Portland Timbers 2 Seattle Sounders 2: Dempsey scores stoppage-time equaliser to deny hosts

SoccerNews in MLS 26 Jun 2017

Clint Dempsey equalised with virtually the last kick of the match as defending MLS Cup champions and 10-man Seattle Sounders thwarted Portland Timbers in a dramatic 2-2 draw.

With 94 minutes played and time running out at Providence Park on Sunday, United States international and substitute Dempsey popped up to steal a point for the visiting Sounders.

The Timbers, on a three-match losing streak, were on track after Fanendo Adi and Dairon Asprilla struck in first-half stoppage time.

Joevin Jones followed up his own rebound to give the Sounders a 27th-minute lead away from home.

Adi restored parity from the penalty spot for his 50th MLS goal after Darlington Nagbe was fouled inside the area, with Brad Evans shown a red card.

It got worse for the Sounders just moments later when Asprilla rose highest to head home David Guzman’s corner on the stroke of half-time.

But as the Sounders neared victory, Dempsey came off the bench and guided a header into the bottom corner of the net.

The slumping Timbers are third in the Western Conference, four points ahead of eighth-placed Seattle.
