Fire snap 4-game skid with 2-2 draw against Timbers
Vincent headed down Bastian Schweinsteiger’s deep diagonal cross to cap the scoring in the 84th minute for the Fire (0-2-1). The result snapped Chicago’s four-game losing streak stretching back to last season.
Schweinsteiger set up Vincent’s wide cross in the 50th minute and Nemanja Nikolic tapped in his third goal of the season to make it 1-all.
Blanco’s takeaway near midfield led to Diego Valeri’s early goal for Portland in the sixth minute. It was the reigning MVP’s first goal of the 2018 campaign.
