SANDY — Nat Borchers scored in the 95th minute to give the Portland Timbers a 1-0 victory over Real Salt Lake on Saturday night.

Borchers headed down Diego Valeri’s corner kick past goalkeeper Nick Rimando. Rimando had conceded the corner with a diving save of Maximiliano Urruti’s right-footed blast from the top of the 18-yard box.

Borchers joined the Timbers (11-8-6) this year and was making his first return to Rio Tinto Stadium after playing seven seasons in Real Salt Lake (7-10-8).

Timbers goalkeeper Adam Kwarasey made five saves for his 11th shutout of the season.
