Timbers end scoring drought by beating Fire 2-1

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Associated Press) -

Eric Brunner's goal in the 19th minute broke a three-match scoring drought and the Portland Timbers went on to defeat the Chicago Fire 2-1 on Sunday.

An own-goal in the 52nd minute proved to be the winner for the Timbers (3-5-3), who had played to scoreless draws in their last two matches.

Jalil Anibaba scored the lone goal for the Fire (4-3-3), stopping a 3-game unbeaten streak. The loss also snapped a 2-game winning streak on the road for Chicago.

The Timbers were coming off a 0-0 draw at Houston on Tuesday. That followed a scoreless result at home against the Columbus Crew on May 5 and a 2-0 shutout by Montreal the week before.
