SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Yannick Djalo scored a goal and added three assists to lead the San Jose Earthquakes to a 5-1 win over the Chicago Fire on Wednesday night.

San Jose (5-8-5) ended a five-game winless streak in which it scored two goals. Chicago (3-5-11) had allowed just three goals in four games.

The Earthquakes took a 1-0 lead just before the break. Shea Salinas ran down a long ball from Djalo along the left sideline, worked his way into the box and squeezed a shot between two defenders.

In the second half, Djalo chipped home a shot over goalkeeper Sean Johnson in the 79th minute, and his through ball to Chris Wondolowski started Cordell Cato's acrobatic finish in the 84th.

Atiba Harris and Wondolowski also scored for the Quakes.

Chicago's Grant Ward fired a shot off of Matt Watson's pass to make it 3-1 in the 75th minute.
