SANDY, Utah, Oct. 23 (UPI) --
Mamadou Danso's close-range goal in stoppage time Saturday lifted the Portland Timbers into a 1-1 draw with Real Salt Lake.
Danso's score enabled Portland to finish with a record of 11-14-9 (42 points).
Alvaro Saborio found the net for Real Salt Lake (15-11-8), which heads into the post-season with two consecutive ties.
RSL's loss left the door open for FC Dallas to grab third place in the Western Conference seedings, but Dallas was routed by San Jose 4-2 Saturday.
