From The Sports Network
Final Score: Colorado 1, Portland 0
Portland, OR (Sports Network) - For just about 90 minutes, it appeared as
though the Colorado Rapids were headed for their seventh successive draw.
Colorado (5-3-7) was locked in a 0-0 stalemate with the Portland Timbers at
Jeld-Wen Field, but Drew Moor popped up in the second minute of added time to
fire home the lone goal of the match, giving the Rapids a 1-0 win.
Portland goalkeeper Troy Perkins kept his team in the game with a pair of nice
saves on Colorado's Caleb Folan in the first half.
But Portland (5-6-2) generated the best chance of the match until stoppage
time in the 57th minute when Kenny Cooper found room near the edge of the area
for a shot that was kept out by a great diving save from Rapids goalkeeper
The game entered extra time with neither side really looking threatening, but
a wild scramble ensued after a ball was played into the Portland penalty area,
and it ended with Moor pouncing on a loose ball near the penalty spot to smash
the winner into an empty net.
The Timbers had won their first five games at home, but have now lost two
straight at the ground and three games in succession overall.
