MOST COMMENTED

[USL-1] It was a very productive road trip for the Portland Timbers. They beat Montreal (1-0) and Rochester (4-1) to open up a four-point lead at the top of the USL First Division and extend their league record unbeaten streak to 22 games.

Midfielder Ryan Pore and forward Mandjou Keita each recorded a goal and an assist, forward Takayuki Suzuki scored the go-ahead goal and Keith Savage tacked on his third goal of the season to lead the Timbers (13-1-9) to their fourth straight victory.
