Portland Timbers Triumph 2-nil Over D.C. United

The Portland Timbers earned 3 well deserved points on the road over a clearly struggling DC United squad.

I'm still not sure what to make of the game as a whole, but the Portland Timbers, for their part, were able to earn three needed points on the road. Really, though, that should be too surprising given just how awful this D.C. United team is. I don't know what happened between last year's playoffs and this season, but clearly something is amiss for them.

Rodney Wallace opened up the scoring sheet in the first half off a great cross by Frederic Piquionne. Wallace is certainly having his best season of his career so far and could well be in the running for Comeback Player of the Year if he keeps it up throughout the remainder of the season.

For the second goal, Darlington Nagbe managed to fight his way through three DCU defenders to drive it low and to the left of Bill Hamid. Nagbe's goal should come as no surprise to those watching the game as h was hammering shots throughout.

Tonight's result brings the Timbers to 22 points.

What did you think of the Timbers' performance?
