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.
