FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) – Jack Jewsbury scored in the 38th minute and the expansion Portland Timbers earned their first point in Major League Soccer with a 1-1 tie at the New England Revolution on Saturday night.

Jewsbury tied it with a left-footed drive into the far right corner after a nice touch pass from Jeremy Hall.

Portland lost its first two MLS games, 3-1 at Colorado on March 19 and 2-0 at Toronto FC last Saturday.

New England (1-0-2) took the lead in the 22nd minute when rookie midfielder Stephen McCarthy scored his first career MLS goal, a drive into the lower left corner after Portland’s David Horst had headed the ball out.

New England’s Sainey Nyassi had a chance in the 21st minute, kicking the ball off the Portland crossbar. Timbers midfielder Kalif Alhassan drilled a direct kick off the left post in the 70th minute.
