The Timbers went an entire month without losing a match, winning five in a row before falling 2-1 to Real Salt Lake on Oct. 14th. Portland would take on LAFC on Sunday night with an opportunity to get back to their winning ways and continue their push to be the top club in the West. A win would put them on top of the West standing all alone with 33 points.

During the first 45+ minutes of play, Portland has a few great opportunities to break the scoreless match, but were unable to finish as the score remained 0-0 going into halftime.

The score was surprising to many, given the fact that these two clubs came in as the highest scoring clubs in all of MLS.

It didn’t take long for Portland to get on the board once the second half began. In the 47th minute, Jeremy Ebobisse shot a rocket from the right side of the box to give the Timbers a 1-0 lead.

There would be no more scoring until the 93rd minute when Christian Torres scored his first MLS goal to bring LAFC level with Portland.

The goal by the 16-year-old Torres would be the final goal of the night, as the Timbers had to settle for a 1-1 draw on the night.
