Larrys Mabiala lifts Portland Timbers past Colorado Rapids into Western Conference final

Larrys Mabiala scored a dramatic goal in the 90th minute as the visiting Portland Timbers earned a 1-0 victory over the top-seeded Colorado Rapids on Thursday to advance to the Western Conference final.

Mabiala scored for the second straight postseason game during a scramble following a corner kick.

Felipe Mora had his right-footed shot from close range blocked, however the ball caromed off a defender to Mabiala. Mabiala corralled the ball and lifted a right-footed shot from the center of the box just over Colorado goalkeeper William Yarbrough.
