              === Late show sees Galaxy, Timbers finish level ===
 
 Portland,  OR (SportsNetwork.com)  - Diego  Valeri scored  deep into  stoppage
 time on  Sunday to rescue  a point for the Portland Timbers in a thrilling 1-1
 draw with the Los Angeles Galaxy at Providence Park.
 
 It  was a  wide-open game from the  opening kick as both sides created several
 opportunities  over  the course  of 90 minutes,  but the breakthrough wouldn't
 come until the clock showed 90 minutes.
 
 With five minutes added on for stoppage time, the Galaxy broke the deadlock on
 a long throw-in from Dan Gargan into the penalty area. The ball bounced in the
 box and Robbie Keane got around his mark and nodded it past Timbers goalkeeper
 Donovan Ricketts.
 
 The Galaxy thought they had wrapped up all three points, but there was a twist
 in  the tale in the fifth minute of injury time when Will Johnson found Valeri
 with  space on  the right  side of  the box.  Valeri fired  a low  strike that
 slipped  under the hands of Galaxy goalkeeper Jaime Penedo and into the bottom
 left corner for a thrilling equalizer.
 
 The  result sees  Los Angeles improve to nine points from seven matches, while
 Portland  improves to nine points, but has just one victory from 10 games this
 season.
