SANDY, Utah—Futty Danso scored in stoppage time to lift the Portland Timbers to a 1-1 draw with Real Salt Lake on Saturday night.
Danso's late goal helped the Timbers (11-14-9) finish the season on a positive note after barely missing out on a playoff berth.
Alvaro Saborio scored in the 45th minute for Salt Lake (15-11-8), which had clinched a playoff berth for the fourth consecutive season a month ago and could have wrapped up third place in the Western Conference with a win.
Saborio got his 11th goal in MLS play this season when he beat Portland goalkeeper Troy Perkins as he charged toward him and chipped the ball over Perkins' head. The goal snapped a 270-minute scoreless streak for Salt Lake, going back to a 2-1 loss to Los Angeles on Oct. 1.
