BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. -- Substitute Daniel Paladini scored on a 26-yard free kick in the 82nd minute to lift the Chicago Fire into a 2-2 draw with the Portland Timbers on Saturday night.

Chicago (3-7-3, 12 points) also got an open-net goal from Mike Magee in the 68th minute in coming back from a 2-0 second-half deficit to extend its unbeaten run to three games. Portland (5-1-8, 23 points) stretched its unbeaten streak to 12 games, not having lost since a 2-1 decision to Montreal on March 9.

Timbers forward Diego Valeri scored in the 34th minute when his shot hit the left post and ricocheted right and past Fire goalkeeper Sean Johnson into the far corner. Portland also got a goal in the 58th minute when Ben Zemanski lined a 25-yard shot past Johnson.

Magee has two goals with the Fire and nine overall since being acquired last month in a trade with the Los Angeles Galaxy.
