Final Score: Chivas USA 1, Portland 1

Carson, CA (Sports Network) - Diego Valeri's second-half goal rescued a point for the Portland Timbers on Saturday as the club battled to a 1-1 draw with Chivas USA at the StubHub Center.

The hosts had the better of the play in the early stages and grabbed the lead in the 23rd minute when Bryan de la Fuente fired home a well-placed cross from Goats defender Carlos Borja.

But Portland got back on level terms five minutes after the break when the substitute Valeri collected a nice layoff pass in midfield from Jose Valencia and smashed it past Chivas goalkeeper Dan Kennedy.

Both teams pushed forward in search of a winner, but it never materialized as the clubs were forced to settle for a share of the spoils.
