Jack Jewsbury scored on a volley in the 71st minute Sunday night to lift the Timbers into a 1-1 draw with FC Dallas that snapped Portland's five-game losing streak.
Scott Sealy scored for Dallas (5-11-8) off a cross from Brek Shea in the 51st minute of the matchup between the bottom two teams in the Western Conference.
Jewsbury's volley was a left-footed blast from the top of the penalty box after a corner kick ricocheted out to him. Until that point it appeared Portland would go down to another scoreless defeat after being shut out in its previous three games.
The Timbers (5-12-5) outshot Dallas 19-8, and maintained their aggressiveness down the stretch with temperatures in the mid-90s.
