COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (AP) -- Will Johnson scored two goals, including a penalty kick in the 71st minute, and the Portland Timbers rallied from a two-goal second-half deficit to tie the Colorado Rapids 2-2 on Saturday night.

Johnson scored Portland's first goal in the 55th minute.

The Timbers (0-1-3) have never won in Colorado, going 0-3-1 in their matches at the Rapids.

Portland continued its trend of allowing the first goal in all four games.

Dillon Powers scored his first career goal for Colorado (0-3-2) in the 18th minute and Hendry Thomas scored on a penalty kick in the 48th.

The tie extended Colorado's winless streak to start a season to five games. The franchise record is six, 0-5-1 to open the 2003 season.
