The game in 100 words (or less): Back-to-back victories have the Portland Timbers up to second in the Western Conference, and Caleb Porter’s side has Fanendo Adi to thank for Saturday’s latest win. The Timbers striker recorded his seventh and eighth goals of the season to help his club rise above FC Dallas in the West table, while Oscar Pareja’s group falls to fourth with the defeat. Dallas had trouble finding consistency with its attack on Saturday as the reigning Supporters’ Shield champions posted just two shots on target.
Three moments that mattered
22′ — Valentin earning his paycheck with the goal-line clearance — Dallas had a hard time finding chances on Saturday but if this one had gone in it could’ve been a very different game.
32′ — Timbers capitalize off Adi’s seventh of the year — Give Fanendo Adi the ball around the box and he’ll make things happen…
72′ — Adi makes it two, seals the points — Now that’s how you execute an attack!
Man of the match: Fanendo Adi
