Toronto • Darel Russell capped a remarkable comeback with a goal in the 90th minute, giving Toronto FC a 2-2 draw with FC Dallas on Saturday.

Russell hammered home a right-footed shot from just outside the penalty box off the post and in to beat goalie Raul Fernandez. It was a sweet redemption for the English fullback, who was victimized on both Los Angeles goals in a 2-2 tie last weekend.

Substitute Justin Braun assisted on the tying goal after scoring one himself minutes earlier to start the comeback. The big forward, in his Toronto debut, headed the ball in from close range in the 85th after defender Matt Hedges failed to clear the ball.

Andrew Jacobson and Blaz Perez scored for FC Dallas, which had won three straight, including two consecutive shutouts. Braun's goal ended the shutout streak at 272 minutes, the first goal conceded by Dallas since March 17 against Houston.

Columbus 1, Philadelphia 1 • In Columbus, Ohio, Dominic Oduro scored in the 72nd minute to help the Columbus Crew rally for a 1-1 draw against the Philadelphia Union on Saturday.

Oduro took a pass from Eddie Gaven and struck a rising ball that sneaked inside the right post for his second goal, countering a 34th-minute goal by Jack McInerney.

McInerney received a pass by Danny Cruz from the right flank after the Union beat the offside trap for a two-man break. McInerney scored his third goal into an open net after goalkeeper Andy Gruenebaum came out to challenge.

The Crew (2-1-2) has played to draws in its two home matches, while the Union (2-2-1) earned its first point in Columbus in four tries.

Portland 2, Houston 0 • In Portland, Ore., Ryan Johnson scored two goals and the Portland Timbers beat the Houston Dynamo 2-0 Saturday night for their first win of the season.

Johnson, a forward acquired from Toronto in the offseason, scored goals in the 55th and 73rd minutes as the Timbers came alive in the second half to beat the Dynamo for the first time in their three-year history. —
