Whitecaps FC are coming off a 3-1 home win against LA Galaxy that snapped a seven-game winless run. The Timbers are still riding an MLS club-record undefeated streak, now at nine games following a dominant 3-0 home win against Chivas USA last weekend. REFEREE: Matthew Foerster.

Whitecaps FC sit in a tie for seventh place in the Western Conference with 12 points from 10 matches. LAST MATCH  Whitecaps FC opened the scoring on 63 minutes. After coming on as a substitute early in the contest, Russell Teibert opened the scoring, hitting a left-footed strike from outside the area past a fully outstretched Carlo Cudicini into the bottom left corner to finish off a long run out of midfield by Nigel Reo-Coker.  Teibert hit for his second and doubled Vancouver’s lead in the 76th minute, smashing home a ball teed up to him by Gershon Koffie in the box.  The Galaxy pulled a goal back in the 86th minute through Gyasi Zardes, who headed home a Jose Villarreal cross from the right flank for his first MLS goal.  But Whitecaps FC concluded the victory when Darren Mattocks pounced on a bouncing ball and prodded it home from close range in stoppage time.  Whitecaps FC head coach Martin Rennie made two changes to the team that dropped a 2-0 decision to Real Salt Lake at Rio Tinto Stadium. Jun Marques Davidson and Darren Mattocks came into the team, replacing Russell Teibert and Corey Hertzog.  VANCOUVER WHITECAPS FC (4-1-2-3): Joe Cannon - Lee Young-Pyo, Andy O'Brien, Johnny Leveron, Alain Rochat - Jun Marques Davidson - Nigel Reo-Coker (Brad Rusin 85), Gershon Koffie - Daigo Kobayashi (Russell Teibert 14), Darren Mattocks, Camilo Sanvezzo (Jordan Harvey 78). TEAM NEWS  Whitecaps FC won for the first time in league play since March 9 in defeating the Galaxy. The win put an end to their winless streak after seven games, matching the longest for the club in MLS play since a 14-game streak March 26-June 11, 2011 (they also went seven games without a win last Aug. 15-Sept. 29).

“It’s the first win for the club against the LA Galaxy, so I think that’s a very significant goal that we talked about with the players a few weeks ago as an opportunity that we would have coming up, and that day arrived today,” said Whitecaps FC head coach Martin Rennie. “We put together a decent performance in the second half, we took our chances when they came along and for the most part we defended quite well.” After coming on as an early substitute, Vancouver midfielder Russell Teibert scored his first two professional goals. Teibert came on for Daigo Kobayashi, who suffered an ankle injury after just 14 minutes. “It’s a blur. I don’t know what I was thinking. I was just overwhelmed,” said Teibert. “ … I always want to play in front of my family. So, I think it’s something special, for not only for them, but for myself, to be able to play in front of them tonight.” Said Rennie: “It was good having him play on the inside right channel. I thought that he showed a lot of energy there and did well there. He’s played well in central midfield as well – he’s versatile, but certainly today he showed what he can do [in an attacking role].” Darren Mattocks returned to the starting lineup and scored his second goal of the season, his first since March 23. Three of his last five appearances had been off the substitutes’ bench. “It was important for him,” Nigel Reo-Coker said. “It’s always important for strikers to score, especially after they go through a bit of a goal drought. ... I told Darren you’ve got to keep going, for 90 minutes you’ve got to keep going, your chance will come and you’ve got to take your chance. Said Mattocks: “Some of the best strikers in the world – we’ve seen [Robin] van Persie go 13 games…without scoring a goal. And he’s a world-class player, so anyone can go through droughts. But I’m not finding excuses. I just have to keep working on it – I’m very relieved that the goal has come. I just have to keep working hard and be focused.” Johnny Leveron made a second consecutive start in central defense, alongside Andy O’Brien. But there will be a forced change this weekend as the MLS Disciplinary Committee suspended Leveron for one game following a reckless challenge in the Galaxy match. “It’s interesting as the competition steps up, he seems to step up,” Rennie said. “ … (W)hen it came to the game against Salt Lake and also the games against Edmonton I thought he really defended well and showed why he’s got the caps he’s got for Honduras. He’s a really good addition for us and he’ll get better because he’s still learning the language, still continuing to get in better shape and getting used to his surroundings.” On Wednesday, Whitecaps FC and the Montréal Impact reached a scoreless draw in the first leg of their Canadian Championship final at BC Place. The return match will be played May 29 at Stade Saputo. Here’s the Whitecaps FC team: Brad Knighton; Nigel Reo-Coker, Johnny Leveron, Andy O'Brien, Jordan Harvey; Matt Watson, Brad Rusin; Alain Rochat (Erik Hurtado 79'); Darren Mattocks (Corey Hertzog 65'), Russell Teibert, Gershon Koffie

