MLS roundup: Late own goal by Timbers allows Revolution to draw

Thursday April 28th, 2016

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Portland's own goal in the 89th minute gave the New England Revolution a 1–1 draw with the Timbers on Wednesday night.

Kelyn Rowe had a long volley to the far post that JeVaughn Watson tapped out front where it appeared Femi Hollinger-Janzen converted for his first MLS goal. However, it was ruled that the ball went off Portland defender Jermaine Taylor.

Jack Barmby's fortunate touch in the 64th minute put Portland (2-3-3) on top. Two minutes after entering the game, Barmby took a cross from Darlington Nagbe and mishit the ball, driving it into the ground before it bounced over keeper Bobby Shuttleworth and slipped inside the far post. It was Barmby's first goal.

New York City (1-3-4) took the lead in the 51st minute on a great buildup that led to RJ Allen's first goal. Allen, a New Jersey native, carried the ball inside midfield and sent it wide right to Khiry Shelton. Shelton one-touched it into the box and Thomas McNamara touched it back to the charging Allen for a shot inside the far post.

Montreal's late goal ran NYC's winless streak to seven games.

SPORTING KANSAS CITY 1, WHITECAPS 1, TIE

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Vancouver's Christian Bolanos and Sporting Kansas City's Diego Rubio scored in the first half and the Whitecaps held on with only 10 men for the 1–1 tie.

Bolanos scored his first Major League Soccer goal, connecting off Cristian Techera's corner kick in the 14th minute. Belanos deftly slotted into the top corner with a left-footed volley past goalkeeper Alec Kann.

Sporting tied it 13 minutes later on Rubio's first MLS goal. He scored off a scuffed shot from Kansas City's Lawrence Olum.

Vancouver went down to 10 men in the 51st minute when a poor back pass from Tim Parker to goalkeeper David Ousted forced fellow defender Kendall Waston to take down Rubio for his second yellow card.

Kansas City is 4-4-1, and Vancouver 3-4-2.
