September 14

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Bradley Wright-Phillips had a goal and an assist to lead Los Angeles FC to a 4-2 victory over the Portland Timbers on Sunday night.

LAFC (4-4-3) rebounded from consecutive 3-0 losses. Portland (4-4-2) had its three-match road winning streak snapped.

Portland's Eryk Williamson opened the scoring in the 25th minute before LAFC scored three goals in a 10-minute stretch.

Mark-Anthony Kaye scored in the 37th minute with an assist from Wright-Phillips, and Diego Rossi scored in the 41st. Francisco Ginella crossed a deflected free kick to Wright-Phillips, who tapped the ball into the net for his fifth goal of the season in the first minute of first-half stoppage time.

Portland ended the first half a minute later when Jeremy Ebobisse floated a header over goalkeeper Pablo Sisniega.

LAFC's Danny Musovski scored the only goal in the second half, in the fifth minute of stoppage time.
