The Jamaican Sensation Notched a Hat Trick on the Evening, and his 3rd Secured the Point for United

(ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico) New Mexico United remains unbeaten at Isotopes Park, as they drew with Portland Timbers 2, 3:3. A stoppage time equalizer from Kevaughn Frater, which completed his hat trick, sent the nearly 13,000 fans at Isotopes Park into a frenzy.

In the 50th minute, Frater netted his first. Chris Wehan and Manny Padilla were both credited with the assist. Just four minutes later, the referee awarded New Mexico United a penalty. Frater coolly tucked it into the bottom left corner.

Timbers 2 refused to surrender. Eryk Williamson notched a 66th minute goal off of an assist from Christian Ojeda. In the 68th, a tricky ball ricocheted off of Ryan Sierakowski, and snuck past the unsuspecting Cody Mizell. Things seemed to take a devastating turn after the referee awarded Portland a penalty in the 77th minute. Williamson placed it in the bottom left hand corner, to give the visitors a 2:3 lead.

New Mexico United upped the intensity in the final 15 minutes of the match, but could not find the equalizer until a flurry of activity and confusion in the box set up a sitter for Frater, which he smashed into the back of the net. 12, 921 NM United fans went crazy.
