Points are great. And the Portland Timbers took all three points from their Cascadia showdown with the Vancouver Whitecaps on Saturday afternoon.

As a result, the Timbers still sit atop the MLS standings and it's hard to complain too much from the top.

Yet the Timbers' performance on Saturday against a Whitecaps team that's been in the midst of a serious road slump left a fair amount to be desired, as Portland's shorthanded attack struggled to keep control of a game that they led 2-0 at halftime.

The unlikeliest of duos handed Minnesota United life in the second half on Saturday night in their 2-2 draw with the Vancouver Whitecaps.

Defenders Francisco Calvo and Jerome Thiesson both scored their first career MLS goals in the second half to rescue the Loons from a two-goal deficit.

Poor play out of the back from the Loons led to the first Vancouver tally, as a poor back pass intended for Bobby Shuttleworth forced the goalkeeper to slide in a challenge against Brek Shea that ended with Shea on the ground.

Not many (any?) followers of D.C.

But hey, give the Black-and-Red credit for sneaking out of pretty and clean British Columbia with the points in a 1-0 win, their second road win on the season by the end of May, equalling the amount of road wins they had all of 2016.
