GOALS: Timbers vs. Red Bulls

Timbers Army thunders with national anthem, goals from Valeri, Nagbe & own goal produces draw

The TImbers Army gets the evening started with a thundering rendition of the national anthem.

 

New York then pounces in the 9th minute after a defensive miscue. Fabian Espindola scores his first for his new team.

 

But in the 14th minute, Timbers' Diego Valeri opens his account with a beautiful juggle and goal to even it at 1-1.

 

New York's Espindola strikes again, however, in the 24th minute after speeding down the right flank.

 

Then in the 28th minute, New York's Jamison Olave makes it 3-1 via a Heath Pearce cross.

 

Timbers begin fightback with a 56th minute strike from Darlington Nagbe. Diego Valeri sets up goal with wicked shot that NY's Luis Robles parries but leaves a rebound for Nagbe to slot home.

 

Timbers draw even in the 83rd minute as Jose Valencia takes a sharp angle shot that caroms off of NY's Olave for an own goal.
