Timbers Knock Off Struggling Galaxy At Home

At Portland, Oregon:

In a Sunday Major League Soccer match, Liam Ridgewell (5'), Diego Valeri (33'), and Alvas Powell (53') each scored a goal as the Portland Timbers defeated the visiting Los Angeles Galaxy 3-1.

Emmanuel Boateng scored for the Galaxy in the sixth minute and Gyasi Zardes appeared to have given the guests a 2-1 lead in the tenth minute, but, in the first video review to take place in a Timbers contest, ol' Gyasi get caught using his hand during the play and the goal was disallowed (he was even given a yellow card for that infraction).

The Timbers' next match will be a tall order as they travel to Toronto to take on the club with the best record in all of MLS, namely, Toronto FC, this coming Saturday at 3:00 PM Pacific Time (ROOT Sports).
