Timbers Hold Off Galaxy For Road Win (First Since Winning MLS Cup In Columbus In 2005); Open Season With Two Wins For First Time In MLS History

At Carson, California:

Diego Chara scored the only goal of the match in the eighth minute on Sunday as the Portland Timbers picked up a road victory---something that eluded them in Major League Soccer play all last season---1-0 over the ten-man Los Angeles Galaxy.

The Timbers open a season with two wins for the first time in seven MLS campaigns.

Portland's next match is this coming Saturday at home against the Houston Dynamo (another club that has won their first league contests of this season) at 7:30 PM Pacific Time (ROOT Sports Northwest).
