Cooper Gives FC Dallas 1-1 Draw With Timbers

FRISCO (AP) – Kenny Cooper scored on a penalty kick in the 77th minute to lift FC Dallas into a 1-1 tie with the Portland Timbers on Wednesday night.

The draw extended the unbeaten streaks for two hottest clubs in MLS to eight games apiece.

Cooper’s second goal of the season came after Portland’s Andrew Jean-Baptiste was shown a yellow card for pulling down Blas Perez inside the penalty area a minute earlier. Cooper then stepped to the dot and slotted a low shot just inside the left post.

Raul Fernandez made three saves for Dallas, which owns the league’s best record and is now 6-0-2 in its last eight. Dallas also remains unbeaten at home (5-0-1), outscoring the opposition 10-3.

Diego Chara scored and Ricketts made four saves for the Timbers.
