Portland Timbers 1-0 Los Angeles Galaxy: Urruti nets first MLS goal for win

.

The Timbers jumped to second place in the Western Conference with a win over the Galaxy.

Maximiliano Urruti's first goal for the Portland Timbers was enough to hand the club a 1-0 win over the LA Galaxy on Sunday afternoon.

Urruti, who was traded to the Timbers from Toronto earlier this month, got on the end of a corner in the 52nd and put a clever flick past Jaime Penedo to put his team in front.

In a game largely lacking for real chances on goal, the Galaxy looked to have tied it up in stoppage time only to have Robbie Keane called offside and his headed effort waved off.

The win leaves Portland in third place in the Western Conference and sets the club up in great position to make its first playoff appearance.
