24' - SAVE(s) (POR) - Timbers goalkeeper Jeff Attinella made two quick saves to keep his team in it as he first came off his line to deny a close-range shot from Danny Hoesen and then leapt high on the ensuing corner kick to tip over the bar a header from Florian Jungwirth. Attinella set a career high with 10 saves in the match in total.
33' - GOAL (SJ) - San Jose doubled the lead after a scramble in the box. The loose ball came to Hoesen who then roofed it into the net for a 2-0 Earthquakes lead.
