Portland Timbers 3-2 D.C. United: Timbers finally win
Yahoo! Sports 27+ SHARES
Nine games into the season, and Portland finally has a win.
Last year's Western Conference top seed began the year with five draws and three losses, but earned its first win of 2014 in dramatic fashion, defeating D.C. United 3-2 at home.
Portland scored almost immediately.
The Timbers caught United on the break and a Diego Valeri cross came into Gaston Fernandez, who touched the ball over Bill Hamid and acrobatically flicked it into the net, for the fastest-ever Timbers goal in the MLS era.
Valeri's corner passed through traffic until Futty Danso applied a sliding finish from the top of the box.
