COMMERCE CITY, Colo. -- Gaston Fernandez scored in the 76th minute to lift the Portland Timbers to a 2-2 draw with the Colorado Rapids on Saturday night.
Maximiliano Urruti made a nice play to settle a bouncing ball and found Fernandez cutting in the right side of the box. Fernandez then muscled off a defender and finished the great feed past keeper John Berner.
Portland (8-8-12) scored first in the 43rd minute, as Diego Valeri's half-volley cleared Berner for his eighth goal of the season.
