Timbers Blow Early Lead, Lose To St. Louis City FC

The Timbers were back home after an exciting loss to LAFC last week, and the Timbers wasted no time by scoring a goal in the third minute of the game when Zach McGraw headed a ball in off of a corner kick to give the Timbers an early lead.  But St. Louis scored a goal in stoppage time right before the half when Jared Stroud got one to the back of the net.  In the second half it was Kyle Hiebert of St Louis to score in the 75th minute.  The Timbers had their chances but couldn’t get the equalizer and with the loss fall to 1-2 on the season.
