Nat Borchers delivered a stunning winner against his former club to give the visiting Portland Timbers all three points Saturday night at Real Salt Lake in a 1-0 victory. Here are three #Statman takeaways from the match.
11With the shutout, Portland goalkeeper Adam Kwarasey has 11 clean sheets in 2015--good for tops in Major League Soccer. Kwarasey has been in goal for all 11 of the club's shutouts this season which is two more than any other team in MLS.
6 For the sixth time in the club's MLS history, a Timbers player scored against a former club. Borchers also joins Rodney Wallace and Eric Brunner as players to score a game-winning goal against an ex-club.
273 With a third consecutive shutout, the Timbers have not allowed a goal in its last 273 minutes of MLS play. For the first time in the MLS era, Portland now has back-to-back clean sheets in road matches.
