PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Due to continuing high temperatures in the Portland metro area, Saturday's Timbers match against the Houston Dynamo has been pushed back two hours.

The kickoff time is now set for 8 p.m. instead of 6 p.m. on July 28. 

With temperatures expected to be in the 90s Saturday, the new start time will allow for lower on-field and in-stadium temperatures later in the evening, according to the Timbers.

The game will now broadcast live on FOX 12 PLUS with local radio broadcasts on 750 AM/102.9 FM The Game (English) and La GranD 1150 AM/93.5 FM (Spanish).
