Timbers Beat East-Leading DC United 1-0
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Captain Will Johnson returned to Portland's lineup to help the Timbers beat Eastern Conference-leading D.C. United 1-0 on Wednesday night. Johnson missed the first 12 games of the season while recovering from a broken right leg suffered on Sept. 27. He played 84 minutes before being substituted out. Maximiliano Urruti scored the lone goal in the fifth minute. Gaston Fernandez jumped on a loose ball on the right wing and sent a hard, rolling cross into the box for Urruti to bang home for his second goal of the season.
