Portland Timbers Win

By Jim McCoy Thu 25th July SportsMajor League SoccerPortland Timbers
Jose Valencia scored in the 53rd minute, and goalkeepers Milos Kocic and Jake Gleeson combined for the shutout Wednesday night to earn the Portland Timbers a 1-0 victory in an exhibition match with English side Norwich City. Valencia found himself unguarded on the left side and collected a pass from Kalif Alhassan, then slid his shot past Canaries goalkeeper Carlo Nash to tally the game's only goal. Portland will return to MLS action on Saturday with a trip to face Western Conference rivals San Jose. Norwich is preparing for its third consecutive season in the Barclays Premier League after spending the previous six seasons in lower divisions. The Canaries finished 12th and 11th, respectively, in their first two seasons back in the 20-team English top flight.
