Movsisyan's PK lifts Real Salt Lake to 2-2 draw with Timbers

SANDY, Utah (AP) — Yura Movsisyan converted a penalty kick to tie it in the 70th minute and Real Salt Lake held on for a 2-2 draw with the Portland Timbers on Saturday night.

Movsisyan drew the penalty when Portland's Jermaine Taylor tripped him near the top left corner of the 18-yard box.

Juan Manuel Martinez opened the scoring for Real Salt Lake (7-4-3) in the 17th minute with a header from the right side of the 6-yard box off Javier Morales' corner.

Fanendo Adi's tied it for Portland (5-6-5) in the 29th minute with a breakaway off Taylor's pass. It was Adi's ninth goal of the season, putting him second on the MLS goals list behind New York City FC's David Villa (11).
