The USL-1 league-leading Portland Timbers defeated England's Preston North End 2-1 in an exhibition match in front of 8,238 at PGE Park on Saturday night.

New signing Matt Taylor scored two second-half goals for the Portland Timbers. Preston North End suffered its third loss on its trip to the West Coast.

It also lost to the USL-1's  Seattle Sounders on Monday and Mexico's Monterrey on Thursday in Sacramento, Calif.

Portland holds a five-point lead over the Sounders at the top of the USL-1 standings.

The USL-2 playoff field is all set. Wins by Cleveland and Harrisburg put them in the playoffs; leader Richmond and Charlotte, which holds the tiebreaker over Crystal Palace Baltimore, complete the playoff field.
