Match Report presented by ECHO Outdoor Power: LA Galaxy lose track-meet to Portland Timbers

Portland Timbers put half a dozen past the LA Galaxy on Wednesday night at Dignity Health Sports Park, winning a wild match by a 6-3 margin.

The Timbers jumped out to a 2-0 lead within the first 23 minutes of the match. The opening goal started with a throw-in; Yimmi Chara did work to penetrate into the Galaxy box, sending a perfect pass that Felipe Mora was able to fire in. Then, on a free kick that looked to be a Diego Valeri special, Jeremy Ebibosse stepped up and surprised, bending his shot around the wall and past Galaxy 'keeper David Bingham.

But Julian Araujo would bring the Galaxy back to 2-1 by pouncing on a poorly-cleared corner kick attempt, sailing in the ball from beyond the 18.

Valeri would get his goal less than two minutes after play resumed, chipping a shot in to give the Timbers a two-goal lead. A lovely Cristian Pavon to Ethan Zubak combo in the 55th minute brought the Galaxy back to within a goal. The Timbers then took charge with Mora's second goal and Larrys Mabiala within the space of three minutes. Pavon, did, however, get on the scoresheet in the 71st minute with a definitive strike. But then Ebibosse would add his second in the 80th minute.
