Mora hit the game-winner at the death in the 93rd minute to give Portland the victory over LAFC on Wednesday. It is the second time that Mora has scored in the waning minutes of a match this season to give Portland a win. Chara, meanwhile, was flying all over the field on Wednesday, once again being a strong presence on both offense and defense.
