FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Liam Ridgewell scored his first career MLS goal for Portland in the Timbers' 1-1 tie with the New England Revolution on Saturday night.

Ridgewell stole the ball near midfield, dribbled past two defenders and slotted home a shot from inside the penalty area in the 65th minute. He joined Portland (7-7-10) on June 25, after he signed a designated player contract from the English Premier League's West Bromwich Albion.

Charlie Davies scored for a second consecutive game in the 27th minute — his first MLS goals since 2011. He got behind the defense and slid a tough-angled ball off the far post.

New England (8-12-3) goalkeeper Bobby Shuttleworth preserved the draw with his diving save on Maximiliano Urruti's close-range attempt in the 82nd minute.
