MLS Game Summary - Vancouver at Portland



(Saturday, May 26, 2012)

From The Sports Network

Final Score: Vancouver 1, Portland 1

Portland, OR (Sports Network) - Darren Mattocks scored his first Major League Soccer goal just after entering the match, and Vancouver Whitecaps FC tied the Portland Timbers, 1-1, on Saturday at Jeld-Wen Field.

Mattocks, who just replaced Camilo Sanvezzo, got a pass from fellow substitute Eric Hassli, settled the ball 12 yards from goal and fired a shot past Timbers goalie Troy Perkins in the 84th minute.

Kris Boyd scored earlier in the second half for Portland, but Vancouver earned a point on the road in its second Cascadia Cup match of the season. Vancouver, Portland and Seattle Sounders FC play for the Cascadia Cup.

Vancouver tied Seattle, 2-2, last week to draw its first Cascadia clash, and a scoreless opening half in Portland concluded with drenching rain and hail that forced a delay during halftime because the storm also included lightning.

Once the second half started, Portland (3-5-4) took the lead when Whitecaps FC goalie Joe Cannon could not corral a cross and just tipped it to the far post, where Boyd was waiting.

Boyd drove the ball into the goal from just a few yards out for his team-high fourth goal of the season, but Vancouver (5-3-4) denied Portland a second win during an unbeaten month.

Hassli sent a short pass from the edge of the area to Mattocks, who played the ball down off his chest, then turned and fired high to the left side to send a shot past Perkins and split the points.

Portland posted a win and three ties during May, but Vancouver will leave with the more important point, its eighth on the road this season.

Vancouver returns to MLS action over the two-week international break against the Houston Dynamo on June 10. Portland is off until June 17, when it visits the Los Angeles Galaxy.
