COLUMBUS, Ohio, July 7 (UPI) -- Bernardo Anor tallied in the 5th minute Sunday and the Columbus Crew held on to down Portland 1-0, snapping the Timbers' 15-game unbeaten streak.

Anor notched the game's only goal when he got a head on Federico Higuain's corner kick and put it into the net, recording his second goal in two games.

Shortly thereafter, the Timbers went down a man when Pa-Modou Kah was handed a red card for fouling Columbus forward Aaron Schoenfeld in the box and the Crew (6-8-5) went on to end a three-game skid.

The Timbers (7-2-9) fell for the first time since March 9, going 7-0-8 during the 15-match stretch.
