#StatMan Three | Armenteros continues hot run of form

The Portland Timbers extended their 13-match unbeaten streak in league play with a 2-2 draw against the Montreal Impact, Saturday, at Providence Park. Here are three key #StatMan takeaways from the match. 

65 With his goal in the 65th minute, Diego Valeri scored his 65th career MLS goal, becoming the 33rd player in MLS history to hit the 65-goal plateau. Valeri is the Timbers' all-time leading goalscorer with 12 more goals than any other Timbers player ever. 

7 Forward Samuel Armenteros scored his seventh goal of the season with all seven goals coming in the last nine matches for Portland. The Swedish forward is tied for the club lead in goals for 2018 with Valeri. 

3 Portland forced Montreal into multiple saves on set pieces, with defender Julio Cascante firing three shots on target, all from corner kicks. The three shots on target were a game-high for the Timbers and more than the Impact had for the entire match (two shots on goal).
