PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Yimmi Chara scored in the opening minutes and the Portland Timbers went on to beat Pacific Northwest rival Seattle 1-0 on Wednesday night.

It was the first time two sets of brothers played against each other in MLS history: Yimmi and Diego Chara for Portland, and Alex and Cristian Roldan for Seattle. 

The Sounders peppered Portland goalkeeper Steve Clark with shots but couldn't score, snapping a two-game winning streak.