PORTLAND TIMBERS The Portland Timbers extended their MLS club-record undefeated streak to nine games, rolling to a 3-0 win against Chivas USA on Sunday evening at Jeld-Wen Field. The Timbers are in second place in the Western Conference with 18 points from 11 matches. LAST MATCH  The Timbers took the lead in the 34th minute. On a counter off a corner kick, Rodney Wallace broke free down the left wing on a perfectly-timed feed from Ryan Johnson, then beat his defender and finished inside the far post with a nifty left-footed lob.  The Timbers put the game away in the 70th minute when Wallace and Darlington Nagbe teamed up to unlock the Chivas defense with a series of passes at the top of the area. Wallace fed Diego Valeri on a perfectly timed through ball, and he easily beat Chivas goalkeeper Patrick McLain from the heart of the area.  Portland completed the rout in stoppage time, when Will Johnson latched onto a short corner and hit a beautifully struck, right-footed shot from the left corner of the area that curled inside the far post past the outstretched arms of McLain.  Timbers head coach Caleb Porter made two changes to the team that reached a 1-1 draw with FC Dallas in Frisco. Ryan Johnson and Rodney Wallace came back into the team in place of Frederic Piquionne and Kalif Alhassan.  PORTLAND TIMBERS (4-2-3-1): Donovan Ricketts - Jack Jewsbury (Ben Zemanski 74), Andrew Jean-Baptiste, Mamadou Danso, Michael Harrington (Frederic Piquionne 83) - Diego Chara, Will Johnson - Darlington Nagbe (Kalif Alhassan 71), Diego Valeri, Rodney Wallace - Ryan Johnson. TEAM NEWS  The Timbers stretched their MLS club-record undefeated streak to nine games in the win vs. Chivas USA, now 4-0-5 since a 2-1 home loss to the Montréal Impact on March 9.  “It’s been a good third of the season and we have made a lot of progress, and we’re in good position pointswise, but it’s a very tight race in this conference,” said Timbers head coach Caleb Porter. “For me it was a good performance. There is still a lot more left in the tank. To me we are just scratching the surface.”

Diego Valeri set up two of the Timbers goals vs. Chivas and scored one himself. He is now tied for the league lead in assists with four, along with Real Salt Lake’s Joao Plata and Sporting KC’s Graham Zusi. “A lot of our players right now, it’s real simple, they’re enjoying their football,” Porter said. “They’re enjoying it. The more you enjoy playing this game, the better you play. I tell them to go out and be free, just play.” Rodney Wallace also scored a goal and added an assist. Wallace now has three goals on the season, matching his career-high set in 2009 with D.C. United in his first year. He now has two goals and two assists over the last four matches, having started only three of those. “Rodney Wallace is having a breakout year,” Porter said. “I’m not sure why he hasn’t had a breakout year up to this point because I think clearly he is one of the better wingers in the league. He’s really flourishing.” Will Johnson also added his fourth goal of the season, the midfielder now level with striker Ryan Johnson for the Timbers team lead. “[Will Johnson and Diego Chara] are, for me, dominant box-to-box midfielders. They have been bringing it every single game. They are in a position where they don’t always show up on the score sheet, but they are the heart of our team, they are the engine room,” said Porter. “It was good for Will to get a goal today, but there were a lot of moments where Diego Chara slashed forward and could’ve had assists. Those two guys are putting work in and it’s really making us go.” The Timbers also kept a fourth clean sheet in the last seven matches, having allowed just four goals over that span. “Once the communication gets going, we keep covering up for each other and that helps the team. I think that’s why we are getting results this year,” said defender Futty Danso. “[Goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts] gives you a ton of confidence. You know there is less of chance that someone will score when you have someone like him behind you. Playing in front of Donovan is like having a fifth defender with you.”

