COMMERCE CITY, Colorado — Gaston Fernandez scored in the 76th minute to lift the Portland Timbers to a 2-2 draw with the Colorado Rapids on Saturday night.

Maximiliano Urruti made a nice play to settle a bouncing ball and found Fernandez cutting in the right side of the box. Fernandez then muscled off a defender and finished the great feed past keeper John Berner.

Portland (8-8-12) scored first in the 43rd minute, as Diego Valeri's half-volley cleared Berner for his eighth goal of the season.

The Rapids (8-13-7) tied it at the 48-minute mark. Colorado was awarded a penalty kick on a disputed hand-ball call, and Dillon Powers converted the PK for his sixth goal.

Deshorn Brown headed home a pass from Marc Burch in the 66th minute to put the Rapids ahead.
