Andrew Jean-Baptiste on February 11, 2012
Andrew Jean-Baptiste scores a 94th-minute winner to hand Portland Timbers a 2-1 victory over Los Angeles Galaxy in their MLS Western Conference clash.

Andrew Jean-Baptiste scored an injury-time winner for Portland Timbers to secure a 2-1 home victory over Los Angeles Galaxy in the MLS.

The visitors took the lead in the 17th minute when Marcelo Sarvas headed Hector Jimenez's cross into the bottom corner from six yards past the outstretched hand of Donovan Ricketts.

However, the Timbers were level within 10 minute as Ryan Johnson turned the ball in from close range after the home side quickly took a free kick and Darlington Nagbe hit a pinpoint pass for the striker to tap home.

Los Angeles almost retook the lead in the 35th minute but Omar Gonzalez hit the post with a close-range header after latching onto Sean Franklin's cross. Minutes later Ricketts made a fine save to deny Juninho from a free kick.

After the half-time interval, Galaxy keeper Carlo Cudicini made a great double save first to deny Nagbe's low effort and the former Tottenham Hotspur man quickly sprung to his feet to turn Johnson's shot on the rebound wide.

At the other end Ricketts made another great save to keep the scores level as Gyasi Zardes raided into the box, but the keeper made the stop low to his right with his feet.

Just as the game looked to be heading for a draw, Baptiste headed home Diego Valeri's cross past Cudicini in the 94th minute to earn his side all three points.