ABOUT WHITECAPS FC In 1974, Vancouver Whitecaps FC played their inaugural season in the North American Soccer League, and in 1979, the club won the NASL Soccer Bowl championship. Following the demise of the NASL in 1984, Vancouver 86ers were founded in 1986, and from 1987 to 1992, the club won four Canadian Soccer League titles. In 1993, Vancouver joined the North American second division after the disbandment of the CSL. In 2001, the club reverted back to the Whitecaps and the following season added FC to their official name, while creating a full club model that encompasses professional teams for men and women, extensive youth development and grassroots participation programs, facility development, and the Whitecaps Foundation to support specific initiatives related to health and wellness through soccer. Since 2004, Whitecaps FC have won two United Soccer Leagues First Division championships and two USL WLeague championships. Whitecaps FC were the 17th club admitted to Major League Soccer on March 18, 2009, and on March 19, 2011, Vancouver kicked off their inaugural year in MLS at Empire Field before moving into the new BC Place Stadium in downtown Vancouver. Vancouver finished the 2011 season with a record of 6W-18L-10D and last season improved to 11-13-10, finished fifth in the Western Conference and made history by becoming the first Canada MLS club to qualify for the MLS Cup Playoffs. 2013 is Vancouverʼs 39th season of professional soccer, and 27th consecutive season. Whitecaps FC are the longest running professional soccer club in United States and Canadian history.

WHITECAPS FC VS.PORTLAND TIMBERS – MEDIA NOTES

MATCH NOTES This will be the sixth meeting between Whitecaps FC and Portland Timbers in MLS regular season competition. VWFC hold a 0W-4L-1D overall record and a 0W-2L-0D record at home against the Timbers. In their last meeting, the ʻCaps fell 1-0 to Portland at BC Place on October 10, 2012. Today will also be the 71st time these Pacific Northwest rivals have met in a competitive contest. Between 1975 and 2011, Whitecaps FC lead the Timbers with an all-time record of 33W-27L-10D – VWFC are 23-9-3 at home. This will be the first of three regular season matches for Whitecaps FC against the Timbers this season. The ʼCaps will travel to Portland on August 3, and will host the Timbers on October 6. CASCADIA CUP Founded in 2004, the competition was conceived amongst the supporters of all three clubs, who were then members of the United Soccer Leagues First Division (USL-1). The Cascadia Cup is awarded to the club that has the best head-to-head record in MLS regular season matches between their Pacific Northwest rivals. Seattle won the first all-MLS Cascadia Cup title in 2011 after registering a 2W-0L-2D record. Portland were second going 2-1-1, while Whitecaps FC finished third with a 0-3-1 record. Last year, Portland won the cup with a record of 3-1-2, Seattle finished second going 2-1-3, and Vancouver third with a record of 0-3-3. All three clubs have won the Cascadia Cup three times. Whitecaps FC won the trophy in 2004, 2005, and 2008, while Sounders FC won the title as a USL-1 club in 2006 and 2007, and as an MLS outfit in 2011. Portland won the Cascadia Cup in 2009 and 2010 (when the trophy was only contested between Whitecaps FC and the Timbers at the North American second division level) and 2012.

WESTERN OPPOSITION Whitecaps FCʼs record against opponents from the Western Conference in 2012 was 9W-8L-7D and is 12W17L-12D all-time. Last Saturdayʼs 3-1 win against LA Galaxy was the seventh match against Western Conference opponents in 2013. The ʼCaps now hold a 1W-3L-3D record against Western Conference clubs this season. UNDEFEATED RESERVES Whitecaps FC Reserves continued their MLS Reserve League season on Tuesday, May 7, with a 2-1 win against Colorado Rapids Reserves. This Sunday, VWFC will host the Timbers Reserves at UBC at 11am. The ʼCaps are undefeated in MLS Reserve League action with a record of 2W-0L-0D. NEXT UP Following this Saturdayʼs clash, VWFC have a bye week before returning to hosting duties on Wednesday, May 29 when they battle Montreal Impact in the second leg of the ACC finals. INJURY REPORT #6 JAY DEMERIT - OUT In Vancouverʼs season opener against Toronto FC on March 2, Whitecaps FC captain DeMerit tore his left Achilles tendon in the seventh minute of play. On March 4, DeMerit underwent successful surgery and is currently rehabbing with the training staff in Vancouver. #17 OMAR SALGADO - OUT During a USA U-20 camp at the start of May, Salgado refractured the fifth metatarsal in his right foot. On May 8, Salgado underwent successful surgery and is currently with his family in El Paso, Texas. #9 DAIGO KOBAYASHI - QUESTIONABLE In the 14th minute during last Saturdayʼs match against LA Galaxy, Kobayashi suffered a left ankle sprain. Kobayashi is currently rehabbing with the training staff in Vancouver. #9 KENNY MILLER - QUESTIONABLE Midway through the session on April 2nd, Miller withdrew from practice with some tightness in his right hamstring.

