CARSON, Calif. - The Los Angeles Galaxy rallied for a 2-2 draw with Portland on Friday night after the Timbers gave up an own goal in the 86th minute.

The Galaxy's Marcelo Sarvas sent a ball into the 6-yard box that was deflected into the net by Portland's Rauwshan McKenzie.

Los Angeles (5-3-6) scored in the 65th minute when Landon Donovan settled a ball outside the penalty area and tapped it to Marcelo Sarvas who sent a shot through traffic for a goal. It was Donovan's team-record 92nd assist for the Galaxy.

For the 13th time this year, Portland (4-5-9) gave up the opening goal — the most in Major League Soccer.

Two minutes later, the Timbers scored twice in a 3-minute span to take the lead. The first was a strike by Diego Valeri that was deflected into the net. The second came when Jorge Villafana knocked in failed clear.
