FOXBOROUGH, Mass – Lawrence Olum scored a clutch, second half goal and the Portland Timbers fought back to earn a 1-1 draw with the New England Revolution at Gillette Stadium Saturday evening.
1' - SAVE (POR) - Timbers goalkeeper Jeff Attinella was called into action early when NE's Teal Bunbury slipped through the Portland backline dangerously. Attinella came off his line though to make a key opening stop.
30' - CHANCE (POR) - Portland's David Guzmán lined up a 30-yard free kick that blazed past the Revolution wall but just wide of the left post.
58' - GOAL (NE) - New England's Scott Caldwell made it 1-0 for when he hit home a rebound in front of Portland goalkeeper Steve Clark. Clark had subbed on for an injured Attinella moments before.
70' - GOAL (POR) - The Timbers tied it at 1-1 as Lawrence Olum scored his first goal of the 2018 season. On a Portland corner, Guzmán served the ball into the mixer that a leaping Julio Cascante deflected down. Olum, lurking on the right side, flicked the ball inside the near post for the goal.
The Portland Timbers return to Providence Park on Saturday, Sept. 8 to host the Colorado Rapids. Kickoff is 7:30pm PT on FOX 12 PLUs (KPDX).
