Ryan Johnson scored twice to lead Portland to an impressive victory over the Houston Dynamo.
Johnson opened the scoring in the 55th minute when he connected with a lovely cross from Diego Chara to give the home side a 1-0 lead.
The big forward then rounded out his night with a second goal in the 73rd minute. After being played in by Darlington Nagbe, Johnson raced a full 40 yards and placed his shot into the upper corner to seal all three points for the home side.
The win is Portland's first of the season.
