Timbers Tally Victory In Stoppage Time

Monday, July 06, 2015

 

Last night at Providence Park, the Portland Timbers and San Jose Earthquakes took the action until the final seconds of play.

The game carried on into stoppage time with the score knotted at 0-0. In the end it was the Timbers that came out with three points following the home victory. Four minutes of stoppage time were added on, and four minutes was more than enough time for the Timbers to deliver the deciding goal.

Captain Jack Jewsbury became the man of the hour when he put the game-winning goal in the back of the net just one minute into stoppage time. Portland was able to hold on for the remaining three minutes to walk away with the win.

The Timbers had two early chances to take the lead in regular time, but officials rebuked both initial strikes due to offside violations. Early in the first half Diego Valeri scored to give Portland the 1-0, but a late offsides call canceled the goal. In the second half, Gaston Fernandez supposedly scored the big deciding goal, but once again offisides was called, and the score was canceled.

Following the two regular time goals it seemed that the Timbers wouldn’t be able to catch a break. Redemption was imminent for Portland, and who better than Captain Jack to redeem the boys of Rose City.

Portland plays next in Philadelphia against the Union, Saturday, July 11.
