MLS: Nagbe's late goal lifts Portland to draw with Toronto FC
TORONTO (AP) -- Darlington Nagbe scored in the 82nd minute to give the Portland Timbers a 2-2 tie with Toronto FC on Wednesday night.
Nagbe headed home a cross from Steven Smith past Milos Kocic to cancel out second-half goals from Toronto strikers Luis Silva and Eric Hassli.
Silva gave Toronto FC the lead in the 63rd minute after some great work down the left side from Astone Morgan. The defender sent a cross in that was flicked on by Hassli and buried by Silva from in tight past goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts, making his Portland debut following a trade from Montreal.
Portland's Sal Zizzo put the Timbers up 1-0 in the 21st minute. After David Horst's header following a corner was cleared off the line by a TFC defender, Zizzo pounced on the loose ball from a yard out for his first goal of the season.
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Robbie Keane scored in the 64th minute for Los Angeles in Columbus' first match since the death of rookie midfielder Kirk Urso on Aug. 5.
The Crew (8-8-5) controlled the first half but couldn't score until Jairo Arrieta's skimming 22-yarder eluded goalkeeper Josh Saunders in the 47th minute.
Keane tied it for LA (11-11-4) with a tap-in off a goalmouth pass from the right side by Sean Franklin.
Urso died at age 22 and the team honored him in several ways with a video tribute and a moment of silence as well as armbands and patches on their jersey with Urso's No. 15 before a crowd of 17,019 at Crew Stadium.
VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) -- Fabian Castillo and second-half substitute Jonathan Top scored five minutes apart.
Dallas, who entered the game as the obvious underdog, improved to 7-11-8 while winning for the fourth time in the past seven games. The Whitecaps (10-8-7) suffered only their second loss at home.
Both Dallas goals came in the second half of a game which generated more yellow cards - nine - than scoring chances. Vancouver received six while Dallas got three.
The Whitecaps clearly missed attackers Darren Mattocks and Dane Richards, who were away on international duty with Jamaica. Meanwhile, captain Jay DeMerit sat out with a concussion and midfielder Gershon Koffie served a one-game suspension for taking his fifth yellow card of the season Saturday against Real Salt Lake.
