Aug. 12, 2012 at 1:01 AM

SAN JOSE, Calif., Aug. 12 (UPI) -- Steven Lenhart's goal late in stoppage time Saturday lifted the San Jose Earthquakes to a wild 2-1 victory over Seattle.

The Earthquakes appeared to have a 1-0 win wrapped up in the 92nd minute, but Seattle's Fredy Montero stunned them with an equalizer when he headed a loose ball past San Jose goalkeeper Jon Busch from close range.

Not be outdone, however, the Quakes answered seconds later.

On the last play of the game, Lenhart headed in a corner kick delivery from Shea Salinas, and San Jose (14-5-5) pulled out a victory to extend its lead in the Western Conference.

Simon Dawkins also tallied for San Jose.

The Sounders (10-6-7), meanwhile, saw their six-game MLS unbeaten streak snapped.
