05/25 20:52 CDT Timbers cap 12-game trip with 3-1 win over Union Timbers cap 12-game trip with 3-1 win over Union CHESTER, Pa. (AP) --- Brian Fernndez scored twice and the Portland Timbers beat Philadelphia 3-1 on Saturday night to knock the Union from the top spot in the Eastern Conference standings. The game ended Portland's 12-game, season-opening trip because of stadium renovations. The Timbers will return home Saturday to re-open Providence Park against Los Angeles FC. Fernndez gave the Timbers a 2-0 lead with goals in the 31st and 36th minutes. Fernndez opened the scoring with a header to finish Andy Polo's pinpoint cross, then finished a counterattack highlighted by unselfish passes late in the charge by Diego Valeri and Diego Chara. Fernndez has three goals in his first two games after signing as a Designated Player on May 6 for Portland (4-6-2). Kacper Przybylkos slotted home an awkward finish in the 47th minute for the Union (7-4-3) that bounced off the post and curved over the goal line with the ball's heavy spin. Valeri capped the scoring for Portland in the 87th minute with a low hard shot from long distance. The loss ended the Union's six-game unbeaten streak.
