Late goal earns T2 a draw
PORTLAND 2, Fresno FC 2
Nathan Smith scored in the second minute of stoppage time to earn T2 a draw with Fresno FC in front of 3,513 fans at Providence Park.
Todd Wharton converted a penalty kick in the 47th minute to put Portland up 1-0.
Fresno responded with goals from Elijah Martin in the 53rd minute and Qudus Lawal in the 68th minute.
Portland is 6-2-6 (24 points), good for fourth place in the USL Championship Western Conference. Fresno FC is 5-2-7 (22) and in sixth place.
It appeared T2 would come up short after Wharton missed just wide on a good chance from 13 yards in the 89th minute. But with just over a minute of stoppage time remaining, Modou Jadama lofted a ball to the top of the 18. An airborne Ryan Sierakowski was able to back-heel the ball into the path of the fullback Smith for a close-range finish.
Portland is 3-1-3 both at home and on the road.
Next for T2 is a June 22 road game against Orange County SC.
