Valencia gives Timbers 2-2 draw with Whitecaps
VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) Second-half substitute Jose Valencia scored in the 83rd minute to give the Portland Timbers a 2-2 draw against the Vancouver Whitecaps on Saturday night.
Will Johnson also scored for Portland and assisted on the equalizer to help the Timbers (4-1-7) extend their unbeaten strike to 10 games. The tying goal came while Portland was playing with 10 men due to Mamadou Danso's ejection 2 minutes earlier.
Camilo had a goal and an assist, and Gershon Koffie also scored for the Whitecaps (3-4-4), who are 3-0-3 at home.
Valencia scored after receiving a long, high lob from Johnson. Valencia and Vancouver defender Brad Rusin went up for the ball in the Whitecaps' box, and it appeared to touch the Portland player's arm. But play was allowed to continue, and Valencia tucked a short shot inside the near post.
