David Accam scores, Fire ties Timber 1-1

BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. (AP) — David Accam scored for the first time in more than two months to help the Chicago Fire tie the Portland Timbers 1-1 on Saturday night.

Accam, who missed six games because of a knee injury and was suspended for a seventh, redirected a low cross from Kenney Igboananike into the net to tie it in the 20th minute.

Diego Valeri put the Timbers in front about 2 minutes earlier, side-netting a right footer after winning an errant clearance.

Chicago (2-5-5) hasn't had a multi-goal game since its season-opening, 4-3 loss to NYCFC on March 6. The Fire are last in MLS with 11 points and 10 goals.

Jake Gleeson had five saves for Portland (4-6-4). He has allowed 12 goals in seven starts since replacing injured-starter Adam Kwarasey — who recorded 13 shutouts and helped the Timbers win the MLS Cup last season.