HEAD COACH CALEB PORTER One of the most successful coaches in NCAA history, Caleb Porter was named the Timbers head coach on Aug. 29, 2012, and joins the club following seven seasons as the head coach at the University of Akron from 2006-12. He finished his time at Akron with a career mark of 123-18-17 and owned the highest winning percentage (0.832) among all active Division I coaches. Porter has helped lead the Timbers to a positive result in 10 of the team’s first 11 matches of the 2013 MLS season, including a current club-record, nine-game unbeaten stretch. Porter has been named the MLSsoccer.com Coach of the Week twice this year (Week 6, Week 9). Porter built Akron men’s soccer into a perennial national championship contender, leading the Zips to five consecutive trips to the NCAA tournament’s Round of 16 (2008-12), back-to-back NCAA College Cup appearances in 2009 and 2010, and the school’s first national title in any sport in 2010. In all, he guided Akron to seven Mid-American Conference (MAC) regular-season championships and five MAC Tournament titles. Porter set multiple NCAA records at Akron, including a 48-match, home unbeaten streak (44-0-4) from 2008-11 and a 47-match unbeaten streak (44-0-3) in conference play from 2006-12. From Kalamazoo, Mich., Porter garnered numerous honors while at Akron, including NSCAA National Coach of the Year in 2009. He was a three-time NSCAA All-Ohio Coach of the Year (2008-09, 2011) and received MAC Coach of the Year honors six straight years from 2007-12. Porter became the fastest coach in program history to reach 100 career wins, accomplishing the feat in just 126 matches. He is also among the fastest all-time in NCAA history to the century mark, reaching the milestone in fewer games than collegiate Hall of Fame and current MLS coaches Bruce Arena (140; Virginia) and Sigi Schmid (136; UCLA). While at Akron, Porter recruited and developed more than a dozen Zips players who have gone on to professional careers, many plying their trade in Major League Soccer. He had an MLS-record five former players selected in the first round of the 2011 MLS SuperDraft and seven selected overall that year. Under Porter’s guidance, Portland’s Darlington Nagbe and former Akron standout Teal Bunbury were recipients of the MAC Hermann Trophy, awarded to the nation’s top collegiate player. Porter also served as the head coach of the U.S. U-23 Men’s National Team during 2012 CONCACAF Olympic qualifying and spent three years as an assistant coach on the U.S. U-18 National Team from 2009-11. Prior to joining Akron, Porter was an assistant coach for six years (2000-05) at Indiana University, helping the school make six NCAA tournament appearances, win back-to-back national championships in 2003 and 2004 and claim five Big Ten Conference titles. As a player, Porter was the 27th overall pick by the San Jose Clash in the 1998 MLS College Draft. He spent time with San Jose and the Tampa Bay Mutiny before a knee injury ended his playing career in 2000. Porter also played for the U.S. National B Team from 1996-97, winning a bronze medal at the 1997 World University Games. He had a successful collegiate playing career at Indiana, where he was a three-year captain, a threetime All-Big Ten honoree and a four-year letter winner. Porter led the Hoosiers to four conference titles, four NCAA tournament appearances – twice advancing to the College Cup. As a senior, Porter captained IU to 23 consecutive wins before losing to eventual national champion UCLA in the national semifinals and was the runner-up for the 1997 Hermann Trophy.

