Portland Timbers Draw on the Road Against San Jose

Tuesday, August 04, 2015

 

In the Timbers first-ever trip to Avaya Stadium, Portland recorded their ninth shutout of the season, tying for the most in MLS.

The Timbers finished the match 0-0 in San Jose, California to earn a single point for the team. 

Following the draw, the Timbers sit in the fifth seed spot in the Western Conference. This puts them one point behind the fourth-place Sporting Kansas City, and four points behind the LA Galaxy in third place.

Timbers almost converted early in the second half when Fanendo Adi released a powerful strike from close distance less than two minutes into the half.

Adi put up another shot in the 66th minute that flew by just past the top right post of the goal. 

Mid-way through the second half Diego Valeri was fouled in the box, and sent to the line for a penalty kick. His attempt was fired hard and high only to deflect off the crossbar and back into the field.

Goalkeeper Adam Kwarasey tallied his MLS-leading ninth shutout of the season. Kwarasey finished the match with three saves, including a critical kick save in the seventh minute from midfielder Chris Wondolowski.

The Timbers come back to Portland for a home game against the Chicago Fire on Friday, August 7 at Providence Park.
