RATING DETAILS AND OBJECTIVE HIGHLIGHTS
69th minute: Pleasant. After a questionable foul in the box, the Timbers take advantage of the whistle here and look set to pull the 10-man Galaxy away after Diego Valeri takes over and nails the penalty for a goal. Timbers up 3-0 now over the galaxy with some time left. LOOK:
60th minute: One is good, but two is sublime. Felipe Mora scores another giving him a brace and puts the Timbers 2-0 after a shot is blocked and he’s there to clean up the mess with a soft header for the score. LOOK:
47th minute: Right after the start of the second half, Felipe Mora gets on the end of a perfect cross and directs him into the goal to put the Timbers 1-0 on the Galaxy. LOOK:
44th minute: LA Galaxy’s Derrick Williams issues a terribly reckless challenge to Andy Polo in midfield, prying the Peruvian’s legs out and sending him collapsing onto the pitch. The tackle results in a straight red card for Williams and he’s gone. LA up to 10 men and Felipe Mora has to replace Polo who is helped off the field by coaches. Polo was later taken to the locker room in a wheelchair.
Both teams are hot enough to start the season so far, and while the Timbers are seen as a slight favorite, the Galaxy are seen as a pretty heavy underdog heading into this game due to being on the road.
