MATCH RECAP | New England Revolution 1, Portland Timbers 1

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.

Match Moments

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.
