A Tale Of Two Halves, Timbers Get A Draw 3-3 In Kansas City


Soccer is 90 minute game, but the Portland Timbers only showed up for 45 of them. It was good enough for a 3-3 draw for the Timbers.

The first half was all Sporting Kansas City. The scoring began early and often. Three first half goals including one right before the half gave Sporting Kansas City a 3-0 lead heading into the half.

But whatever Phil Neville said to the Timbers changed the entire game. It was almost a 4-0 lead, but Sporting Kansas City’s Willy Agata, who had two goals already, missed a PK wide. That was all the momentum the Timbers needed. Soon after it was a PK by the Timbers to get their first goal with Evander scoring on the PK.

Only three minutes later it was a goal by Felipe Mora scoring a goal to cut the lead to 3-2 Sporting KC.

With all of the momentum the Timbers kept the pressure on. It was a beautiful follow by Eric Miller to tie the match at 3. It is Miller’s first MLS goal through 10 years and 185 games!

The Timbers showed a lot of fight and end up with a point in Kansas City as the match ended in a 3-3 draw.

Up next for the Timbers is a home match against LAFC. Pregame coverage starts at 12:30 p.m. with kickoff at 1:30 p.m. All the coverage will be on 750 The Game
