Match Moments

3' - GOAL (NYRB) - The Red Bulls scored first when an errant cross through the Timbers area found defender Kyle Duncan sprinting to the back post to slot home a goal and give New York a 1-0 lead.

6' - SAVE (POR) - After a wild scramble following a Steve Clark save that led to a rebound, a followup shot blocked by Jorge Villafaña and another rebound, New York hit a ball on frame only to have defender Bill Tuiloma block it off the line.

19' - CHANCE (POR) - Portland broke out on the counter with a ball upfield to Diego Valeri. Valeri stretched to cross a perfect ball to a speeding Diego Chara who chipped the keeper but his shot went off the crossbar.

21' - SAVE (POR) - Down the other way, a ball slipped through to NY's Josh Sims who quickly fired a shot but Clark pushed it up and over the goal.

31' - CHANCE (POR) - Following a Timbers free kick from the left side, the Red Bulls cleared the ball out but right back to Valeri. He sent a cross that found Tuiloma who hit a glancing header wide of the right post.

35' - CHANCE (POR) - Portland midfielder Tomás Conechny, with space outside the Red Bulls 18-yard box, curled a ball towards the upper 90 but the shot went just wide of the left post.

48' - CHANCE (POR) - Following a cleared Portland free kick, the ball was headed by Jorge Moreira to Valeri who flicked it on to Brian Fernandez on the left wing. His one-timed cross went to Tuiloma at the penalty spot who headed a shot but right at New York goalkeeper Luis Robles.

66' - CHANCE (POR) - On a Portland corner kick from Valeri, Jeremy Ebobisse snapped a strong header down but Robles was in position to make the save.

82' - CHANCE (POR) - Portland midfielder Sebastián Blanco, coming on as a second half substitute, lofted a perfect ball up and over the NY defense for a sprinting Ebobisse. Ebobisse went in on goal but pushed his shot just wide of the right post.
