Timbers Tie Red Bulls in Season Openers

Added on by Thomas Boyd.

The Portland Timbers rallied from a 3-1 deficit and managed to scrape out a wild 3-3 draw against the New York Red Bulls in front of a sellout crowd of 20,674 at Jeld-Wen Field Sunday night.

The second half was brilliant. Ryan Johnson nearly made a bicycle kick in stoppage time and I'm pretty sure the photographers (namely me) were as disappointed as he was it didn't go in. It would have been epic and, more importantly, I had a good photo of it. It's insanely rare to see a goal on bicycle kick and even more so for it to be the game winning goal in stoppage. I'm pretty sure the Timbers Army would have stormed the field.
