Timbers Vs. Rapids Final Score: Rapids Can't Find Offense, Fall 1-0

The Portland Timbers (7-13-6) used a goal late in the first half to beat the Colorado Rapids (8-17-2) 1-0, Friday night in Portland.

Most of the first half was rough and relatively slow before Timbers' Bright Dike scored on a cross from Sal Zizzo in the game's 45th minute. The Rapids failed to score in the second half, resulting in the eighth time they've been shut out this season. While Colorado managed 12 shots on goal, only 4 of those were on target.

The loss put Colorado one point behind Portland for last place in the Western Conference. The two teams play the second game of their home and home series Wednesday at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park.
