Jonathan Ferrey

The Timbers took a 2-1 win over Cascadia rival Vancouver on Saturday night.

Goals from Darlington Nagbe and Franck Songo'o earned Portland Timbers' interim head coach Gavin Wilkinson his first win and earned the club a 2-1 Cascadia rivalry victory over Vancouver on Saturday night.

Nagbe opened the scoring in the 41st after Jewsbury’s through ball put him in a great position to put his shot home.

Kenny Miller pulled the game level in the 46th after being picked out by Jay DeMerit.

It didn't take long for Portland to go back in front. Songo'o put home a free kick in the 55th to give his side a win and three points to pull the team out of the Western Conference basement.
