MLS Game Summary - Portland at Los Angeles



(Friday, July 4, 2014)

From The Sports Network

Final Score: Portland 2, Los Angeles 2

Carson, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Rauwshan McKenzie's own goal four minutes from time helped the Los Angeles Galaxy claim a 2-2 draw with the Portland Timbers on Friday at the StubHub Center.

The result extends the Galaxy's unbeaten run to six games after the team fell behind 2-1 to second-half goals from Portland's Diego Valeri and Jorge Villafana, which came three minutes apart.

Marcelo Sarvas had the best chance to open the scoring in the first half for either team after 16 minutes when he curled a shot off the far post from inside the penalty area.

The pace picked up after the break and Robbie Keane ripped a half-volley over the net from the top of the box before Portland's Will Johnson sent a rocket of a free kick on goal that forced Galaxy goalkeeper Jaime Penedo to fumble the ball nervously before clearing it to safety.

Sarvas finally broke the deadlock in the 65th when Landon Donovan laid a pass off that allowed him to curl home a right-footed shot inside the far post.

However, the Timbers came back with two goals in quick succession, starting with a tally from Valeri after Fanendo Adi's header was blocked.

Valeri then saw his shot blocked a few minutes later, but Villafana was on hand to drive the ball into the bottom corner of the net to put his team in front with 20 minutes to play.

Portland goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts made a fine stop on Donovan's free kick in the 76th, but McKenzie redirected a cross into his own net four minutes from time to spoil a good second-half outing from the visitors.
