Timbers Edge Crew 2-1 in Season Opener

Monday, March 07, 2016

 

The Portland Timbers (1-0-0) defeated the (0-1-0) Columbus Crew 2-1 on Sunday afternoon at Providence Park in front of a sold crowd in a rematch of last season's MLS Cup game.  The Timbers are now unbeaten in their last 10 games. 

After the Crew tied the score at 1 on a goal by Federico Higuain in the 68th minute, Portland's Fanendo Adi got the game winner in the 79th minute of action. The goal was Adi's 26th since joining the Timbers in 2014. 

Portland got on the board first when Diego Valeri found the back of the net in the 26th minutes of action off of a free kick to give the Timbers a 1-0 lead. The Timbers got the free kick after Dairon Asprilla was taken down just outside the box by defender Harrison Afful. 

The Timbers held the halftime advantage and led for most of the second half before Higuain tied the game at 1 goal apiece. 

Next up 

The Timbers will take on the San Jose Earthquakes on Sunday, March 13 in San Jose at 4 p.m. 

The game can be seen on Fox Sports 1.
