Portland Timbers snap five-game winning streak in loss to Real Salt Lake


Then they fell back to Earth hard, failing to overcome an early two-goal deficit to lose to Real Salt Lake (4-7-6), 2-1 at Rio Tinto Stadium.


Portland technically remains in a tie for first with Seattle but with one more game played than the Sounders.


Also, since Sporting KC lost Wednesday evening they will remain in third, one point behind Portland.


The Timbers got off to a disastrous start conceding goals in the 11th and 26th minutes, but it nearly began perfectly for the boys in green.


In the fourth minute, Jeremy Ebobissee appeared to be fouled inside the box when RSL goalkeeper Andrew Putna tripped the Timebrs striker.


Portland finally broke through in the 77th minute when Bill Tuiloma headed in a Diego Valeri set piece.
