Rodney Wallace wins it for Timbers
KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- Rodney Wallace scored in the 58th minute, lifting the Portland Timbers to a 3-2 victory over Sporting Kansas City on Saturday night.
Chance Myers scored the first two goals of his career for Sporting (4-3-2), including the third-fastest score in club history, but it wasn't enough to keep Kansas City from taking back-to-back losses for the first time this season.
Myers' first goal, off Matt Besler's long throw-in, came 40 seconds into the match. It was the earliest score ever at Sporting Park, which opened in 2011.
Johnson equalized with a header in the 24th minute, but Myers made it 2-1 in the 29th with a tap-in off assists from Aurelien Collin and Benny Feilhaber. Four minutes later, Johnson drew out keeper Jimmy Nielsen with a run into the box and crossed to Darlington Nagbe for an easy finish that made it 2-2.
