Deuce's Stoppage-Time Equalizer Gains Cascadia Cup Road Draw In Portland For Ten-Man Sounders

At Portland, Oregon:

In the lone Sunday Major League Soccer contest, Clint Dempsey's second-half stoppage time equalizer (90'+4) enabled the ten-man Seattle Sounders to gain a 2-2 Cascadia Cup road draw with the Portland Timbers.

Joevin Jones also scored for the Sounders in the 27th minute.

After Seattle's Brad Evans was ejected following his takedown on Darlington Nagbe, Fenando Adi scored his 50th career goal for the Timbers with his successfully-converted penalty kick in the 45th minute.

Then, Dairon Asprilla put Portland ahead in the fourth minute of first-half stoppage time.  The 2-1 Timbers lead lasted until Deuce's late equalizer which enabled the Sounders to snatch a point on the road.

Next up for the Timbers, a road encounter with Western Conference-leading Sporting Kansas City in a nationally-televised match at 4:00 PM Pacific Time, to be aired over ESPN.
