Boli’s Goal Gives Portland Timbers a 1-0 win Over FC Dallas
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Franck Boli scored the game's only goal in the 35th minute, leading the Portland Timbers to a 1-0 victory over FC Dallas on Sunday night.
Boli's fourth goal of the season helped the Timbers (5-7-5) snap a four-game winless streak. David Bingham needed to make only two saves in the victory.
Martin Paes stopped seven shots, but FC Dallas (7-6-5) lost consecutive road games for the first time this season.
Portland scored when Evander took a pass at midfield and sent a crossing pass near the penalty spot to Boli, who put a header past Paes.
