Timbers fined for incident with LAFC
MLS didn't say for how much, but its Disciplinary Committee has fined Portland for actions during a confrontation in front of the Los Angeles FC bench last week at Providence Park.
The incident took place during second-half stoppage time in LAFC's 3-2 victory.
Portland midfielder Sebastian Blanco and defender Larrys Mabiala were found in violation of the MLS rule prohibiting hands to the face, head or neck of an opponent.
Timbers coach Giovanni Savarese and LAFC assistant coach Ante Razov were fined for violating the MLS bench behavior policy.
Each club was issued a warning for violating the league's mass confrontation policy for the first time.
