Timbers And Whitecaps Play To 0-0 Draw In MLS Playoff Match

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - David Ousted had six saves and the Vancouver Whitecaps held off the charging Portland Timbers for a 0-0 draw in the first leg of their Western Conference semifinal series Sunday.

Ousted, who led Major League Soccer with 13 shutouts during the regular season, deflected Diego Valeri's dangerous free kick in the 71st minute to help preserve the tie. The two-legged, aggregate-goal series moves to Vancouver's BC Place next Sunday.

The Timbers were without starting goal keeper Adam Kwarasey, who sat because of a flu-like illness. He was replaced by Jake Gleeson, who played with the Timbers' reserve team, the USL's Timbers 2.

Gleeson, who hadn't played in an MLS match since 2011, had three saves.

Browning Has 5 Total TDS As Washington Routs Arizona 49-3

SEATTLE (AP) - Jake Browning passed for four touchdowns and added a fifth by running as he led the Huskies to a 49-3 rout of Arizona.

Browning was nearly flawless in leading the Huskies Saturday night to their most lopsided conference victory since a 59-7 win over Colorado in 2013.

Browning threw three first-half touchdowns as the Huskies (4-4, 2-3 Pac-12) built a 21-3 lead and added a 31-yard TD strike to Dante Pettis on the opening possession of the second half. Browning capped his night with his first career touchdown rushing to give the Huskies a 35-3 lead.

Browning finished 16 of 24 passing for 263 yards. He joined Jake Locker, Keith Price, Brock Huard and Cody Pickett as the only Washington QBs with at least four touchdown passes in a game since 1996.

Cougars Come Up Just Short Versus No. 8 Stanford

PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) — Washington State kicker Erik Powell finally missed on his sixth kick of the game, going wide right on a 43-yarder as time expired to allow No. 8 Stanford to escape with a 30-28 win on Saturday night.

Powell tied Drew Dunning's 2003 school record with five field goals despite rainy, windy conditions, but pulled the last one wide.

Conrad Ukropina kicked a 19-yard field goal with 1:54 left to put Stanford ahead.

Quarterback Kevin Hogan ran for 112 yards and two touchdowns for Stanford (7-1, 6-0 Pac-12), which is the only undefeated team in Pac-12 play.

Washington State (5-3, 3-2) had a three-game winning streak snapped.

Washington State came back with an 81-yard drive that ended with Falk hitting River Cracraft for a 1-yard touchdown pass. Falk's conversion pass failed and the Cougars led 28-27.

After Ukropina's kick, Washington State marched to the Stanford 29 and Powell hooked his attempt wide.

The Cardinal have won seven straight over the Cougars.
