PORTLAND, Ore., March 3 (UPI) -- New York's Jamison Olave scored an own-goal in the 83rd minute Sunday, allowing the Portland Timbers to escape with a 3-3 draw.

The Timbers began a rally from 3-1 deficit in the second half when Darlington Nagbe scored on the rebound off a hard Diego Valeri shot in the 56th minute.

They tied it 27 minutes later when substitute Jose Adolfo Valencia launched a shot into the area that bounded off Olave and into the net for the equalizer.

Valeri also netted a first-half tally for the Timbers (0-0-1) in their first game under new head Coach Caleb Porter.

Fabian Espindola scored twice and Olave also found the net in the first half for the Red Bulls (0-0-1), who settled for a tie in their initial contest under the own new mentor, Mike Petke.