PORTLAND TIMBERS AT VANCOUVER WHITECAPS FC SATURDAY, MAY 18, 2013 ALL-TIME SERIES NOTES Dating back to the first matchup between the Timbers and Whitecaps in 1975 – a 2-0 win for Portland on May 16 in Vancouver – the Timbers are a combined 28-33-12 against their Canadian rivals. The Cascadia rivalry between Portland and Vancouver continues Saturday with the sixth MLS meeting between the sides. Portland leads the MLS series 4-0-1, including a 2-0-1 record during the 2012 MLS season and a 2-0-0 record at BC Place. Last year, the Timbers hoisted the Cascadia Cup following a 1-0 win against Whitecaps FC at BC Place in Vancouver. The win gave Portland a 3-1-2 overall record (11pts) against Vancouver and Seattle, awarding the Timbers their first Cascadia Cup as an MLS side. In the first MLS match between the sides on Aug. 20, 2011, midfielder Diego Chara netted the quickest goal in Timbers MLS history in front of a sold-out crowd at JELD-WEN Field. Chara’s goal in the second minute helped spark the Timbers to a 2-1 win with fellow Colombian Jorge Perlaza also scoring. The Timbers travel to Vancouver twice this year (May 18, Oct. 6), while Whitecaps FC visits the Rose City on Aug. 3.

LAST TIME VS. WHITECAPS FC The Timbers won the 2012 Cascadia Cup with a 1-0 win over Whitecaps FC in front of 21,000 fans at BC Place on Oct. 21, 2012. Midfielder Jack Jewsbury scored the decisive goal, lifting Portland to its first road victory of the season. The Timbers entered the match needing a win to the secure the cup, and they found the eventual game-winning goal in the 39th minute on Jewsbury’s 30yard strike into the top right corner of the goal. Portland’s defense played well throughout the match and held Vancouver without a shot on goal during the second half to preserve the lead and secure the club’s first Cascadia Cup as an MLS side.

PORTLAND TIMBERS AT VANCOUVER WHITECAPS FC SATURDAY, MAY 18, 2013 UNDEFEATED RUN, HOME AND AWAY A 3-0 win against Chivas USA on May 12 at JELD-WEN Field extended the Timbers current undefeated run to a club-record setting nine games. The streak is tied with FC Dallas for the longest active undefeated streak in MLS this season. The streak began on March 16 with a 1-1 draw at Seattle and featured a comefrom-behind 2-2 draw at Colorado (March 30), back-to-back wins against Houston (April 6) and San Jose (April 14) at JELD-WEN Field and a 1-1 draw April 21 against San Jose at Buck Shaw Stadium. A thrilling 3-2 win against Sporting Kansas City on April 27, a scoreless draw on May 2 against New England and a 1-1 draw at FC Dallas on May 8 kept the run alive. During the streak, Portland has earned a 4-0-5 record while scoring 14 goals and conceding seven.

UPCOMING MILESTONES Team captain Will Johnson’s next assist will be the 10th of his career. Johnson earned the second assist on midfielder Diego Valeri’s first career MLS goal in a 3-3 draw with New York on March 3. The seven-year MLS veteran has registered an assist in each of his last five seasons. Midfielder Jack Jewsbury’s next goal will be the 25th of his career. Jewsbury has started each of the last nine games for the Timbers. Defender Michael Harrington’s next assist will be his 15th career MLS assist. Harrington earned a career high four assists in 2007 and 2010 with Sporting Kansas City. The North Carolina native’s next point will be the 25th of his career.

SCOUTING WHITECAPS FC Head coach Martin Rennie guided his side to the league’s fifth and final playoff spot last year in the club’s second season in MLS. Whitecaps FC suffered a 2-1 knockout-round loss to the eventual champion LA Galaxy. This season, Vancouver kicked off with back-to-back wins, but faltered through a seven-game winless streak until May 11. Whitecaps FC went 0-4-3 during the slide, before halting the streak with a decisive 3-1 win against the LA Galaxy on May 11 at BC Place. Four players (Darren Mattocks, Camilo, Russell Teibert and Kenny Miller) have scored two goals this season, while Vancouver has received a total of 12 goals from eight players. Defender Lee Young-Pyo has played every minute of all 10 games for Whitecaps FC, along with goalkeeper Joe Cannon. Cannon, who has played 56 of the team’s 78 all-time MLS games, ranks second all-time in MLS in saves with 1,331 in 16 seasons.

