VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) Second-half substitute Jose Valencia scored in the 83rd minute to give the Portland Timbers a 2-2 draw against the Vancouver Whitecaps on Saturday night.

Will Johnson also scored for Portland and assisted on the equalizer to help the Timbers (4-1-7) extend their unbeaten strike to 10 games. The tying goal came while Portland was playing with 10 men due to Mamadou Danso's ejection 2 minutes earlier.

Camilo had a goal and an assist, and Gershon Koffie also scored for the Whitecaps (3-4-4), who are 3-0-3 at home.

Valencia scored after receiving a long, high lob from Johnson. Valencia and Vancouver defender Brad Rusin went up for the ball in the Whitecaps' box, and it appeared to touch the Portland player's arm. But play was allowed to continue, and Valencia tucked a short shot inside the near post.

Camilo has been utilized mainly as a midfielder but played as a lone striker Saturday, generating some early scoring chances.

The Brazilian fired just wide on a free kick from about 35 yards out in the 23rd, taking the shot after Russell Teibert was fouled on the right flank. But Camilo made no mistake a minute later, curling a shot right into the corner of the net from about 20 yards out.

Camilo had another chance in the first minute of the second half, but Portland goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts dove to stop his shot from just outside the right corner of the 18-yard box.

Johnson's goal in the 52nd tied it 1-1 on a penalty kick. The spot kick was awarded after Johnson's shot hit Vancouver defender Andy O'Brien's arm and the Whitecaps were called for a hand-ball.
