Quick Recap: Portland Draw Vancouver 1-1

Jaime Valdez-USA TODAY Sports

The Portland Timbers and Vancouver Whitecaps play to a 1-1 draw in Portland.

The first half of the game was a physical affair with 17 fouls being called combined on the Portland Timbers and the Vancouver Whitecaps. Along with the fouls 4 yellow cards were issued and two players had to be subbed off due to injury. The physicality made the first half very choppy and lead to very few goal scoring chances for either team.

The second half started out with a lot more possession for the Timbers and lead to a much more technical half. With a more open of a game the Timbers took advantage in the 49' with a great passing sequence that lead to a Diego Valeri cross that was headed in to the side netting by Ryan Johnson. The goal turned out to be an energizer for both teams as the play continued to be end to end.

Portland's defense looked shaky at times but kept Vancouver shooting from outside the box. On a Vancouver corner in the 69th minute Jordan Harvey headed the ball into the back of the net right past the head of Donovan Ricketts. Portland had their chances but none of them challenged David Ousted, the Vancouver Goalie.

The game ended 1-1 and Portland once again failed to gain more ground in the standings.
