MLS Game Summary - Dallas at Portland



(Sunday, Aug. 5, 2012)

From The Sports Network

Final Score: Dallas 1, Portland 1

Portland, OR (Sports Network) - The Portland Timbers scored for the first time in three weeks Sunday, but they wasted an opportunity for three points against FC Dallas in MLS.

Jack Jewsbury scored off a full volley from the top of the box with 11 minutes remaining as Portland escaped with a 1-1 draw at Jeld-Wen Field against 10-man Dallas to end a five-game losing streak.

Scott Sealy scored five minutes after halftime for Dallas, which had Zach Loyd sent off just over a minute after it scored.

Dallas (5-11-8) held on for a point - just its third result away from home all year. Portland (5-12-5) has dropped points at home in seven of 12 matches this season.

With just one win in its last 11 road matches, Dallas presented an opportunity for Portland pick up three huge points at home. But after a scoreless half, FC Dallas started the scoring when Brek Shea, back from a two-game hiatus, slid a perfect pass in from the left for Sealy to tuck inside the right post.

Loyd earned his marching orders soon after for a second yellow card and Dallas eventually surrendered its surprise lead. Dallas goalkeeper Kevin Hartman, who made a strong save on Danny Mwanga minutes earlier, cleared a ball to the edge of the area that found Jewsbury.

The Portland captain lined up a shot and drove a volley right back at Hartman, who could not recover in time to make the save, as Jewsbury notched his second goal this season.

FC Dallas maintained its three-point edge on Portland for eighth place in the nine-team Western Conference.

Portland will try to take some momentum from the draw, and earn its first win away from home, Aug. 15 at Toronto FC in its next league match. Dallas is back in action Saturday, when it hosts the Colorado Rapids.
