MLS: Portland Timbers 2 Chicago Fire 1

21 May 2012 05:33

The Portland Timbers scored their first goal in more than a month to snap a three-game losing streak with a 2-1 win over the Chicago Fire.

Eric Brunner gave the Oregon side the lead after 20 minutes to end his side's 448-minute goalless drought in the MLS.

Defender Hanyer Mosquera headed a Franck Songo'o corner towards Kris Boyd whose bicycle kick was slotted in by Brunner.

But Chicago's Jalil Anibaba equalised late in the first half to give his side the chance to take something of the Timbers for the first time. They have failed to take a point from Portland in three matches.

Seven minutes into the second half, Portland substitute Sal Zizzo found Boyd at the near post and the ball went into the net off Fire midfielder Logan Pause.

The win lifts Portland ahead of defending champions LA Galaxy, who slump to the bottom of the Western Conference.

Portland play a friendly against La Liga's Valencia on Wednesday before hosting Vancouver on Saturday.

Chicago entertain Dallas on Wednesday.
