Chivas USA beats Timbers 1-0
Wednesday, July 18, 2012
A 16th minute goal from Miller Bolaños lifted Chivas USA to a 1-0 win over the visiting Portland Timbers on Wednesday afternoon at the Home Depot Center.
It was the sixth consecutive scoreless road outing for the Timbers, who fell to 5 wins, 10 losses and four draws on the season, including 0-7-2.
The Timbers play another road game on Saturday, visiting an FC Dallas team that is at the bottom of the standings with Portland.
In a match that was even on the statistics sheet, the Timbers carried the play for much of the second half but did not create a clean scoring chance.
Chivas' goal came when Ryan Smith beat Portland defender Steven Smith and struck a ball that spun off the hands of Timbers goalkeeper Troy Perkins for Bolaños to finish.
