Diego Valeri scores right before halftime (43’) to give the visitors the lead at halftime, but Dillon Powers converts a penalty kick early in the second half (48’) to even the score. Deshorn Brown puts the Rapids ahead (66’) but Gastón Fernández equalizes (76’) to ensure the game ends in a draw. In the Western Conference the Timbers and Rapids are in sixth and seventh place, respectively.
Timbers defender Paparatto is suspended for one game, in addition to being fined an unnamed amount, as a result of an incident that occurred during Sunday’s 4-2 home defeat against the Sounders. Paparatto struck the head of opponent Chad Marshall while defending a corner kick. At the time Paparatto received a yellow card for the infraction.
