FRIDAY LOCAL SPORTS NEWS/Portland's USL team beats LA Galaxy II, 7-3 golfer Aaron Wise stays hot


Portland 7, LA Galaxy II 3

• Foster Langsdorf scored the first hat trick in T2 history and Portland scored four goals in the final 14 minutes to pull away from a 3-3 tie.

Eryk Williamson, Marvin Loria, Victor Arboleda and Augustine Williams scored late as Portland prevailed in a high-scoring match on Friday at Providence Park.

Portland improved to 6-3-3 for 21 points, tied for second in the United Soccer League Western Conference entering weekend play.

LA Galaxy II rallied from a 2-0 halftime deficit to tie the score at 3-3 on 15-year-old Efrain Alvarez's second goal of the day in the 68th minute.

A run by Arboleda set up the go-ahead goal in the 81st minute as he beat four LA players on a run into the penalty area. His centering attempt deflected to Williamson, who had an open net to shoot at.

Portland added three goals in the four minutes of stoppage time. Loria struck with a free kick from about 25 yards, Arboleda forced a turnover and finished and Williams scored when a Loria shot deflected into the goal in the closing seconds.

Langsdorf scored the first three goals of the game for the first three-goal game in T2 history. The Timbers' Homegrown Player from Vancouver, Washington, converted off assists from Arboleda and from defender Jimmy Mulligan to put Portland up 2-0 at halftime. The second goal came at the end of a quick up-field transition play that saw Portland connect a half-dozen passes.

Langsdorf's third goal and team-leading fifth of the season came when he drew and converted a penalty kick in the 57th minute.

Timbers defenders Vytas and Bill Tuiloma each made his consecutive start for T2 as they work back from injuries. Also among the seven MLS Timbers who got action was midfielder Jack Barmby.

A crowd of 5,857 watched, many of them area school children on a Providence Health & Fitness Day promotion.

Next up for T2 is a 7:30 p.m. Tuesday exhibition at Providence Park against German second division club FC St. Pauli.

Portland returns to USL play at 2 p.m. Tuesday at Providence Park against Real Monarchs SLC.

• Caroline Inglis was 1-over through 13 holes of Friday's second round of the Kingsmill Championship when play was suspended at Williamsburg, Virginia.

The cut line projects to be at 1-under, so the tour rookie from Portland will need to make up ground on the final five second-round holes when play resumes Saturday morning.

In Gee Chun (11-under) led the tournament among players who completed the second round.


• Wilsonville's Brian Henninger is tied for 15th and Corvallis native Bob Gilder tied for 26th through two rounds of the Regions Tradition at Birmingham, Alabama.

SEATTLE 5, Detroit 4

• A five-run seventh inning turned around a game that Detroit pitcher Michael Fulmer seemed to be in control of, allowing only two singles through the first six innings.

Four walks fueled the decisive inning. Ben Gamel opened the scoring with a two-run single. Jean Segura and Mitch Haniger delivered clutch hits.

Dan Altavilla (3-2) got the pitching win in relief of Felix Hernandez. Edwin Diaz recorded his 15th save.

The Tigers scored three runs in the top of the first off Hernandez, who struck out four, walked three and allowed six hits in his six innings.

The Tigers and the Mariners play again at 6 p.m. Saturday.