LAST ONE STANDING Through 11 games, Portland holds the best winning percentage on the road (10-4, .600) and is the only remaining team yet to suffer a road loss while already equalling the team’s away points total from last year. The Timbers have earned at least a point in each of their first five road contests, including a 1-1 draw against FC Dallas on May 8. Portland erased two, one-goal deficits in a 3-2 win against Sporting Kansas City on April 27 and battled back for draws at Seattle (March 16) and Colorado (March 30). The Timbers also earned a 1-1 draw at San Jose on April 21. Portland’s eight goals on the road ranks tied for second in the league and first overall in the Western Conference.

AMONG LEAGUE LEADERS Several Timbers players rank among the league leaders in notable statistical categories. Midfielder Diego Valeri is tied for first in assists (4), fourth in shots (33) and second in corner kicks (48). Forward Ryan Johnson is tied for fourth in goals (4), midfielder Diego Chara is tied for second in game-winning assists (2). Goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts is tied for second in shutouts (4).

2013 CASCADIA CUP STANDINGS

TIMBERS BEAT CHIVAS USA 3-0 AT HOME Midfielder Diego Valeri recorded one goal and two assists and forward Rodney Wallace registered a goal and an assist to help guide the Timbers to a 3-0 win over Chivas USA before a sold-out JELD-WEN Field on May 12, extending Portland’s MLS-club record unbeaten streak to nine games. The Timbers claimed the lead just past the half-hour mark on Wallace’s third goal of the season. Valeri then doubled the lead, 2-0, in the 70th minute and midfielder Will Johnson provided Portland’s third goal in second-half stoppage time as the club matched its largest margin of victory as an MLS side in the 3-0 win. Goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts and the Timbers defense held Chivas USA to eight total shots, recording its fourth straight shutout at home and extending its home shutout streak to 390 consecutive minutes.

NEW CAREER HIGH Timbers midfielder Will Johnson set a new career high with his fourth goal of the season in a 3-0 win on May 12 against Chivas USA. Johnson equaled his career high in points (9) against Chivas USA. The midfielder is on the cusp of breaking his career highs in assists (3) and points (9) this season. In 990 minutes of action, Johnson has registered four goals, one assist and nine points for Portland. His next goal will be the 15th of his career.

A RESILIENT GROUP Through the first 11 games of the season, the Timbers are the only MLS club to earn a .500 or better record when conceding the first goal of a game. Portland has conceded the first goal in five of 11 matches, but the team has battled back to earn at least a point in four of those five games (1-1-3 record). The Timbers trailed twice against Sporting KC on April 27 before earning a 3-2 win on the road. Portland has surmounted a pair of two-goal deficits this season (3-1 on March 3 vs. New York; 2-0 on March 30 at Colorado) to earn draws. No other team in the league has accomplished that feat so far this season.

TIMBERS ACADEMY UPDATE TIMBERS U-18 ACADEMY The Timbers U-18s (10-11-6, 36pts) scored in second-half stoppage time to earn a 1-1 draw against the Earthquakes U-18s on Saturday, May 4. After going down a goal in the 80th minute, the Timbers U-18s earned a penalty kick in the final moments of the match, and midfielder James Nosack (Ridgefield, Wash.) converted from the spot – his 11th goal of the season – to help the home side earn a share of the points. On Sunday, the Timbers U-18s overcame an early goal to record a 4-2 victory over Cal Odyssey. Midfielder Foster Langsdorf (Vancouver, Wash.) recorded a brace, while Nosack scored his second goal of the weekend and forward Spencer Kleweno (Portland, Ore.) all scored for the U-18s, who sit in fifth place in the Northwest Division of the U.S. Soccer Development Academy. TIMBERS U-16 ACADEMY After seeing a 10-game unbeaten streak come to an end against Crossfire on April 27, the Timbers U-16s got back on track with a 3-0 win over the Earthquakes U-16s on Saturday. Forward Ben White (Tigard, Ore.) scored in the 32nd minute, while midfielders Reid Baez (Salem, Ore.) and Jacob Kempf (Camas, Wash.) each tallied in the second half. Goalkeeper Joe Wheelwright recorded the shutout. Against Cal Odyssey on Sunday, the Timbers U-16s (11-7-8, 41pts) received a two-goal performance by Niko De Vera (Washougal, Wash.) en route to a 4-1 win. Kempf tallied his second goal of the weekend and midfielder Jessie Garcia-Aguilar also (Hillsboro, Ore.) scored in the win.
