PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Gaston Fernandez scored on a header in the 85th minute to pull the Portland Timbers into a 3-3 draw with the Columbus Crew on Saturday night.

There were a flurry of goals in the final 10 minutes. Portland's Will Johnson tied the match at 2 in the 80th minute. Ethan Finlay's shot deflected off a Portland player for an own goal for Columbus a minute later.

The draw snapped a three-match losing streak for Columbus, but the Crew (3-4-4) remain winless in their last eight matches. Columbus hadn't scored a goal since April 26 in a 1-1 draw with the New York Red Bulls.

Federico Higuain had a pair of goals for the Crew and Maximiliano Urruti opened the scoring for Portland (1-3-7) in the fifth minute.
