Doyle, who recorded his first multi-goal game in his MLS career, scored his first off a corner kick by Richard Mulrooney after being left unmarked inside the box in the 21st minute.

The Earthquakes outshot the MetroStars, 9-3, in the first half keeping goalkeeper Mike Ammann busy from the start.

The MetroStars played a much better second half, outshooting their opponents, 9-2, but where unable to put one past Cannon (six saves) who saved solid scoring attempts by Lothar Matthaus in the 71st minute and Orlando Perez in the 85th minute.

Lineup: Ammann, Petke, Corrales, Shak, Khakpour, Matthaus, Villegas, Chung, Kelly, Comas, Valencia. Subs: Perez, Da Silva.
