Cassar.

Kyle Beckerman and MLS rookie Luke Mulholland also scored first-half goals for the visitors

Chris Wondolowski also tallied for the Earthquakes.
