PORTLAND, Ore. Randy Bullock Jersey . -- Pa Modou Kah scored in stoppage time and the Portland Timbers rallied for a 2-2 draw with FC Dallas on Wednesday night in the last scheduled game before Major League Soccer takes a break for the World Cup. Fabian Castillo and Blaz Perez scored for injury-depleted FC Dallas in the first half, but Portlands Will Johnson narrowed it on a penalty kick in the 79th minute in the chippy match that saw two Dallas players sent off with red cards and an assistant coach ejected. "We knew that the pressure was coming," Dallas coach Oscar Pareja said. Both teams were playing on a short turnaround. Injury-depleted Dallas FC (6-7-4) was coming off a 3-2 victory over Colorado on Saturday. The Timbers (4-4-8) are winless at home in their last four matches. Portland beat Real Salt Lake 3-1 Saturday, the teams first victory at Rio Tinto since joining MLS in 2011. Portland coach Caleb Porter was frustrated that his team keeps conceding goals at home. "No one wants to step up," he said. "No one wants to take the bull by the horns and lead this team on the back line." Defender Kah returned to the starting lineup after sitting out the RSL match with sore Achilles tendons. Defender Jack Jewsbury was a reserve after starting 12 matches this season. Dallas has been hit hard by injuries. It was without defenders Matt Hedges and Walker Zimmerman. Midfielders Michel, Mauro Diaz and Hendry Thomas did not play, either. Rauwshan McKenzie thought he had a goal for the Timbers in the 10th minute, but Johnson was offside. Castillo put FC Dallas in front with a header toward the box that he chased down himself and buried in the left corner past Timbers goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts. It was his fifth goal of the season. FC Dallas made it 2-0 with Perezs hard boot from out front in the 39th minute. He also has five goals. Johnson caught Dallas goalkeeper Raul Fernandez out of his goal in the 62nd minute, but the shot sailed over the net. Johnson was able to beat Fernandez on the penalty kick to spoil the shutout. "Obviously its good to come back and get those two goals, but its tough because there were so many good chances out there," Johnson said. Dallas Moises Hernandez and Perez each were sent off with red cards in the final minutes as the match got heated. Dallas assistant coach Josema Bazan was also ejected by the officials for "not behaving in a responsible manner in the technical area." Bazan appeared to confront a fan after he got a liquid thrown at him. As time ran out, Castillo headed toward Ricketts and bumped a referee repeatedly. He had to be restrained by teammates. "We kept fighting against many other factors," Pareja said. When asked if his players got frustrated with the match, Pareja responded: "No comment." The Timbers held a moment of silence for Emilio Hoffman, the 14-year-old Reynolds High School freshman who was killed Tuesday in a shooting at the school east of Portland. Hoffman was a soccer player and fan who wore No. 29 for the high school team. The Timbers Army supporters group honoured Hoffman by waving their scarves in the 29th minute. Jordan Willis Jersey .com) - Calgary Flames forward Johnny Gaudreau has been selected as the NHLs Rookie of the Month for December, the league announced Friday. Boomer Esiason Jersey . - Mike Zimmer has brought a demanding style to the Minnesota Vikings.OAKLAND, Calif. - Golden State Warriors centre Andrew Bogut has a fractured right rib that could keep him out for the start of the playoffs — and possibly all of the post-season. The team said Wednesday night that an X-ray revealed the injury. Warriors coach Mark Jackson and Bogut both said hes out indefinitely and gave no timetable for his return. Speaking in a sombre tone in his corner of the locker room, though, Bogut said he has done enough research and spoken to enough doctors that he will not come back until the rib heals. "Ive got to be careful, because if it cracks Im looking at a punctured lung. Youll see me in the hospital with a tube coming out of me," Bogut said. "Its one of those things people have played through, but this is too close to comfort for me." Bogut said he first felt the injury when Denvers Kenneth Faried elbowed him in a loss to the Nuggets last Thursday. The symptoms continued against the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday, he said, and he took a pain-killing injection before playing at Portland on Sunday night. Bogut left the overtime loss to the Trail Blazers in the fourth quarter after getting sandwiched by two players. He said he cant take deep breaths and is pain anytime he coughs or sneezes — let alone tries to run. "It definitely wasnt as bad until I fully ccracked it," Bogut said. AJ McCarron Jersey. "I thought I was winded for a second, but it wasnt going away. I ended up going back in the game for the last possession (of regulation). I dont know how." Backup centre Jermaine ONeal was starting in Boguts place Monday night against Minnesota. Jackson also said he also could slide power forward David Lee to centre if needed depending on the matchup in the playoffs. Last years backup centre, Festus Ezeli, has been out all season recovering from right knee surgery and remains day to day. Jackson also indicated that reserve centres Hilton Armstrong and Ognjez Kuzmic are likely not options. "It certainly does not make us a better basketball team," Jackson said of Boguts absence. Golden States centre is hardly the only one ailing at the worst time of the season. Starting small forward Andre Iguodala sat out Monday night with right knee tendinitis that he has said is something he will have to deal with for the rest of the season. Lee is playing with a nerve injury in his right hamstring/back right and ONeal has been coping with pain in his wrist and knees. Harrison Barnes started for Iguodala against the Timberwolves. The Warriors visit Denver in their regular-season finale Wednesday night before the playoffs begin Saturday or Sunday.
