Camilo equalized for Vancouver from a set piece that took a deflection off of Rodney Wallace on its way past Donovan Ricketts.

The Timbers responded immediately as Nagbe laid the ball off for Johnson to slam home a one-time effort from the top of the box.

But the 'Caps responded with haste as Young-Pyo Lee's quick cross was fired home by Camilo's sensational side-volley in the 78th minute.
