Timbers upset Earthquakes
The Western Conference-leading San Jose Earthquakes suffered their first Major League Soccer loss since May 27 on Tuesday night, going down 2-1 against the Portland Timbers at JELD-WEN Field.
Danny Mwanga and Jack Jewsbury each netted their first goals of the season to put Portland in the ascendancy, with Alan Gordon's 74th-minute consolation strike not enough to prevent the Earthquakes - who headed into the match on a three-game winning streak - from slipping to defeat.
Also on Tuesday, the Houston Dynamo and the Chicago Fire battled out a 0-0 draw at BBVA Compass Stadium in a match where clear-cut chances were at a premium. The teams managed only three shots on target between them and remained fifth and fourth, respectively, in the Eastern Conference standings.
