Portland, Ore. • Clint Dempsey scored a hat trick, including two goals in the final five minutes of the match and the Seattle Sounders staged a furious late rally to pull out a 4-4 draw with the rival Portland Timbers on Saturday afternoon.
Trailing 4-2 for most of the second half after goals from Diego Chara and Maximiliano Urruti early in the half gave Portland the advantage, Dempsey led Seattle’s stunning late comeback to earn a point in the first Cascadia rivalry matchup of the season.
D.C. United 2, Revolution 0 • In Washington, goalkeeper Andrew Dykstra earned a shutout in his first MLS start in nearly four seasons and D.C. United snapped a 15-game winless streak.
It was United’s first win of the season and Rolfe scored his first goal of 2014 after being traded from the Chicago Fire this week.
