SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Yannick Djalo scored from the edge of the box on a crisp pass from Chris Wondolowski in the 42nd minute, and the San Jose Earthquakes held off the Seattle Sounders 1-0 on Saturday night in the first sporting event at Levi’s Stadium.

The red jersey-wearing Quakes christened the new $1.2 billion high-tech home of the San Francisco 49ers with a quick-strike goal before withstanding a flurry of shots from the Western Conference-leading Sounders in the closing moments.

Wondolowski floated a pass from midfield over a defender and right onto Djalo’s feet. Djalo controlled the ball and flicked it past a charging Stefan Frei for his third goal this season, sending most of the announced crowd of 48,765 roaring out of their seats.

Djalo left with an apparent right leg injury in the second half.
